TechnoNICOL enters the market of shipbuilding insulation

TechnoNICOL enters the market of shipbuilding insulation
29.07.2016

In June 2016, TechnoNICOL launches production of stone wool technical insulation for shipbuilding at the Ryazan TECHNO plant. Today, the key players in the segment are foreign companies, which meet over 80% of the domestic demand. With plants located throughout Russia, the company is capable to increase the share of domestic products to 30% in the nearest future.

The shipbuilding market imposes higher requirements in part of materials. The available solutions must be non-flammable and must correspond to the rules and codes of the International Marine Organization (IMO), the Marine register for shipping and the Inland water register of Russia. The boards and mats of TechnoNICOL meet the preset requirements and combine characteristics that make difference for the shipbuilding sector, such as high thermal performance, low density and good soundproofing qualities.

«The historical modernization of the marine fleet according to the state Shipbuilding development program in 2013–2030 is intended to improve the competitive position of the Russian shipbuilding industry in the world and serve the needs for modern products», states Irek Allayarov, director general of the Mineral insulation department at TechnoNICOL. «We are convinced that our production for the shipbuilding stone wool insulation will make the homegrown developments closer to the marine and inland water fleet. Our extensive experience and professional team will encourage us to become one of the leading suppliers of technical insulation for shipbuilding».

The stone wool insulation for shipbuilding can enhance the company’s position in the corresponding Russian, European and Asian branches of the market.
