In 1986, Thyssen Nordseewerke GmbH in Emden designed, manufactured and used for the first time fibre composite components for the external structure of submarines. This innovation got things up and running: the shipyard’s own “Fibre composites” department was set up especially for submarine construction. This was the foundation for today’s Maritime Faserverbundtechnik Haring GmbH & Co. KG.
The MFH team uses fibre composites, pressure-resistant foams and other materials to produce the most complex components that meet the most exacting requirements for the construction of submarines. They include upper deck coverings, foam blocks, propeller hoods, X-rudders, acoustic windows for the German Navy, and for customers from Israel, Norway, South Africa, Italy, Singapore and Portugal.
