SOMEC group fully- owned cos. SINTESI and NAVALTECH have won a series of cruise liners’ refit projects by one of the world’s largest shipowners. The contracts, worth a total value of €22.1mn, represent the highest awarded amount to SG in its twenty years of refitting business.
In greater detail, the two companies will contribute to the total contemporary and sustainable renovation of 7 cruise ships already in use, leveraging their distinctive know-how in the refitting sector and the synergies deriving from belonging to the Somec Group, which in the past has collaborated in the construction of all the ships currently undergoing modernization.
“Thanks to the commitment and dedication of the co-CEO Giancarlo Corazza and his team – declares Oscar Marchetto, Chairman of SOMEC -, we are thrilled to be able to announce the most important orders ever for our Group in the refitting sector, which are potentially extendable in the near future. After the abrupt interruption caused by the pandemic and its impact on shipowners’ budgets, the fleet renewal process is back in full swing and is now accelerating. The entire SOMEC Group is ready to seize the increasingly numerous refitting opportunities that will arise, thanks to its undisputed leadership in the naval glazing sector and stronger ties than ever with all the main global shipowners, built over decades of fruitful collaboration”.
