3D-printing of Safe at Seas RescueRunner

Large Scale Additive Manufacturing of RescueRunner by Safe at Sea

The purpose of the LSAM-SAFE project is to redesign and manufacture the Safe At Seas RescueRunner through large-scale 3D printing to optimize strength and light weight. The material will be a composite material consisting of recycled fishing nets (polyamide) and reinforcement material, e.g. carbon fiber or fiberglass.

The purpose of the LSAM-SAFE project is to develop a lighter design and more sustainable production of the sea rescue vessel The RescueRunner, for Safe at Sea AB, and to take steps towards a more circular value chain.

LSAM-SAFE will fulfill this purpose by developing a fiber-reinforced, recycled polymer composite material and developing a lighter RescueRunner design using the Sustainable Large-Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) method. RescueRunner's environmental footprint will be significantly reduced throughout its lifetime as the project will lead to a more circular manufacturing framework that produces a more sustainable complex shaped, high performance, high speed hull structure.

The project has the following goals: 1) develop and test the mechanically recycled material for additive manufacturing, 2) create a lightweight RescueRunner design to be printed using large-scale additive manufacturing, 3) print the RescueRunner in the experimental recycled material, and 4) promote the circular economy by recycling marine polymer waste into LSAM feedstock, as well as developing knowledge, calculating and demonstrating the value of circularity and AM.
