LO STUDIO

The Studio Tecnico Averame works within the shipping business since three generations.
The company was born in 1947 thanks to his member founder, Giuseppe Averame, degree in naval architecture and marine engineering. Originally the Company main activity was designing new building for shipyards which weren’t able to do so as they lacked in an adequate organization.

Over these years this commitment has increased considerably and the staff office has arrived to a consistent number of 25 technicians between designers, administrative staff as well as support staff.
The office has designed more than 100 ships producing more than 10.000 drawings.

In the early 60’s the Studio participates at the so called “Canguri” vessel project. The Company Ferryboat ordered two sister ferryboat denominated “Canguro Rosso” and “Canguro Azzurro” which were the first two vessels designed to transport both passengers and vehicles.
Subsequently was ordered the construction of three sister ferryboat of 5223 t.s.i. denominated “Canguro Verde”, “Canguro Bianco” and “Canguro Bruno”.

One of the most significant innovations, in those years, was the possibility of embarking light and heavy vehicles directly from the stern of the ferry through a mobile tailgate, despite what took place up to that moment where, by means of cranes, they were embarked by being carried up from the top to the cargo hold of the vessel.
Finally other 5 ferryboats were built; the “Canguro Grigio”, “Canguro Biondo”, “Canguro Giallo” and “Canguro Fulvo”, for the only use of goods transportation with the peculiarity of having an electric diesel propulsion which was, in that period, an innovative characteristic.

In the early 70’s, the design section decreased, but, thanks to the event of the son, Naval Architect and Marine Engineer Vincenzo Averame, and to the synergy with Naval Architect Giancarlo Franco, with whom was formed a new company, the Studio Tecnico Franco & Averame, new types of professional activities came to light, of which “Technical management of vessels in service”, “Technical expertise in arbitration and court procedures”, “Insurance appraisal and P & I”, “Technical assistance and supervision during the construction of new vessels”, “Technical assistance in rescuing operations of vessels”, “Technical and commercial evaluations of new vessels and of second hand”.

During these years, the company has come to manage more than 20 vessels.

In 1985 the office started a cooperation with the Acomarit of Geneva and further on with the VShips of Geneva regarding the technical management of various ships.
