BlastOne International and Fincantieri Marinette Marine Enter Partnership
BlastOne International and Fincantieri Marinette Marine enter a partnership to retrofit the existing building into a state-of-the-art blast and paint facility. BlastOne International was awarded a turn-key project to retrofit an existing building into a cutting-edge blast and paint facility for Fincantieri Marinette Marine (FMM). This new facility, built with four independent bays, will enable the shipbuilder to prepare, blast, and paint ship sections in an environmentally controlled environment to facilitate maximum production uptime.
FMM has invested heavily in the most state-of-the-art equipment for maximum production of ships, including the new Constellation-class Frigate Program (FFG 62) for the U.S. Navy. The new facility will be outfitted with specialized recirculating blast ventilation air to reduce energy consumption, dehumidification technology to help maximize the number of operating days, and a unique flow design to allow ship sections to move from blasting to painting seamlessly. Additionally, heat recovery will be used to reduce the consumption of natural resources and improve environmental impact. This new, fast-paced project is already in progress and expected to be completed in less than a year.
