About E-LASS

Established in 2013, The European network for lightweight applications at sea (E-LASS) gather stakeholders interested in lightweight design for the maritime industry. The aim is to create an organization where exchange of information and knowledge becomes easy and natural. The commitment to initiate collaboration with other networks is in line with this aim. E-LASS has over 300 members from 32 different nations.


The need for lightweight materials and lightweight design at sea is driven by the two main societal challenges of today: energy efficiency and environmental stewardship. A lighter vessel will use less fuel and a semi-submersible offshore platform can only fully attain an optimized weight distribution through proper lightweight design. An offshore wind turbine deprived of lightweight design and lightweight materials is scarcely imaginable. For many applications, however, the increased use of novel lightweight designs are being slowed down by tradition and conservative resistance to change, coupled to a lack of experience and knowledge. E-LASS aims at facilitating activities in support of necessary development of lightweight design.
