When the prototype was launched at SMM last year it created a lot of interest from the cruise, river Cruise, ferry and defence industries claims PEC/Trimline.
Benefits associated by installing the new lightweight cabin over traditional steel structures includes saving 50% in the weight of each cabin, improved vessel stability and numerious finishing options including seamless walls.
During the next phase, PEC and Trimline will focus on reducing the cabin production cost and by the end of 2018 will develop a pilot production plant capable of making several hundred cabins per year.
The project will also design a full production plant to satisfy the predicted increasing demand. Cabins will carry MED and other certification relevant to each application and region.
