This year SAIM supports FAI – Italian Environment Fund through the subscription of Corporate Golden Donor membership program.
With FAI we would like to achieve a great safeguard project, which is also an ambitious cultural challenge: to make Italy a nicer place to live, work and grow our children.
FAI promotes our wonderful landscape and cultural heritage; they are an important asset and an essential resource to invest in, to renovate, develop and enhance our country.
Thanks to support of its members, both private citizens and companies, FAI has safeguarded and managed 57 estates throughout the country for over 40 years.
It saved historical, artistic and beautiful sites from negligence, to reorganize and open them to the public.
Every day FAI works hard to defend and make accessible cultural and natural places, throughout the Italian city, coast and countryside.
It makes an effort to train people toward the knowledge, respect and care of art and nature.
FAI encourages the Community to sustain Civil Society by dynamic participation in territory.
We want a more protected and beautiful Italy.
We work with FAI to build it.
Ascomac Unimot is working hard for the zero-impact boatyard, through environmental awareness. The engine room is an important part of the process.
On 26th September 2017 took place in Genoa a technical workshop focused on power efficiency of the boat; Ascomac President Ruggero Riva e Ascomac Unimot President Massimo Donà led the meeting.
The first speech by Stefano Unali, described the Cummins’ diesel-electric propulsion. Michel Kozulic praised the Qsk 95, the most powerful high-speed.
Francesco Pitardi (Kohler Power Systems) described the plus of parallel systems, with the new controller, PGen and load management.
Massimiliano Cotterchio (ZF) focused on the Smart Command. The Engineer Gallo of the Italian Naval Register, talked about field’s regulations.
Andrea Castagno (Ecospray) described a yacht’s upgrade from Imo Tier 1 to Imo Tier 3. Scrubber and Denox: two important words for nautical sector.
The completely renovated product range makes its debuts at the Genoa Boatshow. Campact dimensions, new design, engines and control panel are the distinctive features. The Dynamica latest range includes four models destined to boats of small and medium size. They deliver peak power ranging form 3 to 7,8 kW.
Saim Marine – www.saim-group.com – introduces Cablemaster CRM63, a new handling and storage system for share power cable. The new model manufactured by the US Glendinning Marine – www.glendinningprods.com – is easy to use and to install.Connection to plug the boat is quickly made by simply pulling out the amount of power cord. When ready to go boating, Cablemaster retracts and stores the power cord on the reel just by pushing the control switch. A patented drive motor mechanism disengages itself when the cable is extended. The new model stores 20 meters of 63 amp power cord in a very small area and is specifically designed for the marine environment. All electrical connections are completely sealed. Voltage available 12 or 24 V, weight 28 kg including cable. Radio control and in-limit switch can be provided on request. features.
Saim Marine presents the V-shaped interceptors manufactured by the Swedish Zipwake – www.zipwake.com . They make the successful Series S even more versatile and highly competitive. V-shaped interceptors for centerline mounting are perfect for filling the gap between twin outboards or stern drives, as well as dual propeller tunnels and pods. The four V-shaped models cover deadrise angles effectively between 11 to 24 degrees. V-shaped centerline mounted interceptors can be included in new installations, or retro-fitted to already installed systems. In combination with Zipwake straight interceptors, or alternatively mounted as a single unit, the V-shaped interceptors further increases flexibility of installation and application in boats with different hull design and engine options. The V-shaped interceptors for centerline mounting contribute to achieve a near full beam interceptor arrangement for optimal lift efficiency, inherently requiring a small blade stroke of just 30 mm. In addition, interceptor actuation is in general significantly faster than conventional trim tabs and the use of interceptors hence enables to rapidly respond to external forces acting on the boat, to maintain the boats desired pitch and roll angles for better performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety.
Ancona, 2017 July, 31st – It has been a complete success the commissioning start-up procedure of the eTRAC stabilization system which took place on board of the new ISA Yacht 37m located at the shipyard in Ancona.
The system has eTRAC 300 actuators with 1,6sqm fins and it’s suitable both for underway and for at anchor stabilization. Pretty easy to install by the shipyard, after the check of connection made by ABT-TRAC engineers, the sea trials and system settings have been made in a few hours.
The new eTRAC product range will soon see the official launch of the eTRAC 250 actuators, developed for fins starting from 0,4sqm and covering the needs of smaller yachts. The new eTRAC 250 will be displayed at Cannes and Genoa boat shows next September on SAIM Marine booths.
The courses regarding ZF electronic controls were held at ZF headquarters in Arco di Trento and have focused on the line Smart Command and the new JMS (Joystick Maneuvering System).
They involved more than 30 specialized technicians from 20 authorized Service Points.
The courses were held by our Service Engineer Marco Oltolina with the support of Davide Mazzotta (SAIM Network Technical Manager) and the ZF Staff.
In addition to a theoretical session, the techinical staff carried out tests in open waters, sailing on board of the ZF Test Boat on the Garda Lake.
The technical training session concerning the new range of marine generators Kohler 12 – 24kW, addressed to Saim Dealer Network – Level 1 has just ended.
The course, which was organized in two sessions from the 7th to 10th of February, involving 40 specialized technicians from 20 companies located throughout the country, has been held by Service Manager SAIM Marco Pezzuolo with the support of the Service Manager KOHLER Francesco Pitardi. The training was focused on the new gen-set range equipped with KOHLER Diesel engines.
In particular, the features of these new series have been studied in details as well as the new soundproofing cabin and the new and revolutionary DEC3500 controller that offers the possibility of parallel operation with multiple generator sets (also single phase) thanks to PGEN® system patented by KOHLER.
In Salzburg (Austria) took place the last Ferretti Group Convergence, the annual conference that brings together several commanders of the Ferretti Group yachts and shuttles.
