Lightweight construction applications at sea
The project LASS, Lightweight construction applications at sea, aims at improving the efficacy of marine transport and to increase the competitiveness of the Swedish shipbuilding industry. This will be accomplished through the development and demonstration of techniques for using lightweight materials for ship construction.
The consortium behind the project consists of representatives from the Swedish shipping industry, Swedish materials manufacturing industries, Swedish universities and research institutes as well as public authorities and classification societies. The three-year project started in January 2005. LASS is sponsored by VINNOVA (www.vinnova.se), participating industries and partners. This report contains a short description of the accomplishments so far. For further information please visit the official website at www.lass.nu.
