Beyond technical and commercial changes implemented in the Contract (in line with the Engineering and Commercial Change Proposals approved by Italy), the 4th Amendment introduces compulsory updates in the PPA Contract (due to Health and Safety regulations), providing guidelines for Health and Safety at Work (H&S@W) Management along the Ship’s Life Cycle.

To date, the Programme is in a mature phase, since the production of the first five ships is in good progress (2 Light, 2 Light Plus and 1 in Full configuration).

The PPA first of class (in Light configuration), named “Paolo Thaon di Revel” will be delivered in 2021 and the next programme major milestone will be the first sea going of the second PPA, named “Francesco Morosini”, which is expected for October 2020.
