Speed, lightness and strength
Vigorous expansion of offshore activities and incessant increase of sea cargo volumes have drawn global attention to the benefits offered by composites in marine applications. TBS represents longstanding specialized know-how from shipbuilding and adjacent areas. From an exacting demand specification, we will be able to develop the optimal material/design combination for any specific task and tune various functions into efficient interaction.
Composites have set the standards for speed, lightness and strength in modern shipbuilding. Compared to an aluminium vessel, composite hulls typically reduce weight by 30 percent – a fact with great impact on fuel cost, operational speed and life cycle economy. Environmental gains, improved structural stability and reduced maintenance are some additional “standard benefits”.
