The maritime industry is under increasing pressure to manufacture vessels and equipment that are as energy efficient as possible. Developing disruptive, cost-effective manufacturing, repair and inspection technologies is an extremely important step towards this goal.
TWI, a world-leading research and technology organisation, and SSA, the voice of the UK marine industry, have teamed up to deliver a free one-day event to highlight new areas of welding, joining, modelling and coatings that could assist future initiatives.
The seminar, which takes place on 7 April 2016 at TWI’s state-of-the-art facilities near Cambridge, is aimed at anyone connected with the shipbuilding industry or maritime sectors with an interest in technology development and how to access UK and European collaborative funding.
Speakers include RNLI’s Holly Phillips, who will take a look at recent technical developments to meet the RNLI’s specific challenges, and Innovate UK’s Louise Mothersole, who will give a presentation on maritime funding opportunities.
Throughout the day TWI experts will discuss subjects such as underwater welder training, adhesive bonding for composite boat repair, spraying for repair for maritime components and modelling of maritime structures for distortion control.
Registration opens at 10.00 with presentations starting at 10.30. The event closes at 15.00. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
