Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo has confirmed the opening of its new production facilities in Ameglia, northern Italy. This contemporary development is designed by the Milan-based Lissoni Casal Ribeiro and forms part of a wider strategic project to expand and renovate the company's existing headquarters whilst still maintaining the spirit of the brand.

With the facilities now open for business, the second phase of construction will now begin, in which the original buildings at the Ameglia headquarters - which have been based there since 1999 - will be completely renovated in order to achieve aesthetic uniformity with the new facilities. In addition, the gardens and pedestrian areas connected to the shipyard will also be improved and redesigned.

In addition, Sanlorenzo has also installed 8,000sqm of solar panels in order to ensure that the new facility can be energy self-reliant. Photo: SanLorenzo
