IngemarA lot of water has passed under the bridge since that 1979 that saw the birth of Ingemar. A time when the first floating docks for boating were considered futuristic and often opposed or mocked by their detractors.
Since then, the market appetite for the use of new artifacts has changed profoundly, environmental constraints have increased and the demand for design solutions that respect host ecosystems has grown, but the engineering and in some ways “pioneering” spirit of Ingemar’s origins has remained unchanged to this day. Today, most modern marinas make extensive use of floating landings, be it fingers, piers, docks, platforms or extra-large wave breakers, dedicated to vessels of all sizes, from the smallest to super yachts of many tens of meters; Just earlier this year, more than 3,000 voters worldwide from the Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) Gold Anchor awarded Porto Montenegro, equipped with Ingemar floating facilities, the top prize and the title of Super Yacht Marina of the Year 2015.

Ingemar has grown into a Group appreciated worldwide for the originality of its “Made in Italy” productions and today the industry’s latest frontier in maritime engineering research is related to the production of large-scale floating breakwaters, used to defend port settlements from wave motion. New productions are studied ad hoc in the laboratory with 3D CadCam models, subjected to hydrodynamic tests in the tank and, above all, made by exasperating the concept of modularity, with technical expedients that facilitate their transport and assembly at the place of installation and allow the creation of structures with even more perfomant protective characteristics than the monolithic ones in use.
