Castoldi Waterjets integrated with Zipwake interceptors for maximum efficiency and performance
SAIM, Zipwake interceptor distributor in Italy, will deliver Zipwake Series E to Castoldi for their waterjets. Jet tender and waterjet expert Castoldi is no stranger to cutting edge technology. Now thanks to SAIM it has entered into collaboration with the Swedish top interceptor manufacturer to make its waterjets the best on the market for efficiency and performance.
The collaboration with SAIM, the Italian distributor for Zipwake interceptors, enables Castoldi Turbodrive 490HCT and Turbodrive 600 HCT waterjets to arrive readily equipped with the latest generation interceptors.
One of the primary reasons for using a waterjet propulsion system is to improve the performance of the vessel. The main job of the interceptor is to modify the trim of the boat in order to navigate in a more effective way, according to the speed of the vessel and the sea-state.
Giacomo Castoldi, Castoldi General Manager, said “This collaboration brings two companies together both with a reputation for performance and efficiency with a high standard of design and engineering. Integrating the Zipwake interceptor provides a superior product and greater options for our customers.”
Marco Donà, SAIM CEO, commented: “we are proud to provide Castoldi with Zipwake interceptors, we have been distributing since long time on the Italian market. The decision of joining our experience together developed very quickly and confirms SAIM ongoing interest in working with reliable partners. We are sure Zipwake will be able to satisfy a number of requirements for Castoldi customers”.
The reason behind offering interceptors in addition to its waterjet is that interceptors are often used in the hi-performance professional market, which is mainly where Castoldi operates, having them readily integrated in the propulsion can be great solution for both vessel designers and shipyards.
