Forget the boundaries and take a closer look
In response to requests from oceanographers, private vessel builders and the tourist industry, TEGEMA has developed a transparent ship’s prow. This offers a clear view of the sea floor, and allows visual corroboration and measurement for researchers and a unique experience for leisure purposes.
Quite a challenge, as the vast prow had to be identical to a ‘regular’ metal stern, in terms of hydrodynamics, safety and crash resistance. Smart choices of materials, connection technologies, surface treatments and advanced simulation testing have led to an integrated solution which answers all these challenges.
