The InfraCore Helideck project was nominated due to the impressive impact resistance which has been achieved. The InfraCore Helideck proved able to resist multiple impact tests of 1500 kg, surpassing helicopter loads. The Helideck also proved fire-resistant, surpassing one hour of full-scale fire testing. Additionally, the composite Helideck is lightweight which makes it easy to install or move to a different location.

InfraCore Company is the specialist and market leader in extremely robust load bearing FRP structures for the infrastructure market. The company’s InfraCore® technology is patented worldwide and applied in many countries around the globe.

The InfraCore Helideck project is part of an increasing trend to use composite for various solutions in the maritime industry. Composite has been found to be an ideal material due to its design flexibility, robustness, and resistance to corrosion and fire. Together with the EU-funded project RAMSSES (Realization and Demonstration of Advanced Material Solutions for Sustainable and Efficient Ships), InfraCore is involved in several composite developments for the maritime industry, including a rudder flap for a container ship.  By using Innovative and lightweight materials such as composite, RAMSSES has found that life cycle and maintenance costs can be reduced significantly in the Maritime industry.
