Seawork welcomes Italian Admirals
A delegation of four admirals from the Italian Navy, led by Vice Admiral Steffano Tortora, attended Seawork yesterday.
Asked for his impressions of the exhibition, Mr Tortora said: “It’s a very interesting and stimulating exhibition and we’re very grateful to have been invited by the Ministry of Defence."
“The marine business is getting more and more technologically advanced and many designs are appropriate for naval applications. What we have seen here is that there are solutions already available for problems that we know we have and it has confirmed that there is no longer a line between naval and marine environments and there is no need for us to re-invent the wheel," he added.
As a result of meetings held at Seawork, four exhibitors have been invited to Rome next week.
Alex Roberts of Nauti-Craft (R10 & V38) was surprised and delighted when the delegation paused to see the stunning video footage of the 8m, 1/3 scale, prototype showing its paces: “It is the forerunner to our full 24m WFSV. We are at Seawork to talk to – and team up with - European boatbuilders and suppliers to put the programme into action.”
