To date, 12 workshops have been certified, and a workshop in Italy will be added to the list next month. Major cruise ports include Piraeus, Hamburg, Rio de Janeiro, St. John's, Dubai and Shanghai.The Danish company's goal is to have a certified workshop in all major repair ports around the world, says managing director John T. Nielsen. Another eight should be added in 2010.
Epoxy protects against wear and galvanic corrosion so, for example, repairing a seawater filter using this method will retrieve its initial durability and functionality and typically at a fraction of the cost of a new spare part, notes Nielsen. He adds it is much easier and faster to mount the refurbished part than adapt a new one.
In addition to workshops Wencon has a number of distributors and stock points around the world.
