(PRWEB) November 12, 2010
Dominis Engineering announced completion of a set of water jet impellers for Wärtsilä Defense, Inc., in support of its U.S. Navy program. The impeller is a critical component of a ship’s water jet propulsion system. “The completion of these impellers is an important achievement for Dominis and demonstrates that we are a leading player in sophisticated machining of large and complex components” said Bodo Gospodnetic, President, Dominis Engineering. “Impellers and propellers are strategically important components and we are proud to have developed capabilities which are internationally competitive.”
Manufacturing impellers and propellers requires that large parts be machined to complex curved shapes with high precision. The technology to do this economically has been developed by Dominis Engineering, an Ottawa-based company which spun out of the Ship Research Laboratory of the National Research Council. The ongoing development of Dominis’ IPMS (Integrated Propeller Manufacturing System) keeps the Company at the forefront of this field and allows it to bring in contracts from around the world.
Dominis has achieved world-wide recognition for its capabilities as evidenced by business such as the machining of impellers for Wärtsilä Defense, Inc. Wärtsilä Defense, based in Chesapeake, VA supports the U.S. Government market segment, primarily with sales and service of marine propulsion equipment and shaft sealing solutions.
In addition to marine propulsion systems, Dominis has the capabilities to manufacture components for hydro-electric turbines, power systems and large compressors. Ongoing development of software systems and specialized tooling is the core of the Company’s business.
Dominis’ President, Bodo Gospodnetic’s ambition is to maintain the Company’s leading position and to develop new applications for its basic technology. “Support from NRC’s IRAP and Industry Canada has been key to the Company and has positioned us for growth in new products and markets.” said Mr. Gospodnetic.
