SP-High Modulus recently held a marine designer workshop in Forli, Italy, bringing together composite designers and engineers from all over Italy for a day of presentations and discussion.
According to SP, the free to attend workshop featured a number of presentations from key figures in the Italian marine composite market. These included Marco Arcuri from Arcuri Management, Sebastiano Morassutti from Trimarine and Andrea Giovani from Noor and Partners. Topics covered ranged from project management to constructing high performance composite yachts and recent trends in composite design and construction. Alongside this Paolo Manganelli and Paolo Dassi of SP’s marine composite structural engineering team also presented and lead the discussion sessions.
SP Italian Sales Manager, Ferdinando Ollino, who organised and ran the event commented “This is the first of what we hope will be a regular event in the Italian marine composite calendar. The workshop was well received with many attendees commenting on how useful the event was, both as a forum to share knowledge and as a networking event.”
