Genting HK owned shipyard goes bust

Monday, Jan 10, 2022 0

Genting Hong Kong owned German shipbuilder MV Werften has become insolvent with nearly 2,000 jobs at risk.

Germany blamed Genting as it turned down an aid package offered by Germany’s federal government, Economy Minister Robert Habeck said.

The MV Werften shipyard is based in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Trading of Genting Hong Kong’s shares were suspended on Friday at the company’s request.

Genting Hong Kong is the parent of luxury line Crystal Cruises, as well as Asia based Dream Cruises and Star Cruises.

The shipyard was constructing a new mega cruise liner for Dream Cruises, which has been delayed by pandemic curbs and financial constraints.
