The construction, shipping, storage and multiple-use composite containers can include RFI tracking chips, GPS locators and solar lights. They are said to have superior strength to comparative containers, and are rodent free and stackable. The VEC containers can also be manufactured using anti-ballistic construction for use by the military in combat zones.

They have also been designed for applications such as mobile offices, mobile kitchens, tool equipment rooms and storage, sleeping quarters and shower/toilet applications.
 

Enters wind industry

 
VEC has also announced that it is entering the composite wind energy blade industry, where the company believes it can provide added value.
 
Irwin L. Jacobs, Chairman and CEO of Genmar Holdings and Chairman of VEC says: “The majority of the problems with the existing wind energy blades have had to do with the numerous inconsistencies in the traditional fibreglass blade manufacturing technique.”
 
He believes VEC’s patented closed-moulded processes for manufacturing wind blades offers “a precise and consistent manufacturing process which ensures every blade will be manufactured exactly the same.”
 
By using computer-controlled processes VEC believes blades manufactured with its technology will also be more energy efficient than existing wind blades due to VEC’s satin finish. The blades will, according to the company, be lighter, stronger and have a finish throughout eliminating the need for any sanding or painting.
 
VEC Technology is a subsidiary of Genmar Holdings Inc of Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
