WEBB testimonial

“When we started planning the design and build of the southern hemisphere’s first all-electric high performance ferry, it was critical for us to have technology partners on board who shared our vision and had similar experiences in other ground-breaking projects. Gurit, with its long history in the marine sector, was the obvious choice for our composite materials supply and structural engineering design. “
