Composite materials

Intelligent material, tailored performance

We specialize in the design and manufacture of components in all-composite materials. These deliver high-strength, very low structural weight vessels.

Low structural weight presents several benefits including a high payload fraction, reduced displacement, power requirements and up to 20-30% lowered fuel consumption than aluminium vessels.

Non-corrosive composite materials are non-toxic to the environment and can be recycled into concrete. Composite hull materials and components greatly reduce lifecycle costs and increase vessel’s lifetime, adding to vessels’ sustainability.

Decades of expertise in constructing vessels and components in composite sandwich materials offers a unique opportunity to customize the structure with specific features in accordance with specific operational requirements:

  • Weight
  • Stiffness
  • Strength
  • Chemical resistance
  • Electric conductivity
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Incorporate fire restricting capabilities
  • Embed de-icing
  • Embed sensor/ monitoring systems
