In early August this year, the ground-breaking took place for MV-Werften’s new fabrication hall complex in Rostock, on Germany’s Baltic Sea coast. The new complex is being built at a cost of approximately 80 million euro. “This is MV-Werften‘s largest single investment of recent years - by some distance”, states the company’s spokesman, Stefan Sprunk. Inros Lackner is responsible, in the role of General Planner, for the planning and design of the modern shipbuilding hall of area 21,000 m2 and length 400 m, which will be shipbuilder’s “production heart for Global Class ships”. The ships, of length 342 m, will carry more than 5,000 cruise passengers, and will be the largest ships ever built in the north-east of Germany. In the new hall, welding and fabrication robots will fabricate the steel mid-sections, of length 220 m, for the enormous cruise liners. Production is expected to commence in the new halls in 2018.
