 Amico And Co unveils new shiplift for up to 95m superyachts
At Amico & Co Genoa refit facility, new 4000-ton ShipLift has been officially unveiled, after a month in operation. The new lift is able to haul, manoeuvre and launch superyachts of up to 95 metres in length deploying a system of synchronised hoists. Assigned to Amico & Co with a multi-year concession, the the investmen lays in the new Eastern areas of Genoa Port. It allows the Shipyard to have 5 new slots or super- and megayacht works. The new ShipLift, which is now operative, should contribute to the enhancement of the Genoese hub in terms of its competition with other similar yachting zones in Barcelona and the South of France.The ShipLift allows yachts that would otherwise need to be docked in dry-docks to be hauled from the water and put on the hardstanding for repair and refit works. It deploys a submersible platform, housed inside a dedicated structure, that can raise vessels up to the shipyard ground level through a series of synchronised hoists. From there, a trestle system on special tracks glides vessels on to the hardstanding with 5 new work slots.Manoeuvring is emissions-free as both the lift system with its large steel platform moving the vessels out of the sea and the trestle and track system, are powered electrically by the shipyard’s own electrical supply. Amico & Co was also the first company in the Port of Genoa in 2007 to invest in the mooring docks electrification project, today supplying the yachts that arrive in the shipyard with shore power of up to 1000 Ampere.Construction of the new ShipLift was carried out by Scandiuzzi SpA, an Italian industrial engineering firm based in Brindisi. Meanwhile, the design and building of the transfer system composed of 24 trestles that connects the lifting platform to the entire yard area was commissioned to Dutch company Enerpac.In total, the new infrastructure entailed an a €27 million investment from the yard. The ShipLift and new slots span over a 15,000 m2 area and complete Amico & Co facilities already covering 45,000 square metres.Photos: Amico & Co
Rosetti reveals 65m superyacht concept Project Orca
Italian yard Rosetti Superyachts has introduced its latest superyacht concept, the 65-metre explorer superyacht Project Orca. Collaborating with Trieste-based Meccano Engineering, responsible for naval architecture, engineering and exteriors of the project, the designers drew inspiration from the natural world.The vessel’s name comes after the orca, the largest and most powerful killer whale. They are recognisable through distinctive black-and-white colouring and a capable of crossing waters from the Arctic and Antarctic to the Tropics, what Project Orca is conceived to do, too. One of the key features corresponding with the nature, is the typical white side patch of an orca that lays at the owner’s deck level and can be illuminated at night. Bearing “strong supply vessel characteristics”, the vessel would come with bold superstructure styling with wrap-around glazing, a radar mast resembling a dorsal fin. Rosetti Superyachts CEO and chairman Fulvio Dodich commented:We have already done the concept engineering and completed the technical specifications for Project Orca, and if we sell the boat tomorrow and want to make a start on it, we can begin construction.The vessel would boast a generous 12-metre beam and interior volume of approximately 1,300 GT. The four-deck superyacht with a tank deck on top, Project Orca would allow her owners to choose among several deck configurations. The 65-metre can accommodate up to 12 guests across six cabins, with the capacity to sleep a crew of 12. The cabins layout would comprise a master suite, a full-beam VIP on the main deck, with two VIPs and two cabins underneath. The dedicated owner’s deck would have his and hers en-suite bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe, gym and large private terrace.In the standard configuration, the yacht has open main deck in the stern to house an extra tender and toys, including snow sledges, and a touch-and-go helipad. Alternatively, the area could comprise a centrally-laid infinity pool, a heli-hangar, or raised helipad with a pool and spa zone or lounge beneath.A large garage aft on the lower deck can either store two large tenders or host a number of water toys such as jet skis. Additionally, upon the owner’s choice half of the garage can be modified to a beach club. Meanwhile, other sunbathing areas, dining facilities and a bar can be found on spacious sun deck.Propelled by twin CAT 3512 1398kW engines, Project Orca would be able to cover 5,000 miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots, with a potential to extend the range up to 7,000 nautical miles.Fulvio Dodich stated that the yard had been negotiating the project with several potential customers. Rosetti estimates, construction of the first Project Orca would take 36 months once a deal is closed.
