Sembmarine gets first polar expedition cruise ship design contract

The project is scheduled for completion by the third quarter of 2020.

Sembcorp Marine subsidiary LMG Marin got its first polar expedition cruise ship design contract signed with Brodosplit Shipyard of Croatia. 

According to an announcement, the ship will be constructed for Quark Expeditions®, which specialises in expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic aboard purpose-built expedition vessels. It is scheduled for completion by the third quarter of 2020.

LMG Marin will deliver a basic design package in the contract with Brodosplit Shipyard.

The polar expedition cruise ship, designated LMG 200-PCS, will be 128 metres in length. It has a capacity of 200 passengers and 116 crew members. The vessel is tailored for operations in polar and distant regions and will be built according to DNV-GL polar class PC(6) standard.

The cruise vessel also features a top deck with infrastructure for two helicopters, cabins with large windows or private balconies, a spa and wellness area, and two restaurants.

LMG Marin is a fully-owned subsidiary of the Sembmarine since 2016. It originated several key designs that are now part of the Sembmarine's portfolio of engineering solutions such as the Espadon drillships under construction for Transocean and the Floating Storage and Offloading vessel (FSO) Ailsa recently delivered to TOTAL for deployment in the harsh-environment UK North Sea.
