Building a Power Cat: Innovation – The Path Toward Excellence

27 Feb 15

Innovation is and always has been a core value for Horizon's sustainable development. As Asia's leading yacht builder, Horizon Group has continued our investments in research and development, technology and equipment throughout the years - to not only build high quality, reliable yachts for our owners, but to also be an innovative leader in our industry and to lead the way in yacht manufacturing technology. When many shipyards were still using traditional hand lamination to produce hulls, Horizon established a specialized composites corporation, Atech Composites, in 2000 to help increase the strength, integrity and safety of our hull structures. Horizon's Atech facility began using the patented SCRIMP "vacuum infusion" technology in manufacturing one-piece hulls and became the first shipyard in Asia to utilize the procedure. In 2004, Horizon developed and improved the resin infusion technology, which transforms the resin from its original 2D flow on surfaces to 3D flow. 3D flow a

Horizon Advances Hull Vacuum Infusion Technology

21 Oct 14

A Chinese saying goes, "Learning is like rowing upstream; to not advance is to fall behind." At Horizon we believe this saying is applicable in our industry; to learn and progress is imperative as a luxury yacht builder, especially in the production of safe, quality hulls. Since 2001, Horizon has utilized "vacuum infusion" technology in our hull construction, a process that applies resin evenly throughout the hull and permeates all fiberglass and coring. As our yachts increased in size, so did the need for a better control on the resin flow, which was now being infused over much larger molds; so Horizon developed an improved resin infusing system in 2004. The new system allowed resin to flow not only on surfaces but also climb up and down internal stiffeners. In May of 2004, Horizon successfully infused a 116-foot hull longitudinal girders in shot, and by the end of 2006 made a world record with the infusion of a 136-foot hull in one shot. Infusing a large hull with longitudi
