The project LASS, was a VINNOVA ( and industry sponsored Swedish research project, coordinated by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, dep for Fire Technology, that were run between 2004 and 2008. The project aim was to re-design five existing vessels and one offshore living quarter using new lightweight composite and aluminium materials.
