Pinovo was delighted to send our clean surface treatment equipment to the Swedish Navy (Swedish Armed Forces) for the first time last week. This is in addition to our existing customers in that industry - the Royal Norwegian Navy, and the Royal Navy in the UK.
For security reasons, we obviously do not talk about the work we do for individual Defence Industry customers. What we can say however that it is often related to our capacity
- to work in challenging environments e.g. surface preparation inside the torpedo tube on a submarine, or
- to do clean spot blasting safely beside unprotected, highly sophisticated, very sensitive and valuable equipment e.g. surface treatment of hatches on the deck of a frigate.
In addition, the defence industry recognises the importance of Sustainability, and Ocean Protection and Ocean Health. For example, when surface treatment is being done on the outside of a submarine, or on the deck of a frigate, they want to stop Paint Microplastic Pollution entering the Ocean.
For all of these good industrial and sustainability reasons, our defence industry customers have chosen to use Pinovo’s clean blasting solution, after long and demanding selection processes.
Should your industrial or marine operation not be switching from the traditional dirty, pollutive methods of surface treatment - open grit blasting, and high pressure water jetting - to the sustainable solution of clean circular vacuum blasting?
