The company “Cardama” is the largest shipyard in Spain. Its CEO, Mario Cardama, continues the work of his great-great-grandfather, who founded the company more than 100 years ago. In addition to the shipbuilding business, the company implements public projects. One of the current ideas for implementation is the creation of an “underwater world” with the possibility of training. The project is implemented in cooperation with the University of Vigo. We would like to remind you that “Cardama” helps the crew of the sailing trimaran “Russian Ocean Way” to carry out a serious modification of the vessel at the shipyard before throwing it across the Atlantic.
