SUMMARY

Fixcel system, a steel sandwich structure technology enabling the off-ship construction of rigid loadbearing blocks of cabins in macro models of six to twelve, was developed. Fixcel system takes shipbuilding to the next level by reducing weight, shortening construction times, enabling lighter structures and more cabins in the same volume. This generates savings in operational and environmental costs.
