Ariane of Stockholm
We Kathe and Bengt Salbro living onboard our sailing boat s/y Ariane of Stockholm, have sailed from Sweden to Whangarei, New Zealand.
Due to that we first of all needed to clean the bottom thoroughly and get new antifouling, we asked our Swiss friend Herbert staying at Riverside Drive Marina where he went to have his keel blasted and painted (he was very satisfied with what had been done) and his comment was: Rudolphs, they know what they are doing! Further more, they are as close to Dockland 5 as they can be - they are neighbours!
We stayed at Rudolphs and had the bottom blasted totally clean to get new epoxy and antifouling. It was 24 years since the boat got painted and still, the steel hull is in very good shape. It surely pays off to have it done by professionals and at Rudolphs, they are definitely professionals! We also took the opportunity to do some touch ups on the top side. We are very pleased with the result.
During our stay with Rudolphs, we have only good memories and all the staff is very kind and helpful.
Lower Hatea Bridge Project
Being able to contribute to such an iconic NZ project in our own town, over our own river is not only testament to our capacity and capability but is a testament to the very heart and soul of our commitment to Northland.
Point Forward & Te Mahi Hou Projects
Subcontracting to South Pacific Industrial Ltd and Culham Engineering, Rudolphs also supplied on-site crews for touch up and site work on the Point Forward project.
Commencing with preparation of black steel plate in late 2012 to completion of all coatings for the fully constructed vessel both inside and outside, the Rudolphs Team assigned to the project are proud to have been the chosen coatings applicator.
Rudolphs completed all the abrasive blasting work and applied approximately 5500L of Akzo Nobel’s International Paint Coatings range of various high performance products over the 9 month painting programme.
Countdown Waiheke Project
“Their team were key contributors to the success of the recently completed Countdown Waiheke Project being delivered to our client’s expectations. We wish Rudolphs Ltd every success in their future endeavours and look forward to an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship.”
