The World's Biggest Carbon-Composite Catamaran Passenger Ferry was built by a Turkish comany. It is being built by OZATA Ship Yard in Yalova. This video briefly shows the process of the construction of the subject vessel. Some comments from the Design Engineer of the project:"...We first draw two and three dimensional models of the ferry at designing office. We prepare three-dimensional models of all parts of the ferry, then conduct resistance calculations and analyses of the completed models. Later, we send the analyzed products to our colleagues at the purchasing department through our server and buy necessary pieces. After that, we send technical drawings of the product or the necessary details to our colleagues at the manufacturing department and ensure their production". Production Engineer:"...The fiber we use in ferries with the capacity of 420 passengers thatwe built for Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is full carbon fiber produced by using vacuum infusion technology. In this sense, we are the first shipyard in Turkey and among the limited number of shipyards in the world. The manufacturing in our composite line is as follows - the carbon fiber enters our workshop as a fabric, then leaves our shipyard as a ship. This is the process."
