About Builders
 Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino - St. Triestino - STT - Austria Werft 1916-1918, Trieste
Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino (STT) was a private shipbuilding company based in Trieste from the mid-19th to early 20th century, and the most important naval shipbuilding firm of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

During WWI, between 1916-1918, STT was named Austria Werft.

After WWI, Trieste was ceded to Italy and the firm continued building vessels for Italy.

In 1929 STT merged with Cantieri Navale Triestino to form Cantieri Riuniti dell' Adriatico (CRDA). CRDA Trieste became part of the Fincantieri group in 1984.
