Celebrity Cruises’ New Edge class ships: Somec innovation on board
San Vendemiano, February 2017
Celebrity Cruises has launched a new generation of cruise ships where Somec innovation plays a leading role.
Somec’s innovative capacity has been rewarded with the recent agreement signed with STX France, for the realization of the staterooms glazing on the new Edge class Celebrity Cruises’ ships.
A cutting-edge project to enhance the way of living on board cruise ships, starting from the cabins, conceived to bring the outdoor feeling on the inside, with a fully glazed window towards the horizon.
Somec dedicated a qualified team of resources who worked closely with the shipyard and shipowners engineers to the study of this new product, validated also by internal tests and university labs.
Somec is investing every year a substantial part of its profits in research and development activities of new and innovative solutions for the customers, through a skilled and experienced team of engineers, designing custom products for cruise ships.
In the new internal laboratory and showroom, mechanical and hydrostatic tests (weater tightness, wind load resistance, opening cycles) as well as durability tests (salt spray chamber, climatic chamber with UV rays) are daily carried out to achieve continuous improvements.
The investments in research and innovation, pursued by Somec’s management to offer an ever more complete and efficient service to their customers to realize challenging projects, allowed Somec to become a reference partner in the market, a success confirmed by the recent partnerships.
