The Wärtsilä team has worked in the last years to improve the design and manufacture of parts called “TUBES” which are designed to facilitate the maneuverability of the ship by keeping it at a fixed point during offshore operations, Piston that can remove the nozzles from inside the helmet or store them as needed.

In addition, all closure devices, platforms, piping and hydraulic displacement devices have been manufactured in the Vigo and Porriño plants, which allow the equipment to operate.

At ACEBRON GROUP we are proud to have been part of the project as partners of Wärtsilä Ibérica for the machining of the 4 Tubes and other critical elements of the equipment. It has been a challenge to mechanize these pieces, both for their giant dimensions, 2.6 m in diameter, 8 meters in length and 30 tones (weight before assembly of the equipment and internal components) and for their high quality requirements, which We have managed to deal with success and great satisfaction on the part of our client.

The good technical result obtained in this project has been made possible thanks to the high technical capacity and experience of our team, our modern machinery park specializing in large parts as well as excellent collaboration and cooperation with our client Wärtsilä Ibérica.

As every day, from ACEBRON GROUP we will continue working to have many more success cases in which we help our clients to reach their technological challenges, providing differential and innovative solutions, based on the knowledge of the sector and the effective use of the best technology.

We leave below, more information on this project, published on 03/19/17 in the newspaper Faro de Vigo.
