Diving Bell Deliveries For DSV Oriental Dragon

At the beginning of August 2017 Drass shipped two Drass i100 Series diving bells, an integral part of the diving system, on board the DSV ORIENTAL DRAGON.
This vessel is now equipped with the latest release of Drass’ 100 Series diving system, including the Drass i100 Automation System.

Following delivery, Drass team travelled to CSSC Huangpu Shipbuilding in China to attend the commissioning kick-off meeting.
We are glad to support CSSC Huangpu in the complete supervision of the diving integration, including the piping outfitting and equipment positioning on foundations. Drass consolidated experience enables a wide scope of support including overall coordination with the Class and review of the shipyard’s design deliverables.
Thanks to the reciprocal trust and cooperation with CSSC, we are developing a tailored software solution to manage the Quality Assurance, Quality Control and the Progress of Activities on board. This expansion of specialized vessel integrated competencies allows Drass to provide a turnkey solution to DSV and submarine rescue vessel builders.

123 Project is Going On

 (“The Magnificent 500”) is the title of a recently published report that appeared in “Corriere della Sera”, the highly regarded Italian economic newspaper. It references the top 500 companies in Italy that had a substantial improvement in turnover between 2010 and 2016. Drass Galeazzi, in an analysis and comparison of over 12,000 like companies, was placed 119th and found itself amongst the top quartile of the "Magnificent 500".

Drass Galeazzi is the main company of a Group that in only five years increased the total turnover by 200%, with an average improvement per year of 11.5 million Euros. Similar results have been achieved for the Group equity (consistent improvement per year of 10.3 million Euros) and Total assets (average improvement per year of 12.5 million Euros). But the real strength of Drass is the shareholder equity that in the last few years is constantly on 80%, together with a ROI index of about 30%. Financial indexes show a flexible corporate structure characterized by an ever greater solidity. These conditions are made possible thanks to high profits, which are always reinvested into the business. Drass also achieves this impressive result due to its high level of innovation and flexibility, thanks to its ability to design and produce internally through an accurate certified quality process.
