FROM TAURANGA TO ITALY: CAGLIARI SAILING BASE
Updated: Jan 25
The 22 x 45 meter container base for INEOS Team UK, competing in the 36th America’s Cup challengers series, is made up of some solid examples of some of the steel framing and support components that we fabricate. These include trusses, support bracings, alloy arch purlins and the attachment components connecting the containers to the roof structure of the racing team’s workshop facility. We manufactured this equipment for Baytex, a local company supplying semi-permanent structures to the America's Cup teams.
With the UK team based in Cagliari, Sardinia, these components travelled by shipping container from the Tauranga Port to Italy in October 2019.
