Royal Bodewes, one of the leading shipbuilding yards in Northern Europe, has awarded RINA a contract for plan approval, supervision during the construction, and classification of seven new ships, scheduled for staged delivery from October 2022 onwards. The 5267 GT vessels, which are for the large Irish dry cargo operator Arklow Shipping, will be built in Hoogezand in the Netherlands.
Pino Spadafora, Marine Commercial Senior Director at RINA, said: “This is an important contract and one which signals favourable times for shipping in Northern Europe. The contract is fixed for seven vessels. As part of our ongoing digitalization program, we will make our most recent plan approval platform available to the shipyard for an increased cooperative approach and a much more efficient approval process”.
The keel laying was done in December 2020. The complete design package with all drawings, calculations and manuals will be approved by RINA with the design review period over the first half of 2021. Following delivery of the first vessel in the 4th Quarter of 2022, subsequent ships are scheduled every three to four months.
Spadafora concluded: “Royal Bodewes is known for its high-quality products and we are delighted to be working with them on this project. This contract highlights, once again, the appreciation of North European marine industry for the RINA’s “make it sure, make it simple” approach”.
RINA provides a wide range of services across the Energy, Marine, Certification, Transport & Infrastructure and Industry sectors. With expected net revenues in 2020 of 485 million Euros, over 3,900 employees and 200 offices in 70 countries worldwide, RINA is a member of key international organizations and an important contributor to the development of new legislative standards.
