UNSW and Omni Tanker find a winning formula in advanced composite manufacturing

Researchers at the UNSW-based Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre for Automated Manufacture of Advanced Composites (AMAC) and industry partner Omni Tanker, have successfully reduced production and maintenance costs of the company’s specialised chemical transport tanks for aggressive corrosive and high purity oxidising liquids. The breakthroughs will shore up the company’s position as the market leader in Australia and enhance export market success.

AMAC’s Director, UNSW Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Professor Ganga Prusty, said Omni Tanker approached his team to help accelerate new process developments for carbon fibre reinforced polymer tanks, to strengthen the company’s competitive edge over traditional steel and fibreglass tankers in US and European markets.
