SCHIFFFAHRT | SHIPPING

SCHIFFFAHRT | SHIPPING © Arnulf Hader interested in buying the renowned facilities. A sales contract could be finalised in the near future. • The Stralsund shipyard with a shipbuilding hall and syncrolift ran short of work following last year’s delivery. The construction of sister ships is not possible anymore since most of the 650 employees lost their jobs with the completion of the »Crystal Endeavour«. Now, the city has good chances to buy the facilities close to the city centre. It is intended to offer the facilities to different companies including ship builders. • The Rostock-Warnemünde based shipyard is specialized on steel work and has already put together some sections for the sister vessel of the »Global Dream«. Chances are low that a new owner for these parts will be found quickly and new jobs for the yard are sought. One possibility is the return to the production of offshore platforms for the wind parks in the Baltic and North Sea. Such platforms were already constructed there a few years ago. • Several cruise operators are said to be interested in the »Global Dream«. It remains most interesting to see what this means for the ship and the Wismar shipyard. It is being speculated that the cash-rich MSC Group could acquire it for the entry into the Chinese cruise market. Operator news Having lost billions of dollars in the pandemic, the big ship operators have survived and hope to return to normal in 2023. The Carnival Group is expecting the return to a positive cashflow in the second quarter 2022 already. During the fourth quarter of 2021 the average turnover per passenger was 4% above 2019 due to higher onboard sales in spite of a low use of capacity of only 58 %. End of 2021 Aida Cruises has taken over the second LNG ship from Meyer Werft, the 5,200 bed »AIDAcosma«. This expansion of capacity allowed the sale of the »AIDAmira«, the oldest vessel in the fleet, following the sale of the »AIDAcara« to a Russian company. In the fleet of Ambassador Cruises »AIDAmira« will be renamed to »Ambition«. The new British brand is overwhelmed by the number of bookings for the 1,400 bed »Ambience« and is even looking for a third ship. Parallel to the crisis of cruise shipping, container ship owners are earning the highest charter and freight rates ever. Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), being present in the container and cruise business at the same time, is interested in buying the majority of ITA Airways, the successor of Alitalia, together with the airline partner Lufthansa. ITA is planned to supplement both companies by carrying cargo and passengers to the cruise ships. © Ulrich Hader »Costa Victoria« delivered 1996 by Bremer Vulkan, scrapped at Aliaga © Ulrich Hader »Monarch« arrived at Aliaga for scrapping in July 2020 40 HANSA – International Maritime Journal 04 | 2022
