What will the first Chinese cruise ship to build Fincantieri look like (don't tell Macron)

Fincantieri's collaboration with China sets sail.

The start of dock works and the coin ceremony of the first cruise ship that Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co. Ltd (Sws) – subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (Cssc), the largest conglomerate, were held today at the Shanghai shipyard. Chinese shipbuilding industry – is building for Cssc Carnival Cruise Shipping Limited, the joint venture between Carnival Corporation and Cssc which will also take care of the unit.

The ship is part of the agreements signed in 2017 by Fincantieri, China State Shipbuilding Corporation (Cssc) and Carnival Corporation & plc, worth $ 1.5 billion for the construction of two cruise ships, and an additional four as an option, which they will be the first units of this kind ever made in China for the Chinese market.

As stated in today 's press release from the Trieste shipbuilding group, "the joint venture set up by Fincantieri and Cssc Cruise Technology Development Co. Ltd (CCTD) will license Sws the technological platform and a series of technical services, including project management, supply chain management and sales of key systems and components. The onboard design will be specially customized according to the specific tastes of Chinese customers ".

"The progress of the production phase in full compliance with the timetable is an excellent signal for the cruise industry in China and confirms the great commitment made by Fincantieri, Cssc and the Carnival group in such a difficult moment as the one that we are living ". This is how Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri commented.

All the details.


The new ship, scheduled for delivery in 2023, will have the capacity to accommodate approximately 4,250 passengers on board, as well as 1,400 crew members. As we said, this is the first cruise ship built in China for the Chinese market.


In addition, Marine Interiors, a subsidiary of Fincantieri and an international player in the design and construction of public areas, catering areas and windows, has signed a supply contract with Sws for approximately 2,800 cabins for the first unit of the program. "To demonstrate its validity of Fincantieri's initial vision of overseeing and enhancing the supply chain. The involvement of Marine Interiors, in fact, will have positive repercussions for the Italian territory, in which the company is rooted, through the supply of materials and components that will subsequently be installed in China, under the supervision of Fincantieri China ”. It is stated in the note of the group.


In August 2018 Fincantieri, the shipbuilding group controlled by Fintecna-Cdp-Tesoro, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with China State Shipbuilding Corporation (Cssc) for the expansion of the industrial cooperation already in place between the two groups to all segments of merchant shipbuilding.


In fact, in February 2017, Fincantieri, Cssc and Carnival Corporation had entered into a binding agreement worth 1.5 billion dollars for the construction of two cruise ships at the Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (Sws) shipyard, and an additional four as an option. The group has also signed a letter of intent (LOI) with CSSC and with the Baoshan district of the city of Shanghai for the development of the supply chain dedicated to cruise, but also shipbuilding and maritime activities, and an exclusive cooperation agreement in the field of of ship repairs and conversions with Huarun Dadong Dockyard (HRDD), one of the major Chinese shipyards specialized in repair and refitting , aimed at serving cruise ships based in China.


As the world's largest market for overseas tourism, the 142 million travelers from China spent an estimated $ 258 billion in 2017, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). By comparison, China's cruise industry only served around 2.5 million tourists a year in 2017, accounting for less than 2% of the total.

According to the Chinese Ministry of Transport , the Chinese cruise market has an estimated growth potential of 8-10 million in 2030 (from 1 million in 2015) with a trend that if confirmed would lead it to become the first in the world.

China, therefore, represents a very significant opportunity for the cruise industry, still presenting a low penetration rate and with long-term projections that foresee the growth of tourism, and which should lead the country to become the largest cruise market. in the world.


But it is precisely the collaboration of Fincantieri with China that risks shaking the operation of the Italian group in the French yards. The sale of Chantiers de l'Atlantique (formerly Stx France of which 84.3% in the hands of the French state) to Fincantieri was postponed to the end of the year.

On October 31, the Trieste group's offer to buy back the Saint-Nazaire shipyards expired. Paris's concern over the sale of the former STX is caused by the risks of technology transfers to China, partner of the potential buyer. The chairman of the Economic Affairs Committee of the French Senate has warned about the risks for France. “This future acquisition could offer a gateway to its more dangerous competitor, the Chinese giant China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC). Since 2016, a partnership with the latter has in fact allowed Fincantieri to build liners directly on its shipyards in Shanghai, on behalf of American Carnival, the world's leading cruise company. Therefore, a transfer of technologies, civil but also military, to Asia is to be feared ”.

Not only that, Fincantieri's offer for the former Stx is also awaiting (still) the approval of the EU antitrust. In fact, last October the European Commission launched an in-depth investigation to evaluate the operation in light of the EU merger regulation.
