Students reinforce concrete canoe with S&P ARMO-mesh

  • S&P ARMO-mesh in concrete canoe

22 students of architecture and civil engineering built two concrete canoes at the Jade University in Oldenburg. During the planning process, the students became aware of the carbon reinforcement meshes from S&P and asked the company if it would like to participate in the project with a material contribution. For S&P Clever Reinforcement GmbH, it was of course no problem to provide the material for a project that promotes young talent and the spirit of development deserves appropriate support.

A short time later, a roll with several square metres of S&P ARMO-mesh was on its way to Oldenburg. Due to the high strength and low weight of carbon fibres, S&P ARMO-mesh is ideal for applications where every gram counts and at the same time low layer thicknesses are required. 

How the concrete canoes reinforced with S&P ARMO-mesh prove themselves will be shown on 10 and 11 June on the Beetzsee in Brandenburg: Then 77 teams from numerous countries will compete in a regatta with their 45 racing canoes made of concrete. Of course, S&P will continue to report on the project and the regatta. In the meantime, it is worth taking a look at the students' experience report (in German).
