Fincantieri Kicks Off Construction of 7th Fremm Ship

Fincantieri’s Riva Trigoso yard (Sestri Levante, Genoa), has begun construction of the seventh Fremm vessel with a steel cutting ceremony held on June 4th.

The ship, which will be delivered in the spring of 2018, will be 144 metres long, 19.7 metres wide with a displacement of approximately 6,700 tons. Capable of reaching speeds of over 27 knots, the vessel will have an availability of 200 berths and a crew of 145.

Prime contractor for Italy on the Fremm program is Orizzonte Sistemi Navali. Included within the current framework of the program for ltaly are eight vessels and an option for a further two which has still to be exercised.

Fincantieri is one of the world’s largest shipbuilding groups, which in over 200 years of maritime history has built more than 7,000 vessels. It is world leader in cruise ship construction and a reference player in other sectors, from naval vessels to cruise ferries, from mega-yachts to special high value-added vessels, ship repairs and conversions and offshore vessels.
