Two EU research projects promote lighter materials in shipbuilding

Bureau Veritas is involved in two research projects funded by the European Horizon2020-program to develop the use of new materials in shipbuilding. The FIBRESHIP project aims to enable the construction of commercial ships over 50m in length using mainly fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials. Objectives of RAMSSES, meanwhile, include developing, assessing and validating 13 maritime products, and establishing a materials innovation platform. Both projects are designed to make ships and maritime products lighter, safer, more cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly.
