The industry has highlighted (especially in the LeaderSHIP2015 report) that securing financing for the construction phase (pre-delivery) is crucial for shipbuilding projects. A shipyard’s annual production value usually exceeds its own value and a partly-built ship is not recognised as a capital asset.
The study on a shipbuilding pre-delivery guarantee scheme is therefore expected to analyse the current situation and European industries' needs, and to develop a proposal for a comprehensive and feasible European scheme.
