Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009: new bow section for Delta Llyod

Delta Lloyd team will be able to restart the race from Rio de Janeiro in the next leg 6 of VOR: ERF has completed the remanufacturing of the damaged hull section in the bow area, which will be replaced on site by Delta Lloyd shore team as soon as delivered in Brasil.

ERF technical team, managed by Fabio Rusconi and Alessandro Servadei, has manufactured a master model in polystyrene, reproducing the hull area to be replaced. The master was then CNC milled and laminated with carbon fibre. The 12 sqm surface manufactured will be finally cut out to the required dimensions of the bow section for its final replacement..
