Only recently, after a long and hard fought procedure, Viroc International Limited was awarded the single largest ever contract issued by the Armed Forces of Malta. The historic relationship between CANTIERE NAVALE VITTORIA SPA and Viroc International Limited was at the forefront of this collaboration, with our Principals once again placing their full trust in the Company and its extensive experience in the field. The Company beat eleven other bidders and shipyards to win this project, amongst which were some of the biggest shipyards in the world, thus making this result even more memorable and historic.
