ACG Makes Solid Inroads
Since it was established in the mid- 19408, Azienda Chimica Genovese (ACG) has grown significantly, and today boasts a broad international market base with clients, both shipyards and shipowners from all over the world. Initially producing only antifouling units, ACG soon expanded its product range to include the supply of ICCP systems and in the early 1990s adopted its electro chlorination antifouling system to the disinfection of seawater swimming pools both onboard cruise ships and ashore.
ACG has three offices in China, one in Korea and another in Norway. It is assisted in its goal to satisfy all its clients by service engineers and agents located worldwide.
Azienda Chimica Genovese offers a high quality and effective product at very competitive prices and for this reason it has succeeded in entering the hearts and minds of clients all over the world.
Recent contracts in the U.S. include: • Bath Iron Works: Arleigh Burke DDG Destroyers for U.S. Navy, to supply electrochlorination antifouling sys- tem type R700. This system is capable of producing 228g chlorine per hour.
• Carnival Cruise Line: New ships being built at Fincantieri Monfalcone will include ACG's electrochlorination antifouling system for the protection of seachests and seawater pipelines from the growth of marine fouling. Each ship will install two type R4000 units for protection.
These ships will also use three ACG electrochlorination system of type R800 for the disinfection of seawater swimming pools aboard these new constructions.
