SPS offers naval architects, shipbuilders and ship owners a new construction material with scope to adopt a whole new approach to ship design. Complex steel structures are instantly simplified.
Prefabricated plates with factory-applied coatings offer dimensional accuracy, near perfect flatness and reduce costly fit out work. Typical 20m sq plates can be simply produced in large numbers ready for rapid assembly.
