Aida Hyperion Project

​​CUSTOMER: Aida Cruises - Costa Crociere

PROJECT GOAL: Give assistance in developing the project for an innovative cruise ship flying Italian flag and with dual class with Germanischer Lloyd, to be built in Japan at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. 

COUNTRY: Germany

DESCRIPTION: Our activity consists in the classification of the two ships of the project and, in particular, in providing technical support on the application of the alternative design, a methodology that allows the Flag Administration to accept deviations from the prescriptive international safety regulations, on condition that an equivalent level of safety is reached.

For the several deviations, RINA SERVICES​ identified feasible technical solutions, which were agreed with the Owner, the Designer and the Shipyard, and submitted them to the Italian Administration, which eventually approved them.

RINA SERVICES will continue to provide technical assistance in other fields of this project, such as the compliance with the Italian rules on health and sanitation on board. 

SKILLS: Expertise in the classification of passenger ships, technical assistance in innovative design capabilities, risk management, great skill in meeting the client needs, ability in establishing technical dialogue with Flag Administration.
