ALUCOIL MARINE, with larcore® panels, contributes to the construction of the first fast gas-powered ferry in the world

On September 18th, the new “Fast – Ferry” of the company BALEARIA, the catamaran ship Eleanor Roosvelt, was launched.

Built by Astilleros Armón, in Gijón, this fast ferry is 123 meters long and 28 meters wide. It is built entirely in aluminium and is the first in the world to be powered by liquid gas, a great advance in the care of the environment and the marine environment.

ALUCOIL, manufacturer of advanced materials for building, industry and transport, has supplied, through OLIVER DESIGN, the company responsible for the interior fitting out, larcore® panels in different finishes, which have been installed in the bulkheads, ceilings and doors of the different interior areas of the ship.

larcore® is a sandwich panel with an aluminium honeycomb core, formed in a continuous industrial process and certified according to the international IMO MED standards for its application in the naval sector. It is an extremely light and resistant material and its excellent properties make it easy to machine and perfect for naval applications. In addition, it is very rigid, and resistant to tension and compression loads.

This is how ALUCOIL, in its commitment to industry, innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9) contributes to the creation of more sustainable and pioneering ships in the market.
