The Anne Risley is one of the most technologically advanced fishing vessels of its kind. Although similar in appearance to its predecessor - Belle Carnell – the team at Allswater revamped our original concept to improve the overall efficiency of the vessel.
Focusing on simplicity and maintainability, the new XTidal Instream Platform (XIP) is our latest design for the tidal energy industry. Using input and feedback from industry experts, developers and turbine suppliers, our third generation platform has increased power capacity, modular construction and greatly enhanced stability.
Allswater continues its involvement in the tidal energy industry, undertaking a FEED (front end engineering and design) study of foundation installations for the Minas Basin in Nova Scotia. The study focuses on the design and deployment of subsea equipment in high flow regions which have limited infrastructure and heavy lift or DP vessels.
Allswater is pleased to have reached another milestone by receiving our ISO 9001:2008 Certificate of Registration from NSF-ISR - an internationally accredited registrar.
The ISO-9001 Quality Standards have proven to be the perfect tool to help synchronize the project management and document management systems that have fueled our success for a number of years. Our formalized approach to quality has become the glue between these two essential systems.
Rebuilding our Project Management System using Accelo
When Allswater went looking for a new project management and timekeeping system, we evaluated lots of options and demoed may of them. There was no one system that would do what we wanted. Through this research, we discovered a company that was doing cool things with electronic communications. Things we had no idea were possible.
