About being technically competitive.
Our marketing managers are well known, and we hope appreciated, by shipowners all over the world. But even the best marketing man cannot succeed in this harsh and competitive shipbuilding business if he is not backed, among others, by the most appropiate technology.
Did you know that the five 140.000 dwt. tankers under construction include superoptimised hydrodynamic shapes leading to large reductions in installed power over conventional systems?
Did you know that Astilleros is building nine freezers for Del Monte that consume only 124,5 gr bhp/h and can burn fuel up to 6000
Redwood No. 1 at 100°F?
Did you know that through engine room automation, automatic manoeuvring (AUT-P0RT notation) and control systems including CRT's for monitoring all spaces, some of our constructions may be operated by between 10% and 22% less crew than in conventional constructions?
While some yards complain about lack of orders, our yards are growing steadily in newbuildings.
Astilleros continues to make a genuine contribution to the expansion of Spain,the fastest growing economy in
Europe...Marketing? Technical excellence?
The answer is Astilleros.
