SPECIAL FOCUS Ingemar: 40 years strong This year started on the crest of a wave for Italian Ingemar Group as it celebrated 40 years of maritime engineering. The evolution in design and manufacture that has taken place over four decades, from small sized floating pontoons to huge floating megayacht docks and the largest floating breakwaters in series production anywhere in the world, cannot fail to impress. Water-focused from the start – Ingemar derives its name from ingeneria marittima, Italian for maritime engineering – the company has grown in strength due to its technical abilities and the variety and flexibility of its product offerings. These assets have also enabled the company to successfully engage in work for other sectors, from services to transport and industry, providing them with special structures. Ingemar has worked for large industrial groups and institutions such as Enel, Edison, Pirelli, Cavi, Agip Petroli, CNR, the Italian Navy and various naval forces in other countries. Close to home The proud offering of floating marinas that are ‘Made in Italy’ has appealed to a significant number of Italian marinas and increasingly to overseas customers who recognise the cachet of Italian design. Around a third of all Italian marinas utilise Ingemar floating structures for all or part of their mooring systems. These include large marinas, with modern infrastructure and high quality services, such as Marina di Capo d’Orlando (Messina); Marina di Fezzano and Porto Mirabello (Le Spezia); Marina del Gargano (Manfredonia); Marina di Villasimius (Cagliari); Porto San Rocco (Trieste); Marina di Loano (Savona); Marina di Stabia (Naples); and Certosa Marina and Marina Sant’Elena (Venice). Looking back, it is worth noting that in the 1990s Ingemar worked on a project developed by architect Renzo Piano to convert the Old Port in Genoa with quaysides, docks and floating wharves. In the early 2000s, the company built a Lorenzo Isalberti: “And even today, after 40 years, we have the enthusiasm and the imagination to conjure up new future opportunities as builders on the water.” new 330m (1,083ft) long floating bridge to link the banks of the Zattere and the Giudecca in Venice for the firework festival of the Festa del Redentore (Feast of the Redeemer). In the field of competitive sport, Ingemar manufactured all the floating structures for the sailing and rowing centres at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens; the mooring piers for the Italian stages of the America’s Cup in Naples and Venice; and for several speedboat championships. Ingemar’s cooperation with the Genoa Boat Show began in 2005, and continues to this day, with the provision of mooring piers, platforms and walkways for one of the largest annual floating displays of luxury boats. And in June 2020, Ingemar pontoons will again play host to boats at the Venice Boat Show, set in the splendid historic Sea City Kuwait has four marinas equipped with over 33km (20.5mi) of Ingemar floating piers. The project has been the company’s most important and most complex challenge in recent years. Above: Ingemar infrastructure is to be found at Marina di Loano, one of Liguria’s most modern tourist ports. Over 1,000 boats from 6 to 77m (20 to 253ft) can moor up. - September/October 2019 17
