Fincantieri and the Krylov State Research Centre of Russia have signed a framework agreement with the aim of jointly developing new projects for technological innovation within the industry.

The agreement, with an initial five-year term, stipulates that a series of initiatives will be undertaken in the partners' respective areas of operation, including joint research and development activities, the realization of new generation products and the provision of services.

For Fincantieri, this agreement not only offers the prospect of technological progress, but also represents an extremely significant achievement in strategic terms. They say they will be able to benefit in many different ways from the Krylov Centre’s unique research & design knowledge of high-tech vessels and offshore engineering structures.

Krylov also stands to benefit from the exchange of knowledge with Fincantieri, which will give the Centre access to its enormous technological and manufacturing know-how gained in the construction and marketing of highly complex vessels.

Giuseppe Bono, Fincantieri CEO: "We consider the agreement with the Krylov Centre, internationally recognized as the most authoritative centre in the field of shipbuilding research, to be strategically important. We have always maintained that technological innovation, an unparalleled driver of development, is essential for dealing with a devastating crisis, like the current one that has changed the global scenario. The partnership with our Russian friends can only help us to progress in this direction, allowing us to improve still further and consolidate the excellence and leadership achieved".
