70 years for Martini ITALY: Martini Alfredo, leading manufacturer of containers, plastic pallets and floating pontoon systems, celebrated its 70th anniversary on 18th April. The Martini Marinas division was formed in 1973 transferring the company’s proven know-how in plastics technology to the marina sector. Primary components in Martini floating systems including floats, fenders and decking are plastic, and continued focus is placed on R&D and safety to ensure that pontoons are Diversification strengthens business ITALY: Diversification was a key word for the Italian Ingemar Group in 2014 and developments to date this year have confirmed the wisdom of strong investment in R&D and collaborations with Italian institutions such as the University of Padua and Unindustria Treviso. New modular components have boosted the viability of export and also led to a radically new breakwater design (see Products & Services). The company has expanded its visibility in the Middle East and continues to explore the very promising Australian market where a partnership with an important local operator is currently being discussed. Work proceeds swiftly on the reinforced concrete floating elements for Sea City in Kuwait, the second phase of which is scheduled to complete at the end of the year. A total of 1,200 berths for vessels up to 40m will be arranged along 17km of pontoons and fingers, protected by 1,000m of floating breakwaters. Phase two at Porto Montenegro also progresses well and challenging maritime projects in Saudi low maintenance and have a lifespan in excess of 20 years. Since 2002, Martini Alfredo has been led by Glauco Rota, who works with a board of directors chaired by Cristina Martini. Together, they have implemented new investments and new products and enhanced the sales operation. Arabia and Iraq have hiked a diverse order book. Pontoons are currently under construction for several yacht harbours in Italy including Nautico Congianus on the Costa Smeralda, Porto Nogaro in Friuli and Porto Empedocle in Sicily. Ingemar president, Lorenzo Isalberti, commented: “Despite the fact that the Italian yachting industry has not yet recovered from the doldrums of the last few years, our group’s design flexibility and diversified operational capacity has allowed us to identify new commercial opportunities, especially in areas different from traditional ones, and to promote ourselves in new and distant markets where the ‘made in Italy’ quality of our products speaks for itself.” Historic yard under new ownership UK: Hamble Yacht Services (HYS), a boatyard and drystack operation on the Solent in the south of England, is under new ownership. Four partners with plans to bring new investment to the site have purchased the business from the Ancasta Group. Maximum attention will be paid to environmental issues in plans to transform HYS, which is historically one of the premier centres for boat storage, berthing and servicing in the Solent area. The new management will start by improving the general fabric of the yard. There is a programme of refurbishment for the main buildings and improvement to general access and car parking. WORLD NEWS HYS is situated on its own land up river of Port Hamble Marina on the Hamble River and is accessible through the marina site to its own entrance. The yard is adjacent to a conservation area. “We have plans to ‘go green’,” says director Robert Bicket. “We will be making big improvements to the recycling system here, and plan to install solar panels and a rainwater collection system.” SAUDI ARABIA: The KSA Naval base (KFNB) recreational marina project is now fully operational for the use of naval base personnel. It offers 180 berths at a Livart Marine aluminium floating pontoon system, comprising 40 walkways measuring 3 x 12m and 80 fingers at 1.2 x 13.5m. All components were shipped from Livart’s factory in Guangdong, China. www.marinaworld.com - May/June 2015 9
