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.
High-strength steels enable novel lightweight marine structures
In FIMECC BSA program steel and shipbuilding experts joined their forces to develop novel lightweight marine structures. The utilisation of high-strength steels combined with advanced production technologies results in the weight reduction up to 20 percent bringing numerous advantages and rising competitiveness of Finnish shipbuilding industry.
