“Marine”

High performance

48 days, 7 hours, 44 minutes around the world!
Technology transfers have become a reality in the world of composites. For the case in point, aerospace technologies have been applied successfully to ocean racing, resulting in a sailboat circumnavigating the globe in under 50 days. This success was made possible thanks to the use of high-performance composite materials.

O

n March 20 of this year, the Groupama 3 trimaran of Franck Cammas set a new round-the-world sailing record of 48 days 7 hours 44 minutes, slicing 2 days 8 hours and 35 minutes off the previous record held by Bruno Peyron on Orange 2. This record earned Franck Cammas the much-coveted Jules Verne Trophy.

Recognised know-how
The Multiplast shipyard in Vannes, which manufactured and prepared these two super boats, called upon the expertise of Structil, as did the Lorima shipyard in Lorient which provided the mast for Groupama 3. On 7 June 2006, the launch of this maxi-trimaran measuring 31.50 m marked the launch of the 6th maximultihull to Multiplast’s name since 2000, and confirmed its status as world leader in the manufacturing of maximultihulls for trans-oceanic racing. Groupama 3 was designed by the naval architects, Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot-Prévost. The carbon prepregs, adhesive film and pultruded profiles used for the hulls, floats, crossbeams, deck, internal fittings, mast and boom were manufactured by Structil using high-resistance, high-modulus carbon fibres from Mitsubishi Rayon.

both large and small: flat parts such as flooring and bulkheads; shaped parts such as hulls and fairings; multiple parts such as crossbeams, mast foot and fittings. The trimaran is an all-carbon sandwich construction using a Nomex honeycomb core and epoxy resin. All parts were oven-cured at between 100 and 120°C, with multiple curing steps for certain parts. To this end, Multiplast has several ovens, one of which – measuring 50 m – was the biggest of its kind in Europe in 2006. The reliability of Multiplast products derives first and foremost from its ongoing quality control: control of raw

A gigantic puzzle
Groupama 3 was, and still is, a sophisticated boat that required the manufacturing of over 400 different parts,
