Passenger and cargo shipping company Blue Star Line has contracted Deltamarin to continue with the design of Titanic II. The contract covers activities and tasks for the design process, consultancy and project management services.
Deltamarin will provide Blue Star Line with outline design services including finalizing and modifying the existing design to comply with the latest rules and regulations. These include the SOLAS 2020 requirements and the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).
Deltamarin will also further develop the design together with the selected yard and Blue Star Line, and handle the management of consultations with potential shipyards.
Blue Star Line Chairman Clive Palmer said Deltamarin was the perfect choice for the Titanic II project. “We are delighted that Deltamarin – one of the world’s leading ship design companies – will once again be working on Titanic II,’’ Palmer said.
“Deltamarin was one of the first global companies to come aboard when Titanic II was originally launched in 2012 and we are looking forward to continuing our excellent relationship,” Clive added.
Kristian Knaapi, Head of Sales and Marketing at Deltamarin said the project team members were excited to continue executing Deltamarin’s core business on Titanic II.
“We look forward to developing the highest level of design for a challenging project. It is a great honour to be part of the history in supporting Blue Star Line in this one-of-a-kind project, the Titanic II,” Knaapi said.
