Westeam Announced as New Italian Partner for Floating Dock Refit

Working with our new Italian partner, Westeam Srl, we have secured a floating dock refit project win with the Fincantieri Group, one of the world’s largest shipbuilding groups with twenty shipyards across Europe, the Americas and Asia.

Requiring very short delivery lead times, we were tasked to refit a ballast level gauging system for a floating dock in La Spezia. With a lifting power of 40,000 tons and with 32 ballast/double bottoms, the floating dock had been re-floated after sinking last year and Fincantieri needed the damaged equipment replacing urgently.

Working closely with Westeam we were able to supply our Titanium APT500 sensors and termination modules for all ballast tanks on the 265 metre dock within 2 weeks.

Marine type approved and fully certified for use in Hazardous Areas, our APT500 sensors provide a rugged and reliable solution for harsh marine environments.

We hope this is the first of many projects with Westeam, who have a long-standing reputation for excellent service and support to numerous leading customers in the shipbuilding and offshore industry, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship working with them.
