One of Australia’s wealthiest males, Clive Palmer, has unveiled plans for a 21st century model of the Titanic to be built-in China, using its first expedition from England to New York set for 2016. Palmer, a self-made mining billionaire, said he’s commissioned state-owned Chinese organization CSC Jinling Shipyard to develop Titanic II with exactly the same dimensions as its predecessor. ‘It can be just as luxurious as the original Titanic but of course it will have state-of-the-art 21st century technology and the latest navigation and security systems,’ Palmer explained in an assertion, released on Monday. ‘Titanic II will travel in the northern hemisphere and her maiden trip from England to North America is scheduled for late 2016. ‘We have asked the Chinese navy to carry Titanic II on its maiden voyage to New York ‘. His announcement comes just months after the 100th anniversary of the wreckage of Titanic, which went down on April 15, 1912 after striking an iceberg on its maiden trip from Southampton to NY. Palmer said the new ship would have been a tribute to the spirit of the women and men who done the original. ‘These people produced work that’s still marveled at more than 100 years later and we want that heart to continue for another 100 years,’ he explained. Titanic was commissioned by White Star Line and was the biggest ship in the world at the time. Palmer said he has established his own transport firm, Blue Star Line, with the new vessel having the same dimensions as its predecessor, with 840 rooms and nine units.
