On February 24, the first large-scale cruise ship H1508 prefabricated cabin production workshop of Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding started. Wang Qi, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding, Chen Gang, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee and General Manager, Zhou Qi, Deputy General Manager, Liu Jianfeng, Chief Technologist, Fabrizio Ferri, CEO of Fincantieri (China), and the shipowner, CSSC Fincantieri (China). and cabin general contractors attended the groundbreaking ceremony, which was presided over by the Interior Engineering Department.
The total area of the large cruise cabin prefabrication workshop is about 12,000 m2. As a key component of cruise ship construction, cabins are numerous, difficult, and wide in the interface. Completing the prefabricated cabins in the factory ahead of time and then boarding the ship is the mainstream mode of cruise ship construction in the world, which can effectively improve the construction efficiency and quality, and greatly reduce the risk of material sticking on board. At present, the production line has been set up and debugged, the cabin production materials and staff are all in place, and the production stage is about to begin.
At the groundbreaking ceremony, Fabrizio Ferri extended his heartfelt thanks to the project participants such as Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding and the general contractor of the cabin for their joint efforts and sincere cooperation. The start of the prefabricated cabin workshop is an important milestone in the construction of the large cruise ship H1508, which opened the prelude to the peak period of cabin construction. It is hoped that the shipyard and the general contractor will continue to treat each other sincerely and work together.
Wang Qi thanked all the partners for their contributions. He pointed out that the official launch of the cabin prefabrication workshop represented a new stage for the interior decoration of H1508, and also marked a new level of cooperation between China Shipbuilding Corporation and Fincantieri Group. We hope that both parties will work together with the goal of the smooth delivery of H1508 to jointly tackle difficulties and jointly contribute to the high-quality development of China’s cruise industry.
Assistant General Manager Sun Xiangdong, Chen Jianwei, Deputy Chief Engineer Guo Yong, Director Wu Youqi, Jiang Yina, and the principals of various departments attended the ceremony together.
