TECHNOLOGY

NAVAL ARCHITECTURE

The design of a new model or the modification of an occasion is done by our naval architects. Qualified and equipped with powerful IT resources, these specialists are able to model performance even before launching.

HYDRODYNAMISM

Naval hydrodynamics studies the resistance of ships to advance. The resistance to advancement corresponds to the thrust force that our propellers will have to produce. The modelling of hydrodynamic phenomena requires tank test and numerical simulation.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Our energy engineers ensure that the energy performance of Couach boats is improved. This makes it possible to understand the interactions between the different systems integrated in the boat and to develop alternative innovative solutions.

STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING

The objective for our structural engineers is to study different processes, design, materials, gluing in order to facilitate the work of the companions and to dimension our structures precisely.

COMPOSITE ENGINEERING

Composite materials are lightweight and have excellent performance in the marine environment. The properties of these materials are used to replace more traditional technologies. Our R&D department has therefore designed a new process for assembling hull and composite structure.

COMMUNICATION

Communication is the last step in the process. It will allow us to detail and illustrate our products in order to inform and give the desired answers in a more in-depth way.

HYBRID AS AN ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH

 

Couach aims to be the driving force behind the yachting industry towards technological innovation and environmental protection. In a rapidly changing market, this shipyard intends to position itself as a leader in energy development. We want to participate in the solutions of tomorrow that will be offered on board composite boats around the world.

CONCEPT BOAT

 

The R&D Department is working on the use of new technologies (hybrid engine, concept boat).
With this in mind, they decided to recycle an existing spare hull from a 17-meter military vessel to build an experimental & Labotary vessel.

ROBOTIC CUT OUT PROCESS

 

The automation of tasks in the shipyard is not yet applied.
Only the ability of the workers is used.
In a goal of quality improvement and standardization for mass production, an automation of specific tasks is desirable

BONDING OF COMPOSITE STRUCTURE

 

In order to obtain high strength and low weight composite boat, R&D Department designed a new process to assemble composite Hull and Structure.
Structural bonding offers benefits to improve boat performances.

TANK TEST

 

The Tank Test is a tool that allows to study the behaviour of the models of the boats that we want to build and observe their drag.
Couach compares different hulls to optimize time and expense.

RUDDER

 

The rudder is an appendix located under the boat and used to manoeuvre it. Our yachts are composed of two each.
We studied a manufacturing process that could be carried out on site and that would give good mechanical properties.

FIRE TEST

 

In order to replace the silica wool used in fire protection in engine rooms, Couach is testing new insulating composite materials called “intumescent” materials.
