The tourist excursion vessel, constructed by Brødrene Aa using SAERTEX carbon fibers, is a pioneering achievement in several respects, particularly because large sections of its hull and superstructure are made of carbon. The resulting weight reduction of up to 50 percent makes it possible to use a hybrid drive and this reduces exhaust emissions by over 20 percent. Alongside SAERTEX, the two other project partners – DIAB International AB and Reichhold LLC – also receive the award as co-winners. [...]
“We are very proud and delighted to receive this award. For our company it both confirms our competencies and motivates us to continue our trend-setting developments in cooperation with our customers to preserve natural resources in our world. Here, carbon is the material of the future. It will become the principal material for all applications in the transportation sector,” comments Christoph Geyer, member of the Global Executive Board and Chief Sales Officer (CSO) at SAERTEX.
