Presentation held at the second public workshop of the FIBRESHIP project, held at La Ciotat, France, on 25th of June 2019. The second public workshop of the FIBRESHIP project offered to the participants a chance to discuss the different composite materials solutions for shipbuilding as well as learn more about the latest technological advances of FIBRESHIP Project related to design, construction and operation of ships integrally built in composite materials. FIBRESHIP Consortium is looking for a niche in the future shipping market through promoting changes in the regulatory framework of IMO and generating guidelines and methodologies for designing, building and operating large-length vessels, laying the foundations of a new market based on composites technology in shipbuilding and shipping.
This presentation is focussed on the development of efficient production methodologies and automatized processes which can be efficiently used for the construction of large-length composite ships by the shipyards. Furthermore, it describes the technical feasibility of the construction of the demonstrator of the project using exclusively lightweight composite materials.
An impressive time-lapse video about the entire process of construction of the demonstrator is shown below.
