NEWS FROM THE YARD

CORINNA – Recyclable Composites in recreational Boating

PLANNING, DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF A RECYCLABLE COMPOSITE FOR RECREATIONAL BOATING

Aim of the project and expected results
Due to the problems related to the disposal of fiberglass, the end-of-life managements of boats still has not found solutions and results in large quantities of material abandoned in ports, on the coasts and at the bottom of the sea. Faced with this problem, which, in terms of environmental sustainability, is global and increasingly important, the CORINNA project aims at developping an alternative solution to the traditional composite materials that are currently used in the nautical sector. The project provides an activity of research and characterization of new materials suitable for the design of products made of innovative materials, the industrialization of the productive process, the creation and testing of prototypes and the validation of the results obtained in comparison to traditional technology, also from the environmental sustainability point of view, through a Life Cycle Assessment study.

Sharing the passion

Today, more than 200 employees work at the Monfalcone shipyard. A wealth for Groupe Beneteau Italia, which is committed to investing in and developing its talents.

The goals: the pursuit of quality and product’s improvement, by relying on the passion, desire for continuous growth and pride of the employees.

 

GRP Production

The first step in the production of a yacht, whether sailing or motor, is the creation of its empty fiberglass hull and deck. An extremely technical step. All fiberglass components are meticulously manufactured on a modern production line, using materials and resin applied by vacuum infusion.

 

The assembly phase

Every single model is the result of a very specific assembly process, relying on a multitude of skills. Mechanics, fitters, electricians, carpenters… So many trades necessary for the exterior and interior design of a boat.

The delivery and testing phase

The launching of the boat is the most delicate phase. Afterwards, a series of tests and trials are carried out before handing over to the client. It is indeed necessary to check the performances, to control the various components and to simulate the overall functioning of the boat.

 

The supply chain and logistics

All the different production phases are fed by the supply chain, which plays a central role in serving the various production lines. Purchasing, procurement and warehouse management are thus coordinated to ensure the best possible efficiency.

Product development and support functions

The product developing functions from the interior and exterior design to the Project Management and to the Process engineering of the different elements and tools are the essential guidelines for all the production phases. Support functions such as human resources, administration, sales, after-sales and marketing are also present to run all the different shipyard activities.
