Design of composite constructions
Composite is a strong alternative to traditional construction materials such as steel and aluminium. The key advantages of composite are its light weight, high strength and corrosion resistance.
At ShipCon, we specialise in the design of complex steel and aluminium constructions, but we also have extensive experience in composite design and provide all the technical calculations and drawings required for composite constructions.
In the maritime industry, the demand for green solutions that reduce the environmental impact of shipping has risen as environmental laws and regulations have been tightened. By building ships and marine equipment in lightweight materials such as composite, you reduce not only fuel consumption and operational costs but also the environmental impact.
