The fine weather hastened the finalization of the new marinas and allowed Ingemar to draw a picture of the current year.
The 2018 performance appears particularly positive for the Italian maritime engineering group, which has headquarters in Milan and production units in Casale sul Sile near Venice, which saw the start of major orders for the construction of new tourist landings and the expansion or modernization of existing sites.
More important assignments and new expanding markets, together with the high quality of the materials used and manufactured products, have ensured that the Group has firmly maintained its position in the list of the world’s top-players in the sector: an all-Italian pride developed between ‘la Madonnina’ and the industrious Northeast.
Work has recently been completed at
work in the site area adjacent to the water spaces at Pagliari Pier, where Ingemar has temporarily relocated production of its most important floating breakers in terms of size, weight and displacement. A distinctive and qualifying feature of the new marina, in fact, are precisely the wave breakers, with a length of about 450m and exceptional dimensions (modules of 20x10x2.4m. and 20x8x2.40 weighing 180 and 150 tons!), which, along the lines of what was recently realized for a maxi shipyard in Kuwait, were produced directly near the place of use: a system that allowed significant production economies, acceleration of time and reduction of the incidence of energy consumption and polluting emissions for handling and transport activities.
At the Ingemar plant in Casale sul Sile, on the other hand, production of indoor concrete mooring docks and decks made of fine exotic woods has continued unabated and has already exceeded the 60 percent mark. When completed, a total of about 1,400 m will be installed. linear of piers, capable of accommodating more than 850 vessels.
In Friuli, on the other hand, in Monfalcone, Ingemar is fast-tracking two major interventions with major expansions for the Timavo Sailing Club and the Naval League Monfalcone: two long-standing customers of Ingemar, concession neighbors, and with directives determined to support the Municipal Land Use Plan that included the possibility of concession expansions. More than 4 years ago, the side-by-side work between the two Associations and Ingemar began, and the lay-out plans have been refined over time in search of the right balance between exploitation of the water space, specific needs of the members, and the identification of Ingemar products best suited for the purpose.
In the end, the Group’s flexibility of intervention once again made the difference, and given the variety of elements provided, the new landings almost resemble an open-air showroom of the most current Ingemar production.
The following were used for the occasion: pontoons of different widths, reinforced, standard, ordinary freeboard, raised freeboard, finger, mooring rods, breakwaters, and more…jibs, dead bodies, bottom chains, and anchoring systems with poles and chains.
In the meantime, other interventions are underway for initiatives in our country’s tourist port sector, such as: for the City Administration of

Outside the national borders, it is worth mentioning the interventions for the construction of fixed docks for the docking of work vehicles at Aqaba at Jordan and those at Sea City at Kuwait, where the production of the floating elements for the construction of the third dock (about 25,000 square meters of All Concrete type piers and fingers and a linear development of more than 10 km, to accommodate 850 boats) has been completed. Work on the fourth and final dock is currently in executive design, and after site equipment was moved to the vicinity of the new installation site, pre-fabrication activities for the new elements have resumed.
Corsica In the southern part of the island a
, a number of floating concrete breakwater elements (12x3x1.80m and displacement of 28 t.) have recently been installed, arranged by the municipal administration to protect the moorings further inland from the bay. A
, on the other hand, in the vicinity of Bonifacio, the expansion of the public landing built by Ingemar in 2017 is underway adjacent to the Porto Vecchio Marine floating harbor.
Saudi Arabia The latest installations for the Ministry of the Interior have been tested, which include the construction of special landings with steel finger and floating concrete units for boats up to 18m and, at two inadequately protected sites, a series of floating concrete breakwaters (20x4x2m with 65t displacement).
All elements were manufactured by Ingemar in Casale sul Sile in the province of Treviso, Italy; the disassembled pontoons and fingers were shipped in containers, while the large breakers reached by sea to the port of Jeddah, for installations on the banks of the Red Sea and that of Dammam For facilities in Gulf waters.
Montenegro The new tourist settlement of
, located right at the entrance to the Boka Kotorska Bay, was built around its marina to trace the image of the old fishing villages along the Adriatic coast, the core of which was the harbor. Once the work is completed, the water spaces will accommodate 2 new upper class marinas: a main one with ca.180 berths for boats up to 35m. and another for smaller vessels, whose modular lay-out is designed to be quickly reconfigured according to the seasonality and berthing demands of the moment. The fully-equipped marina will be ‘dressed’ with Ingemar floating docks and piers with unsinkable structures made of galvanized steel and concrete and embellished with fine wood decks.
Just these days, in a very rapid ‘turnkey’ operation, the first brush of pontoons complete with all equipment was completed.
Greece At Marina Zea di
, operated by D-Marin, after long vicissitudes related to local permissions, elements of Ingemar’s All Concrete type piers and floating docks that have remained stored for many years on Piraeus docks awaiting the go-ahead for installation are finally available and operational. Preliminary onshore and in-water inspections and tests confirm that all structures are in excellent condition and will soon form ‘the backbone’ of a new series of landings for the Athenians’ marina.
For nearly 40 years Ingemar has been producing and placing floating pontoons and breakwaters in Italy and abroad and is now among the very few companies in the industry with its own production autonomy; this allows it to apply internally the R&D necessary to anticipate market needs. ISO 9001 certification for the design, construction and installation of manufactured goods testifies to the company’s seriousness and ongoing commitment and is in addition to SOA certification in the ports sector for contracts up to 15.5 million euros. The company’s management and administration are located in Milan, while production and technical and sales support are concentrated in Casale sul Sile (TV). The Ingemar Group includes the parent company Ingemar for maritime design and engineering and the “syster-company” Ingemar Trade & Services for sales network and after-sales services. www.ingemar.it
