Why aluminium in offshore?

Aluminium is an ideal material for offshore structures and vessels of all kinds.

  1. Aluminium is non-combustible. It has better fire protection capabilities than carbon fiber, which contains flammable.
  2. Secondly, aluminium is strong, with strong engineering in support.
  3. Despite its strength, aluminium is very light, thanks to its low density. Vessel designers can achieve weight savings of 40 percent over steel.
  4. Lower costs can be achieved in the construction phase of shipbuilding through advances in cutting and welding processes.
  5. Aluminium can reduce maintenance costs because it is less corrosive than steel, which is a clear benefit in salt water, and it doesn’t need to be painted, which is an advantage for offshore applications.
