STX France has received an order from Hapag Lloyd Cruises, a third-party proprietary company outside the German travel group TUI Group, to build a luxury cruise ship, the ‘Europa 2’, for delivery in 2013.

The newbuilding, which will complement the Europa in the fleet of German cruise operator Hapag Lloyd Cruises, will be designed and built according to latest international regulations. For the Saint-Nazaire shipyard in France this new contract represents about 2.5 million working hours. Construction will start in September 2011.

“We are proud to be chosen to build the new cruise liner in our Saint-Nazaire shipyard and we are delighted to contribute to the expansion of the luxury cruise activities of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises”, says Jacques Hardelay, general manager of STX France.

Presently the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet includes four cruise ships: the luxury Europa, the expedition ships Hanseatic and Bremen and the Columbus in the premium segment.
