Three Costa’s Cruise Ships Gathered for Repair and Maintenance at Koyagi Plant, Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works

Tokyo, February 25, 2020 – Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, has received orders from Costa Crociere S.p.A.* for repairs and maintenance works to its three cruise vessels COSTA ATLANTICA, COSTA VENEZIA and COSTA SERENA.
COSTA ATLANTICA was dry-docked for the periodical repair and maintenance work on February 20, while COSTA VENEZIA and COSTA SERENA were moored at quays for regular maintenances on February 21 and 22 respectively. Prevention of COVID-19 virus infection has been the highest priority issue among Costa, Mitsubishi and the relevant Japanese authorities. All the three vessels were legitimately quarantined by the local Quarantine Branch when entering Japan, and the repairs and maintenance works are carried out under the strict control of the infection prevention procedures of both Costa and Mitsubishi.
Mitsubishi Shipbuilding will continue to serve the customer needs while taking all possible measures against the infection.
