Solico is pleased to announce its latest marine collaboration with Aeolos Composites, having engineered the new Aeolos Performance 30, a striking new all carbon 30-foot sailing yacht built in the Middle East.
Sara Krekel, one of Solico’s lead engineers, knows that for engineers to do their best work, they must have all of their tools! However, she noticed that occasionally it was hard to find the tool she needed when she needed it. Sometimes the tools would vanish onto the desk of another colleague. Like a good engineer, Sara saw a problem and started thinking of a solution. In this moment, Sara created the original proposal for the Solico Toolkit!
In the April/May 2021 issue of the International Boat Industry publication, Solico was mentioned as "A keen observer of current trends..." in the article "Towards a sustainable future". Read what all the buzz is about!
The past few years, Solico has proudly been a silver sponsor of Eco-Runner team Delft; especially as the team gives future engineers the chance to put their studies into action. This was one of the reasons why Dante, lead engineer at Solico, helped to found the Eco-Runner Team Delft back in 2005.
"Composite materials are enabling owners to customise their yachts exactly as they want them, without having to compromise on stability or aesthetics. Ship & Boat International speaks to composite engineering firm Solico Engineering B.V. for an overview of the main benefits and current trends..." Check out our latest feature in Ship & Boat International! S&BI interviewed Coen Meerbach about the latest trends and benefits of using marine composites.
Solico is proud to announce the launch of its Amphora software for the design, calculation and optimisation of composite storage tanks and silos. Composite materials are extensively used in the industrial and agricultural sectors to produce large, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, easy to install, and low maintenance silos and tanks for stored powders and liquids. In Europe, the design and workmanship of such above-ground storage tanks and vessels are typically defined by the EN 13121-3:2016 standard.
Solico has welcomed two new composite engineering specialists to its team, with a total of 16 engineering personnel now operating from the company’s headquarters in Oosterhout, Netherlands. Despite challenging global business conditions, Solico delivered strong results across all business units in 2020 and has reported a significant increase in demand for composite engineering services within the Maritime, Industrial and Defence sectors.
At 12:30 A.M. on 2 November, a runaway Dutch metro was saved by a whale tail sculpture. The metro had burst through the buffer stop while approaching the end of the line in Spijkenisse, the Netherlands. Solico engineered the sculpture which caught the runaway train, preventing a total catastrophe.
