“Warsash Maritime Academy (part of the Maritime and Technology Faculty of Southampton Solent University) provided original plans for a 365m long, 13,300 TEU ship to CML in order to produce a model for ship handling training.
Using 3D software, CML modelled the ship layout to be operated from on board by students. They carried out the naval architecture as well as the structural design, to achieve the correct design ratios for a 1/25 th scale model of the real ship named ‘Resolution’.
The scale ship was constructed using traditional boat building methods, high quality marine plywood sheathed in epoxy/e-glass resulting in a very strong and durable composite structure.
This project is a great success and we are currently undertaking comprehensive ‘sea trials’. We are already in the process of carrying out a further scale model project with CML.”
