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 carry more cargo 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.

Composite engineering for the rig of S/Y Aquarius

Composite engineering for the rig of S/Y Aquarius

At the end of 2019, the Royal Huisman shipyard was once again singled out for an award. Sailing yacht Aquarius won two prizes during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. One in the category 'Sailing yacht longer than 40 metres' and one in the category 'Best interior'. We’d like to congratulate the builder Royal Huisman for this great achievement!

All-in-one helideck and swimming pool floor

All-in-one helideck and swimming pool floor

Swimming pools on-board of yachts often take up valuable outdoor deck space. For this reason, Solico developed a dual function moveable swimming pool floor and helideck all-in-one. Since that time, we have engineered eight similar  floors for other yachts.
