Modular composite structures
Founding Year: 2012
Location: The Netherlands
Composites are increasingly important in industries to save weight and fuel and to add durability and sustainability to structures. But production is too expensive. MOCS developed a new joining technique.
This joining technology is unique, as it is possible to prepare joints in the factory, join them in-situ and still create a strong primary bond. With this joining technology the production process can be more efficient and costs are saved during production and transportation. By using this technology it becomes possible to accelerate a wider use of composites in industries.
MOCS focus is pipes, ships and offshore renewable structures. We developed a modular tidal energy ocean mill and a modular ship concept. MOCS will make durable, light and sustainable composite structures affordable!
