KSRC finds business partner in Italy

29 july 2013

Fincantieri, one of the global shipbuilding leaders, and KSRC, one of the flagship centres in shipbuilding studies, signed basic agreement for joint development of new innovative projects.

The Agreement with initial validity period of 5 years stipulates that the partners will launch a number of initiatives in corresponding fields, including joint research and development projects, implementation of new-generation products and rendering of services.

For Fincantieri this agreement is not only the way to technological advance but also a very important strategic achievement. Really, unique research and test facilities of the KSRC might be extremely useful for the Italian company in developing most efficient ships and marine structures complying with the most demanding global standards.

KSRC, in its turn, will also benefit from the cooperation and knowledge exchange with Fincantieri, because it provides access to the huge stock of technical and production know how regarding construction and market promotion of sophisticated ships.

Joint work of the two companies will open a new page in the history of special shipbuilding and Russian-Italian cooperation. The first joint development project for a sophisticated ship will be identified in the nearest future.

Guiseppe Bono, President of Fincantieri: «We think that the agreement with KSRC, most influential globally recognized shipbuilding research centre is a strategic decision. We are convinced that technical innovations, as key driver of progress, are the most important tool to resist destructive crisis effects similar to those that have resulted in ongoing changes of global scenario. The cooperation with our Russian colleagues might contribute to our advance in this field and foster further development and maintaining of leadership and high quality of work.

Andrey Dutov, Director General of the KSRC: «Hopefully, the cooperation between other companies based on unique engineering and design experience and state-of-the-art research facilities of the KSRC, combined with profound experience of Fincantieri in design and construction of various marine structures will provide a synergic effect in development of modern high-tech marine structures and result in their successful sales at the global shipbuilding market.
