2015 Mitsubishi shipyard, Nagasaki, Japan: carpeting and outfitting works on cruise ship

SOTI Union have performed a short-term project on Aida cruise ship which is being built at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries shipyard (herinafter MHI) in Nagasaki, Japan. Project scope included: installation of wall and ceiling panels, mounting of carpets and other interior works including furniture assembling.

Some basic facts about the newbuilding :
  • AIDAprima is 300 m length and 37.6 m beam. 124500 GT.
  • The new cruise ship will accommodate up to 3300 passengers.

AIDAprima will be equipped with MHI "know-how" MALS - Mitshubishi air lubrication system. This system creates small bubbles which cover bottom of the vessel like "air carpet", which reduced friction between hull and seawater and as a consequence will save fuel by 7% and corresponding lower emissions.
