The symbolic first cut of spade, carried out by Genting Group Chairman & CEO Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, Rostock’s senior mayor Roland Methling, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s Minister for Economic Affairs Harry Glawe, and MV Werften Chief Operating Officer Holger Tepper, hailed the beginning of the construction of new shipbuilding hall (#11).

The future shipbuilding complex will be up to 24 metres high, 385 metres long and 99 metres wide. Centrepiece will be a semi-automatic panel line, one of the world's most advanced, welding panels of up to 25x16 meters.

The laser-hybrid technique features high quality standards at less heat production. Hall #11 will also house a brand new section building line as well as a section outfitting line.

Facilities' commissioning will be in summer 2018. The Rostock site will manufacture eighty large sections per cruise ship of the 342-metre Global Class.
