Maritime

With more than 30 years of experience in Defence and Maritime, we still try to surpass ourselves every day with a more elegant or lighter solution in the smartest way possible.

Composite engineering for Maritime applications

Whether the focus of your project is on cost efficiency, high-end design or lightweight solutions for better performance, with in-depth calculations, our team knows how to create a high-quality basis that is class proof. We have a vast multidisciplinary network which enables us to anticipate and think in terms of providing solutions quickly. This experience ensures a fast turn-around time for each project. Also, Solico assists in purchasing decisions through advice and support to ensure that the quality remains extremely high.

Our specialisation is composite engineering. We are a massive fan of composites because we believe that this material offers many advantages to the maritime world:

  • Composites are lightweight and extremely strong. Therefore, the lightweight solution allows a vessel to:
    - Be faster
    - Extend range by reducing fuel consumption
    - Be able to bring more shipment for transport or other materials.
  • Composites are radar transparent: The solution protects a radar without affecting the vision.
  • Composites are easy to maintain and corrosion-resistant;

In summary, composites are cost-effective and can turn every complex design into reality. Check all the benefits of composites.
