Fincantieri teams up with Carnival and CSSC


Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has signed two memorandums of understanding (MoU), one with cruise liner giant Carnival Corporation and the other with China CSSC Holdings Limited, a unit of China’s
shipbuilding conglomerate China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC). The agreements are aimed at exploring the possibility of joint ventures in cruise shipbuilding for the Chinese market, according to Fincantieri.

“This would be an unprecedented, three-way collaborative effort to build the first-ever cruise ships to be made in China,” Italian builder of cruise ships said. Under the agreements, Fincantieri would work with CSSC to develop cruise ships production capacity in China. Fincantieri would provide specialized services and components to support CSSC’s shipyards.

On its part, Carnival would work closely with CSSC and Fincantieri and contribute its expertise to create the vision, definition, and specifications for the China-built cruise ships. The Chinese Ministry of Transport (MOT) projects China to be the second largest global cruise market after the U.S. in the next several years based on economic growth, increased spending power of Chinese consumers and growing demand for cruise vacations.

China could see 4.5 million cruise passengers by 2020, according to the MOT, and is expected to eventually become the world’s largest cruise market. Potential partnerships like the ones being explored between Fincantieri, Carnival and CSSC are aimed at supporting the MOT’s pro-growth cruise policies and the rise of overall tourism in China.

  1. Fincantieri teams up with Carnival and CSSC.

    Penso che se questo accordo andrà realmente in porto per la Fincantieri il futuro riserverà sorprese molto sgradite, poiché con il nostro "particolarmente gradito contributo" nel giro di un decennio il colosso della Cantieristica Cinese probabilmente diventerà di fatto il nuovo leader mondiale anche nella costruzione di navi da crociera, in quanto per noi sarà molto difficile se non impossibile poter competere in termini di costi ed investimenti con un colosso del genere.
