Fincantieri Dedicates Navy Frigate Facility
Leaders from Fincantieri Marinette Marine, the U.S. Navy and Wisconsin-based Miron Construction dedicated a new facility at Fincantieri’s Marinette, Wis., shipyard with a small ceremony March 8. Fincantieri received a contract in 2020 that could be worth up to $5.5 billion to design and build the Navy’s newest class of ships, the Constellation-class guided-missile frigates.
Employees and guests gathered to open the newest building at the Marinette shipyard, Building 35, where plates of raw steel begin the journey to become a U.S. warship. The 32,000-square-foot building is connected to a new panel line where steel will be prepared, marked, cut and welded on an automated assembly line complete with state-of-the-art robotic welders.
