PoDoCo project pushed lightweight vessel forward
Ingrit Lillemäe-Avi investigated the fatigue strength of high strength steel with Meyer Turku under the PoDoDo program. The results show significantly improved fatigue strength of this innovative steel pushing lightweight vessel forward. Ingrit is now employed by Meyer Turku and continues the research work with the aim to introduce high strength steel in vessel structures.
Co-development of marine eco-technology solutions – opening new growth to start-ups and SMEs
Many claims are made about the eco-efficiency of various technologies in transportation. But how can suppliers credibly demonstrate the real fuel and cost savings of their products, especially as so many factors such as weather conditions impact the results? With the help of the DIMECC REBUS program, NAPA has developed its capabilities in verifying the commercial credibility...
