The assembly yard practices at STX Europe's Cruise & Ferries shipyards allow for the shortest possible throughput times, excellent quality and overall economy. Advanced project management, construction supervision, highly skilled personnel and the yards' large network of advanced suppliers are all vital for successful, on-time deliveries of large, sophisticated vessels.
STX Europe has its own company that manufactures and installs well designed and attractive prefabricated cabins, bathrooms and public areas for all types of passenger ships. Our modular, prefabrication solutions cut newbuilding times and make passenger accommodations less costly to build and maintain.
On-time deliveries, impeccable details and outstanding performance are the result of shipyards' streamlined production processes.
HSE - Health, Safety and Environment
There are strict rules for passenger ship safety that must be followed in the design work. The goal for passenger vessels is that "the ship itself is its best lifeboat". This means that in case of casualty both passengers and crew can stay safely onboard as the ship proceeds to port. But for us safety means more.
Safety, reliability and environmental friendliness are matters of course in shipbuilding. HSE matters are very important also from the customers' point of view. Marketing of the new ship starts immediately after signing the shipbuilding contract, and everything what happens in each phase of the project will be public in the media. Accordingly, we want to protect our customers from any unfavourable publicity by doing our best to avoid any casualties or environmental damage during the process. We have an ambitious goal of "zero incidents" in HSE matters. We are proactive in our HSE work and do not "walk away" when we see breaches of HSE rules - we care.
