The KM3NeT-Italy Collaboration has entered the production stage of an 8 tower apparatus that will be deployed at about 100 km away from the Sicily coast. The architecture of the system is based on the NEMO Phase-2 prototype tower that is taking data since the deployment in March 2013. In order to optimize production costs, power consumpion, and usability some components have been re-engineered by taking advantage of the previously gained experience and technological progress. The aim of this contribution is to give an overview of the main features that characterize the new apparatus.
