Composite Superstructure Concept
A Joint Development
The Composite Superstructure Concept is a joint venture between the shipyard Kockums AB (a member of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems with more than 35 years experience of design and construction of composite ships), DIAB (a world leader in composite core materials and technology) and Thermal Ceramics (a division of Morgan Crucible that is a significant force in the world of fire protection and insulation systems). All three companies have been heavily involved in the multi-faceted, government-sponsored LASS project, the aim of which is to improve the efficiency of marine transportation through the usage of lightweight structures.
The group can guide and advise on any aspect of the structure – engineering, manufacturing methodology, fire protection or certification.
