Shipyard Compositeworks, which specialises in complex superyacht and yacht refits, has announced that it has created a new technical office.
With a growing number of complex refit projects that require a highly technical approach, Compositeworks has stated that its new office will offer technical resources that enable a ‘higher and more comprehensive level of service’. The team, now with ten members, will cover naval architecture, engineering, drawings and scanning and coatings and reporting.
The team ‘comprises a wide variety of specialists, including a naval architect with over 20 years in new build design’, according to Compositeworks. The architect will form part of the 3D scanning team, after the brand recently invested in a 3D laser scanning system, designed to enable a more accurately detailed 3D point model of refit projects.
The brand also revealed that four industry professionals with over 100 years’ engineering knowledge will make up the technical and engineering team, and there will also be a full time coatings supervisor and reporting administrator.
Jean-Michel Arnaud, who will be leading the new technical team, commented, “I’m very honoured to have been given the opportunity to steer this new department, which is made up of a team of such experienced professionals.
“It is our belief that clients will strong benefit from a greater technical approach in their refits. They can, for example, expect greater accuracy at the quotation stage of their project and a reduction in warranty exposure by reducing technical risks on important works.
“We are constantly striving to improve our services and the creation of this department will undoubtedly enhance the positive experience of our clients.”
