CompoWorld annual conference

The last annual conference ''Composites Production'' was a great success. During these days we announced our order to produce ship doors (to be produced in 2015) for an Italian shipyard. Watch this film clip for more information.

Furthermore, VABO Composites as a company was rewarded with an innovation voucher for the development of a flexible mould system allowing to produce several products in a single mould system.

We received another voucher, shared with Hoekman Shipbuilding, for the Master Plan Sustainable Fisheries. This voucher is to develop a modular system for a composite wheelhouse for fishing vessels.
We look back at a very successful annual conference in 2014.

Megayacht radarmast

VABO Composites worked in recent time on a large scale international project. With 12meters tall and 230m2 the project was enormous. In cooperation with Mouldcam Heerenveen who performed the complete engineering and construction of direct molds VABO was responsible for the construction and assembly of the fiber-reinforced radar mast including all the piping.

The mast is constructed from two semicircular uprights in which three platforms for the radar domes and electronics. The parts are assembled before transportation by sea to the yacht at the wharf.

We, as VABO Composites are very proud to be able to make a product like this radar mast for a foreign leading international wharf. Such large scale complex fit perfectly into our strategy.
