Sigmatex and Ozata Shipyard Complete ‘Ships of the Future’ Supply Agreement

August 14 2017

A four-year supply agreement between Sigmatex and Ozata Shipyard has drawn to a successful completion. Ordered by Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, Ozata Shipyard was tasked to build a series of passenger ferries to ease traffic congestion in the city.

The agreement, originally signed in 2013, led to the supply of 300 tons of NCF and UD carbon textiles over the term of the four-year project. The successful delivery of materials saw each of the 15-strong fleet completed in eight months, delivered in 90-day intervals.

The ‘Ships of the Future’ are now recognized as one of the first and most important projects of its kind in the world. Built from carbon fiber, they are significantly more environmentally friendly given their longer life expectancy, compared to a steel equivalent, combined with its lighter construction - less fuel is consumed. The ferries were constructed for use as sea transport vehicles and the final ferry in the fleet is anticipated to be commissioned by the final quarter in 2017.
