Preparation for Project P17 (High Speed Fuel Cell Vessel)

Reference number 2018-04870
Coordinator Jernkontoret
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 320 000
Project duration December 2018 - July 2019
Status Ongoing
Venture The strategic innovation programme for Metallic material

Purpose and goal

The purpose of the proposed project is to support the development of the demonstrator P17 - an innovative stainless steel boat construction - and at the same time provide an inspirational example of how Swedish industrial strengths can be developed along a value chain in which both large and small companies from different sectors are included. The goal is to develop production methods, eg. customized welding technology.

Expected results and effects

The results of the project are necessary for the development of a new Swedish value chain where advanced steel from not less than three Swedish steel producers can be included. The end product is a resource efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to today´s ship technology with very high export potential. Lessons learned regarding eg. collaborations, working methods and strategies can be spread to other actors in the field of innovation, thus contributing to the development of additional new value chains around metallic materials.

Planned approach and implementation

The project brings companies along a new innovative value chain that includes leading industry in Swedish strengths together. The work is done in five work packages that include project management, welding technology development, development of polishing technology, innovative processing methods and communication.
