(Press Release)
Wednesday, February 29, 2012

UK -  QinetiQ, has provided Italian ship builder Fincantieri with specialist design and advisory services in support of the development of an on-board escape system for the Italian Navy’s newest submarines.
Fincantieri is one of the largest groups in the world in the design and construction of merchant and naval vessels. The company has a global network of 10 shipyards, two design centres, a naval research centre and two production sites dedicated to the manufacturing of systems and mechanical components. 
QinetiQ was engaged at the very beginning of the new submarine construction project conducting a feasibility study, providing advice, system and component evaluation, design and sea trails support. Fincantieri also made extensive use of QinetiQ’s facilities including its unique and specialised SMERAS equipment and bespoke evaluation software.
“Throughout the project, we found QinetiQ very easy to work and communicate with. They were responsive and worked efficiently and effectively. The combination of their highly knowledgeable engineers and technical consultants coupled with their extensive testing facilities more than met our needs and exceeded our expectations. We believe that QinetiQ helped us to save nearly four months over the lifetime of the project. We will definitely be working with them again,” commented Davide Mioni, Project Engineer, Platform Subsystems, Fincantieri.
