Fincantieri is one of the world’s largest shipbuilders with 18 shipyards on four continents employing nearly 20,000 shipbuilding professionals. Since its founding in 1790, the company has designed and built more than 7,000 vessels for commercial and government clients.
The company’s portfolio includes articulated tug barges, barges, cruise ships, dredges, ferries, offshore support vessels, and platform supply vessels.
Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding (FBS) has also risen to the challenge of creating bunkering/transportation solutions to meet the need for clean and competitively priced fuel alternatives. FBS is currently building a 5,400-cubic-metre (190,700-cubic-foot) bunker barge for LNG-fueled cruise ships currently being constructed in Europe for Florida-Caribbean itineraries. The bunker barge is the first step in a strategy to establish a complete platform of LNG transport solutions for U.S. customers.
The FBS team of repair professionals is among the industry’s most experienced and carries out hull repairs and painting, electrical, piping and mechanical systems repairs, scrubber installations, as well as engine repairs, inspections and maintenance. Experts at managing critical time-sensitive deadlines, these professionals take pride in their consistent record for on-time delivery of the repair and maintenance of vessels on the Great Lakes.
FBS also has decades of experience in both small and complex vessel conversions that involve everything from design and engineering to determining vessel dimensions and capacities, as well vessel repurposing or power plant conversions. The in-house design and construction staff work closely with customers to meet each of their critical needs and to ensure that classification society requirements are met or exceeded.
FBS is an ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certified facility. The company always strives to be the shipbuilder of choice in safety, quality, value and dependability by offering innovative and competitive maritime solutions tailored to customer needs.
Fincantieri counts 3 shipyards in the Green Marine environmental certification program: Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding, Fincantieri ACE Marine and Fincantieri Marinette Marine.
