The production of the pontoon assembly set

In October 2018, the workers of our shipyard Barkmet, a.s. have finished the production of the pontoon assembly set.
It consists of 8 pieces of so-called “floats” which must be freely interconnected with each other.
After all necessary operational tests, including floatability and connectivity, the pontoons were successfully passed on to the customer, who will use them as a platform for the work of dredgers and boreholes.
The steel structure of the pontoons and the connecting pins are made of special “class A” steel.
The whole building process of the pontoons has been under the supervision of CS Lloyd.
Since the pontoons are arbitrarily interconnected with each other, it was a very precise and technically demanding production, which our staff managed excellently!!!

Launching of yacht "Aeolus"

On June 8, 2016 took place, at the Czech shipyard Barkmet, launching of yacht "Aeolus", which underwent extensive repair. This vessel was purchased several years ago by Czech owner in the Netherlands. At that moment status of the vessel corresponded to several years of wear in the service of the Coast Guard.
Barkmet shipyard workers generally reconstructed the yacht, made repair of the hull and ship's interior. Now the yacht will be used for recreational purposes mainly on the rivers Vltava and Elbe. Later this year „Aeolus“ will issue a long journey to the North Sea.
