Mv Werften has signed a deal with Deltamarin and Elomatic to develop the basic and detail design of its second Global class cruise ship.
The deals with Deltamarin and Elomatic are worth approximately €16.5m and €17m, respectively.
Deltamarin and Elomatic have already started working on the design of the ship, which will be constructed in parallel in Mv Werften’s shipyards in Wismar and Rostock, Germany.
As part of the contract, Deltamarin and Elomatic will provide engineering and site services at the shipyard during construction.
Deltamarin CEO Janne Uotila said: “We look forward to further developing the cooperation with the yard, providing them with excellent services and helping them execute Genting’s extensive newbuilding programme.”
Deltamarin and Elomatic, both headquartered in Turku Finland, were also involved in parts of the basic and detail design of the first Global class ship under a contract awarded by Mv Werften in July 2016.
The second Global class will be around 342m long and 46.4m wide with a gross register tonnage of 204,000t.
Star Cruises will operate the Global class ships, which are designed specifically for the Asian market with the ability to carry up to 9,500 passengers.
Once the first Global class vessel is completed, it will be the largest unit of its kind to be built in Germany.
