Senesco Invests in New Welding System

Posted by Irina Tabakina

Senesco Marine Shipyard invested in a welding system, concluding a deal with Pemamek to deliver a PEMA Welding Portal for the welding of double bottoms and subassemblies.
Senesco Marine, a Reinauer Transportation Company, is a shipyard for new construction and vessel repair in the Northeast, consisting of 26 acres of Narragansett Bay waterfront property. To boost its fabrication capability, Senesco chose PEMA’s welding automation technology and made a deal of a twin robot welding gantry. Senesco needed more capacity, so to increase the throughput, the yard got a flexible, yet capable gantry that improves productivity and reduces man hours per vessel.
“The next step for Senesco Marine is to produce not only quality built vessels but at an increased pace to meet the needs of our customers,” said Michael J. Foster, Vice President and General Manager of Senesco. “We currently are in a continuing build program for our current customers and at the same time are looking at new work for potential new customers. To be able to do this we are making the investment with PEMA to increase the throughput thus reducing the timeframe required to complete these vessels, which leaves room for even more opportunities.”
Senesco Marine has built and delivered nearly two dozen 60k, 80K and 100K barrel double-hulled fuel and chemical barges with accompanying ATB Tugs for clients, and is constructing a current line of 100K barrel double-hulled fuel and chemical barges with accompanying ATB Tugs.
