International maritime exhibition "Asia Pacific
Maritime (APM) 2010" will be held in Singapore from
24th Wednesday until 26th Friday of March, 2010, to which
we, Imabari Shipbuilding Group, are participating as a
member of the Cooperative Association of Japan Shipbuilders.
Asia Pacific Maritime is the most famous maritime exhibition
in the Asian region, to which many shipbuilders and marine
machinery & equipment manufacturers are taking part
from all over the world, in order to appeal their products
and activities toward international shipping and shipbuilding
We exhibit a model of "Safety Bow", which is
bulbous bow specially designed and developed in collaboration
with Nippon Steel Corporation. This Safety Bow is characterized
by its superior deformation capacity and impact energy
absorption in case of collision. Even when the vessel
collided with other vessel, the damage will be minimized
on both vessels. We explain about it at our APM booth
using the model and panels. We also introduce our effort
for reduction of environment load, improvement of vessel's
safety by applying newly developed steel plate etc.
You will find our introduction DVD, model ships and photo
panels of ships built by us, and we sincerely wish many
people will visit our booth Asia Pacific Maritime 2010.
