SPS (Sandwich Plate System) is the answer. As a cost-effective, environmentally superior and time efficient ship repair and strengthening solution, SPS reduces repair time by up to 60% compared to traditional crop and renewal techniques.
SPS technology offers significant saving in space and weight. The life-long composite product can raise a ship’s productivity, a key parameter in IMO’s emissions-related Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index and its Carbon Intensity Indicator.
