Efficiency, savings and optimum utilized resources are key words in today's society. Through increased cooperation S-lass, the Swedish network for lightweight structures at sea, wants to contribute to a positive and sustainable development in those areas.
With the network as basis, we collaborate within developing important lightweight field. Through newsletters and the network's website it is informed about activities and projects that is in the pipeline as well as the current steps in lightweight at sea.
The network has every year a couple of arrangements, free of charge for members, whose purpose is to increase knowledge and expertise among members, at the same time as it supports contacts and discussions.
- The autumn meetings focus on a particular subject which also includes practical exercises. 2011 that subject was on design and calculation of panels and the 2012 autumn meeting highlighted the sounds and vibrations in lightweight designs. According to members' requests, the 2013 autumn meeting will be about fire and regulation.
- The spring meetings has a clearer research perspective where interesting research in lightweight at sea are presented.
Members of the S-Lass are companies, institutes, universities, public institutions and other organizations active in the lightweight field in Sweden. Work is underway to extend the network at European level.
SP Fire Technology’s involvement in fire-resistant lightweight materials for marine applications has contributed to the construction of several smaller lightweight vessels, and to the current discussion within the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) of how larger ocean-going vessels could be built using plastic composites.
