Viking Ocean Cruises, subsidiary corporation of Viking River Cruises, two fleeting ships have signed with Fincantieri an agreement for the construction of others more an option for others two, than they will join at the beginning to the two ships from cruise ordered to the Italian navalmeccanico group of the slid summer ( of the 12 July 2012). Fincantieri has specified that the new contract will be perfected when all will be defined the conditions technical-financial institutions.
The new ships will be twin of the two units already ordered this year and, online with the strategy of Viking focused on the exclusive feature of the travel and the resorts reached during the cruise, these units of 48.000 tons of tonnage will be smaller regarding the current standards.
Fincantieri has announced that the agreement previews also a series of combined initiatives for the study of the propulsion to LNG (which liquified natural gas).
“This ulterior order - it has commented the chairman of Viking, Torstein Hagen - testifies how much has been hard the interest provoked from our intuition to on board conceive the oceanic cruise like exclusive travel of ships of small dimensions and from the great added value. We are very enthusiastic to have Fincantieri like partner, from the moment that we work in order to bring back the destination to the center of the cruise”.

“We are many satisfying to intensify the collaboration with Viking - has declared the managing director of Fincantieri, Giuseppe Bono - and this new agreement demonstrates our ability to compete on the market. We have made our part and we wish that the prelocated institutions in order to support the export can continue to support also those of this field, so strategic for the national economy. We also wish - it has added to Bono - that the union and the workers are felt trusting for the future, giving the maximum engagement so that our society can be more and more competitive. Without this determination the flattering reached results this year, that is to say substantially the acquisition of all the new ships from ordered cruise prototype in 2012, difficultly could be maintained”.
