Fincantieri is one of the world’s oldest and largest shipbuilding groups having built more than 7,000 vessels in over 200 years of maritime history.
World leader in cruise ship construction, Fincantieri is a reference player in other sectors: from naval vessels to cruise ferries; from mega yachts to special, high-tech vessels; from offshore vessels to ship repairs and conversions; from marine equipment and systems (ship propulsion; power generation; stabilization) to diesel engines and industrial turbines.
In the naval field Fincantieri boasts a history of over 2,000 ships built for the Italian Navy and many foreign Navies. The Company is capable of designing and building a wide range of surface vessels, aircraft carriers, frigates, corvettes and patrol vessels in addition to auxiliary vessels and submarines.
Fincantieri’s naval products are well-proven with high operating standards yet the Company has managed to contain costs by availing itself of tried and tested design and construction solutions drawn from the merchant sector. In the naval field Fincantieri relates to customers as Warship Design Authority and Prime Contractor.
Fincantieri is honored to introduce its well-proven designs to the Qatari Navy. Such products can be tailored to fulfill the requirements and expectations of the local Defense Bodies.
A global shipbuilder, Fincantieri delivers its cutting-edge, high-tech products in short time, always on time, within budget at competitive cost levels due to its wide experience and skills in the civilian and naval production lines and provides an extensive after-sales service granting the maintenance support of the vessels locally during their life-cycle.
The Company has an experience in the transfer of technology and is granted the support of staff and structures of the Italian Navy in crew training at operational level as well.
Fincantieri is willing to become a partner of the Qatari Navy and is available to cooperate with local industries in order to establish strong and long-lasting relationships for the development of future naval programs of the Navy.
Headquartered in Trieste (Italy) Fincantieri employs nearly 20,000 people in 21 shipyards in three continents (the Americas, Asia, Europe) and lists revenues of Euro 4 billion (2012).
