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

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

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

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