SINGAPORE (Dec 17): Sembcorp Marine (Sembmarine) today announced the completion of repair work on Costa Fortuna, a 1,358-cabin vessel operated by Costa Crociere which sailed away from Sembmarine’s Admiralty Yard yesterday.

This marks the company’s 10th and final cruise ship project delivery for 2018.

Other luxury liners that underwent repairs and upgrades at Sembmarine’s facilities over the past 12 months include vessels from the group’s long-term partners Carnival Cruises, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, along with new customer, Norweigian Cruise Line.

Further, Sembmarine says it has already confirmed 13 cruise ship repair and upgrade jobs for 2019, including projects from companies such as Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Star Cruises and Star Clippers Monaco.

The company will also manage the turnkey upgrade of Zen Cruises’ first upmarket cruise liner in India, Pacific Jewel.

All of the projects secured so far are slated to take place at Sembcorp Marine’s Tuas Boulevard and Admiralty yards, both equipped with large and deep-drafted dry docks ideal for mega-size cruise vessels.

“We are very pleased to strengthen our track record in this niche market with 10 more successful projects, and at the same time contribute to Singapore’s progress as a leading cruise hub by providing reliable services to the cruise liners calling here,” says Alvin Gan, head of repairs & upgrades at Sembmarine.

“Given the continued strong growth of cruise tourism, especially in Asia, Sembcorp Marine is well positioned to capitalise on the boom with our proven capabilities and facilities,” he adds.

As at 1.05pm, shares in Sembmarine are trading 2 cents higher at $1.61.
