Shipbuilding in ALUMINIUM

Shipbuilding in ALUMINIUM

Due to its characteristics and advantages, shipbuilding in aluminum has been expanding in recent years. Most visible advantage is related to the weight / resistance vessels resulting in lighter, capable of higher speed operation with a low cost of fuel. The naval aluminum presents an excellent corrosion resistance, leading to lower operating costs for maintenance of the hull, keeping a great visual aspect, particularly important in passenger vessels. The low fuel consumption and reduced maintenance cost of the hull and superstructure, aluminum makes the right choice for shipbuilding in certain vessels.
