Resurgam Project: Robotic Survey, Repair & Agile Manufacture

RESURGAM (robotic survey, repair & agile manufacture) proposes to leverage recent ground-breaking developments in Friction Stir Welding (FSW). Launched on February 1st, 2021, this multi-disciplinary consortium representing European shipbuilding and maintenance stakeholders (ACLUNAGA, NED-Project, AISTER, GISBIR, EWF), research organizations with specialist expertise in the relevant fields (TWI, University of Limerick, University of Lancaster Joining 4 Innovation Centre (J4IC), TU Delft) and specialist industrial SMEs able to provide rapid development of prototype hardware (Forth Engineering, STIRWELD, ESI, E6)

For 36 months, across 9 countries (Belgium; Netherlands; United Kingdom; Ireland; Turkey; Cyprus; Spain; France and Poland) the project will be able to increase competitiveness and growth within the European market, particularly in international sectors, reinforcing and growing European employment and the necessary skills development for the successful uptake of innovative production processes and technologies. Many of the challenges faced by small- and medium-sized EU shipyards can be addressed by improving their productivity when fabricating new, high-technology vessels, increasing their access to the specialist repair and maintenance market.

A recent breakthrough in the tooling material research available for FSW now shows potential to enable this process for welding of steel structures with consistency. Traditionally, it has only been possible to use FSW in aluminum, so the advances in the field represent a huge opportunity to improve the productivity of European shipyards.

RESURGAM will combine FSW with the new tool material to deliver:

• The introduction of low-cost friction stir welding systems for steel that can be retrofitted to their existing Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines;

• The introduction of AI-enabled, robotic FSW systems capable of making underwater weld repairs.

These fabrication and repair capabilities, backed by the secure, digital Industry 4.0 infrastructure and techniques already widely used in the automotive and aerospace industries, will facilitate the rapid, coordinated but modular manufacture of ships and watercraft throughout Europe.

Practically, this will allow damaged ships anywhere in the world to benefit from the option of being repaired in-situ, without the need to travel to the nearest dry dock. Shipowners will be able to choose the most suitable yards to conduct their repairs rather than the nearest, and the repairs may be undertaken by yards with no dry dock of their own, thus significantly increasing the number of yards available to undertake such work. The new and improved process will be implemented by European shipyards and naval architects in Europe.

The positive economic impact of RESURGAM will generate gains in the modular construction of new ships, in modular ship maintenance, and in ship operation delivered by modular outfitting. Economic benefits will allow the use of in-water/underwater maintenance to the wider European ship maintenance sector, maximizing EU added value by appropriate means of minimizing knowledge and technology leakage.

The use of FSW for underwater and under oil welding of steel will allow us to:
– Deliver a prototype of underwater FSW (U-FSW) head capable of robotic deployment;
– Deliver an AI-enabled robotic UFSW system capable of performing inspection and underwater FSW in confined spaces;
– Deliver in yard FSW fabrication capabilities for a modular build, modifications, and retrofitting;
– Enable better connectivity and collaboration between European value chain stakeholders to drive modular and flexible manufacturing of ships and/or rapid repair, modification and maintenance of ships in water;
– Ensure improvements for AI-enabled robotic system, modular build capabilities and supporting digital infrastructure;
– Develop tailored business models to support the sustainability and commercialization of RESURGAM outputs.

Safe Shipyards with Technology Based Trainings


This project is co-funded by the European Union
and the Republic of Turkey 

Safe Shipyards with Technology Based Trainings project has started between the cooperation of Turkish Shipbuilders’ Association (GISBIR) – European Union

The IPA 2014 – 2020 (IPA II) legal framework and financial assistance are under the responsibility of DG Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, with the exception of cross-border cooperation between Member States and IPA countries. This project is being implemented under the component Development of The Occupational Health and Safety (IOHS) Grant Program. The grant program funded by the Republic of Turkey, Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Services, and monitored by The European Union, and Department of Financial Assistance. The operational beneficiary of the program is the Ministry of Family, Labour, and Social Services.

Safe Shipyards Project with Technology-Based Trainings, developed with an innovative, technology-based learning model such as virtual reality and e-learning, was created for occupational health and safety in the shipbuilding industry. Within the scope of the project, activities will be carried out for 18 months. Among the activities to be held; there will be study visits abroad, OHS (Occupational Health and Safety) commission activities, the establishment of OHS Laboratory, impact assessment report, pilot implementation activities. The goal of the project is to  shape the future and to pioneer innovation among all industries.
