Permanent Lifecycle Solution Cold Work Solution Class-approved Construction & Repairs Stiffened Steel Alternative
Permanent, Class-Approved Structural Steel Repair Method
SPS is currently the only thermoset solution being used in the maritime industry. With approved hot and cold work installation methods, SPS has been used to efficiently reinstate bottom and side shell structures, decks, tank tops and bulkheads, and to repair vessel cracks. SPS Technology has an extensive, proven history of repairs to cruise ships, bulk carriers, tankers, Ro-Ros, general cargo ships, dredgers, barges, LNG and LPG carriers, ice breakers and many other types of vessel.
SPS repairs are more sustainable and reduce costs by incorporating the existing corroded plating, thereby using less steel in comparison with conventional steel renewal. The savings are greatly enhanced with the further consideration of charter or off-hire, as an SPS repair is up to four times faster.
