Cantiere Navale Vittoria participated in the Forum of the Mediterranean Coast Guard Functions
As historical partner of the Italian Coast Guard, Cantiere Navale Vittoria participated in the Forum of the Mediterranean Coast Guard Functions (MedCGFF) which was held, from 30 September to 1 October, at the Congress Center of the Naples Maritime Station.
The event, organized by the Italian Coast Guard on a mandate from the Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) of the European Commission which co-financed the project, aims to facilitate international cooperation on a wide range of issues such as the safety of maritime transport and the protection of the marine environment by seeking solutions to problems common to the various participating countries, sharing skills and best practices.
During the forum Massimo Duò, Vice President of the Vittoria Shipyard, and Luigi Chinappi, Commercial Director of the Shipyard, presented the latest company news to various international delegations, outlining the future business plans of the Vittoria company. At the center of attention, the latest buildings built for the Maltese Armed Forces, the Greek Coast Guard, the Italian Guardia di Finanza and for the Italian Coast Guard.
Luigi Chinappi, Commercial Director of Cantiere Navale Vittoria commented the participation in the two Neapolitan days as follows: “We thank the Italian Coast Guard and Admiral Nicola Carlone for the opportunity we have been granted to make the company known and convey our vision company to stakeholders and institutions present. The topics touched upon in the various interventions on water control, protection of the marine environment, sustainability and coordination of the Coast Guard are a wealth of knowledge that will certainly reverberate on our boats. The past year has proved to be important for strengthening relations with the Port Authority corps to which we have delivered the CP300 units. In the coming months, however, we will begin construction, in joint venture with Fincantieri, of the Multirole Offshore Unit that will be able to respond to the growing operational needs of the Coast Guard, from rescue at sea to safety of navigation, from protecting the marine environment to of fish resources “.
The forum was promoted in conjunction with Naples Shipping Week: a plan of cultural events open to the entire Italian and international shipping community, dedicated to the “culture of the sea” with the contribution of speakers from the business, scientific and academic world.
