Telling Fincantieri’s story in Romania
You have to see in order to believe. To see what it means to build a ship ready for a memorable cruise or a ship ready to defend us when needed. That’s why we went to visit Fincantieri’s shipyards in Italy and, of course, in Romania – in Braila and Tulcea.
Four shipyards, four great experiences for a group of journalists interested and curious to see “how is made”. In Italy they were speechless when arriving right under the hull of a frigate that was under construction in Riva Trigoso shipyard. In Muggiano shipyard, we witnessed together the launching ceremony of the LSS Vulcano, an impressive military ship built for the Italian Navy.
In Romania, we were proud to see two shipyards working at full capacity. Fincantieri owns Vard Tulcea and Vard Braila where various kinds of vessels are built, cruise and expedition ships included.
We looked astonished how the Goliath crane can move around huge ship sections – carefully and with maximum precision. This crane is the giant of the yard keeping an eye on everything and everybody. The name says it all: it’s Goliath!
