Ship interior supplier, NIT is expanding its business operations in Germany through an agreement with shipbuilder MV Werften's on the first interior turnkey deal for Dream Cruises' 204,000gt Global class series.


NIT will design and install the main passenger staircase areas for the two new ships, designed for the Asian cruise markets and scheduled to sail on their maiden voyages from Wismar in 2020 and 2021.

With a length of 342mtr and a passenger capacity up to 9,500, the Global class ships will be the biggest cruise ships ever built in Germany.

Both vessels have two large passenger staircase areas, the total area of which is almost 12,000sq mtr.

In addition to the visual interiors, NIT will also deliver electrical installations and piping for these areas.

'We are delighted to announce this new partnership with MV Werften,' says Jari Suominen, ceo of NIT.

'Our new customer sees high value in the ambition and experience of our teams and we certainly do our best to exceed their expectations.'

From its home base in Piikkiö, Finland NIT is working with leading shipbuilders and provided interior areas for more than 50 large vessels, specialising in challenging areas such as staircases, restaurants, nightclubs and spas.

The success of the Global class project will strengthen the story of European shipbuilding, says Suominen. 'Not only are we building great ships together – we are also exploring exciting concepts and unlocking new opportunities for market expansion.'
