According to RT-Khimkompozit’s press office Rostec’s holding company and Technotrans the group of companies have agreed to cooperate in the area of manufacturing composite constructions for river boats.
Modules for boats will be manufactured by means of vacuum infusion. This technology enables to make large complex composite surfaces whose production is quite cheap
As part of the project RT-Khimkompozit’s companies are going to make research and development in the area of creating composite constructions for universal module boats. It is also planned to manufacture composite constructions for universal module boats, glazing and paint and varnish components.
The project of universal module boats is meant to create multifunctional module boats of “river-sea” class. All universal module boats have small draught up to 1.2 m and 200-400 tons' displacement.
“Modules for boats will be manufactured by means of vacuum infusion. This technology enables to make large complex composite surfaces whose production is quite cheap”, says Sergey Sokol, Director General of RT-Khimkompozit.
A module construction makes it possible to cost-effectively change the purpose of a boat. You can take apart your boat completely so that you can carry it to a remote place where it’s going to be used. You can also change some sections of modules.
“A module principle will make it possible to reduce the cost price of a boat up to 40% in comparison with traditional methods”, says Yevgeniy Demidov, Director of Technotrans.
The parties have also been discussing after-sale service and maintenance of universal module boats.
TECHNOTRANS is a group of companies focusing on creating and maintaining electronic documents, developing and implementing interactive electronic guides and tutorials in respect of military, civil and dual-purpose products. The company also focuses on designing boats made of composition materials and is acknowledged by Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.
RT-KHIMKOMPOZIT OJSC is Rostec’s holding company comprising companies and scientific centers that focus on innovations in the area of creating new materials, unique constructions and technologies and on manufacturing products for space exploration, aviation, defense technology and ammunition, surface and water transport, power engineering, chemical manufacture for many branches of industry.
