INTERMARINE (IMMSI GROUP): MINESWEEPER DELIVERED TO A LEADING NAVY IN THE MEDITERRANEAN
Work on the first vessel completed on schedule, and in compliance with the world’s top quality standards
Sarzana, 21 June 2017 – Intermarine, a subsidiary of the Immsi S.p.A. industrial group, said it had
The vessel, which was delivered on schedule, is the first unit of a larger order, and complies with the highest quality standards.
Intermarine is one of the world’s leading designers, constructors and fitters of special military vessels such as minesweepers, which have highly specific operating requirements. Military minesweepers are extremely advanced vessels requiring specialised competences at every design and construction stage, and are the result of a long process by which the basic Intermarine project is perfected and adapted to the specific needs of the individual customer.
An Intermarine minesweeper has a 52.5 metre length and 10 metre beam (for a total displacement of approximately 700 metric tons) and is powered by two diesel engines for a top speed of between 13 and
16 knots. The structure – including the hull – is built using the unstiffened monocoque single skin construction technique, with a fibreglass developed specifically for this type of project. The superstructures, realised in a sandwich configuration consisting of two fibreglass and carbon fibre layers encasing a balsa core, are constructed with the resin infusion process.
Confirming its international leadership in this particular sector of defence vessels, Intermarine has already built 42 minesweepers, in 9 different configurations, for the navies of 8 countries, including the USA, Australia and Italy.
Intermarine closed the first quarter of 2017 with Value of Production of 22.3 million euro, up 137.3% (+12.9 million euro) compared with the year-earlier period, Ebitda of 4.8 million euro, Ebit of 4.2 million euro and made a return to profit, with net profit of 2.1 million euro.
