First-class sales representation of innovative tracking solutions
Azimuth Marine is an official European sales agent of a patent-pending, modular tensioner system called FlexTrack. The solution provides much-needed flexibility when setting up new tracks.
The FlexTrack system has an adjustable pulling force, which is activated by assembling FlexTrack units as needed. Components can be positioned in a linear or curved configuration.
The user-friendly and innovative design makes flexible positioning along the product route possible, which reduces the need for working space while creating a compact and clear working environment for the operator.
A plug-and-play feature is integrated into the FlexTrack system, ensuring units are simple and fast to set-up and configure.
Azimuth managing director Joost de Waal says: “The advantages are numerous. When you have a 6t tensioner but you need an 8t tensioner for the next project, you were forced to buy an expensive 8t tensioner.
“With the FlexTrack system, you only need to add another 2t unit. The possibility to have the units in a curved configuration reduces the required working space and is better for the product, reducing stresses and pulling force needed. The FlexTrack units are compact and can be moved by forklift, while the units are powerful and have a max pulling force of 2t each.”
Since 2007, Azimuth has shown constant growth and helped owners, shippers, charterers, operators and managers to carry out their projects successfully.
The 600MW Gemini offshore wind farm, which is being developed in the Dutch part of the North Sea, approximately 85km off the coast of Groningen, is expected to be one of the world's biggest offshore wind farms.
