In mid-2020, ExoTechnologies acquired 360 Quantillion, an innovative and specialist composite materials research organisation.
This collaboration of advanced composite material expertise and specialist engineering knowledge has developed a pioneering resource efficiency technology called DANU™ which is capable of accelerating the green transition to circularity for composite material used in maritime craft, ballistic resistance, wind turbine blades, automotive solutions, aircraft construction, food processing etc.
So far, the development team has already produced a full-scoped maritime craft solution and ballistic resistant solution ready for scalable production to commercialise this novel technology.
DANU™ has exceptional strength capable of being recovered, recycled and reused repeatedly.
Get in touch with Chief Innovations Officer at ExoTechnologies, Jeroen Wats to take a dive into its mission about sustainability, resource-efficiency and circular economy.
Chief Innovations Officer at ExoTechnologies Jeroen Wats spoke to Manx Radio about their composite DANU™’s circular properties. Sit back and be amazed by this amazing invention that changes the world!
It’s breakthrough composite material of exceptional strength capable of being recovered, recycled and reused repeatedly. It is used by Ultimate Boats (check their awesome RIBs).
Well done, Jeroen!

But often it comes down to the same thing: comfort on board with the necessary “facilities” is the only thing that seems to count.
Too often that is the main selling point from the dealer especially for potential customers new to the boating world. Stating that the customer is not interested in more technical stuff is underestimating him.
I cannot stress enough that the hull is the most important part of any RIB, any boat and has to meet your expectations as good as possible. See here how the Gemini WR880 hull is being build.
In the responses of my anonymous survey on how long a RIB lasts (take it as well if you want),
I’ve sadly had to read disappointments about the RIB bought like “It was not what I expected it to be” and “I wouldn’t recommend it” and “No, I will not buy it again”
The reasons for this expensive bummer can be many things of course. But somewhere on the line information was not clearly specified enough by the customer or the dealer.
Every naval architect will tell you that every hull has its own purpose. Therefore in advance define your purpose very clear.

These RIBs are built using the revolutionary Danu™ instead of the classic GRP. It is invented by Exo Technologies and is 100% recyclable, time after time. Jeroen Wats, founder and CIO, tells all about it in this video.
