Oslo, 14 November, 2019 Light Structures AS, the world leading supplier of fiber optic condition monitoring systems based on Fiber Bragg Grating technology (FBG), is pleased to announce that we have gone into an agreement with Lungteh Shipbuilding, for delivery of Hull Stress Monitoring System for 3 Wave Piercing Catamarans for the Taiwan Navy. This will be the first delivery within the Asian navy in Light Structures AS history. The Tuo Chiang-class corvette (Chinese: 沱江; literally: 'Tuo River') is a Taiwanese-designed class of fast and stealthy multi-mission corvettes built for the Republic of China (Taiwan) Navy. It is designed to counter the numerous and increasingly sophisticated People's Liberation Army Navy ships by utilizing hit-and-run tactics, and thus featured clean upper structure design with very few extrusions to reduce radar signature, pre-cooled engine exhaust to reduce infrared signature, and a reduced visual signature to reduce chance of detection. The first system will be delivered in April – 2020 The second system will be delivered in September – 2023 The third system will be delivered in March - 2024 Total contract value: €283 300 (€934 500 with options) Niklas Hallgren Chief Executive Officer Light Structures
