Supplier Spotlight: Making Waves with Genoa Design

April 11, 2024

Before the first piece of steel is cut, before the keels are laid down, Genoa Design is ensuring the vessel is picture perfect.

The company’s team of designers, engineers, naval architects and other marine experts build the digital ship – a 3D model that is fully detailed and ready to support the construction process. They design every last centimeter of the vessel, down to each and every cable onboard.

Digitalization has been a game-changer for the shipbuilding industry and Genoa has become one of the most sought-after production design firms in the North American shipbuilding market over the past 20 years.

The company is headquartered in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador and has been providing design and 3D modeling services to Seaspan since the inception of the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) twelve years ago.

Watch Gina Pecore, the CEO of Genoa Design International, talk about the impact the NSS has had on her growing team of 200 employees, and their latest NSS project – the Polar Icebreaker, the future flagship of the Canadian Coast Guard’s icebreaking fleet.
