SIEM Cicero Wins JEC Innovation Award

20 March 2018

Diab's Divinycell core materials contributed to the JEC Innovation Award-winning Uljanik JSC SIEM Cicero project.

SIEM Cicero is a 7000-car car carrier vessel that features GRP composite structures for three of its cargo decks. The key benefits include reduced fuel consumption, increased payload and reduced production lead time.

“SIEM Cicero is the first extensive application of sandwich composite in the shipping industry, where each deck uses 125 m2 of Divinycell H100 and 475 m2 of Divinycell H80," reports Roger Jansson, Group Product & Marketing Manager at Diab. "With the use of innovative materials and technologies, we are able to reduce the environmental impact while cutting cost.”
