Diab plans to exhibit its contribution to two projects that have been nominated for this year’s JEC Innovation Award at the show, taking place from 6-8 March 2018 in Paris.

The first project is shipbuilder Uljanik JSC’s SIEM Cicero, a 7000-car car carrier vessel that features glass reinforced plastic composite structures for three of its cargo decks. According to Diab, it has reduced fuel consumption, increased payload and reduced production lead time. The second project, entitled LOOP 650, is a sustainable composite sailing boat that shows industrial composite manufacturing technology.

Diab will also be showcasing the company’s latest product innovations and engineering services for a number of applications, including marine, aerospace, transport and wind energy.

‘We are always looking into ways to improve our products and services and value the input from our customers, and I think that our recent awards show that we are on the right track,’ said Roger Jansson, group product and marketing manager.
