Fincantieri Marine Group LLC, the U.S. subsidiary of Italy’s shipbuilding giant FINCANTIERI S.p.A., and Gibbs & Cox, Inc., the independent naval engineering and design firm in North America, announced a joint strategic research and development initiative in the ship and vessel design arena.
The initiative will focus on future ship and vessel concepts with applications within the United States as well as the international marketplace. It will investigate means of developing innovative ship concepts with improved affordability and production efficiency features.
Giuseppe Bono, CEO of FINCANTIERI, said, “Bringing together FINCANTIERI and Gibbs & Cox’s complementary skills and expertise will offer innovative capabilities to the U.S. market. Our aim is to develop concepts that completely fulfill the evolving needs of the customer while accounting for producibility considerations early in the design stage.”
