SSCS readies new Mats for EU funded project

SSCS has completed manufacture of Frond Mats with varying Frond heights ready for the next stage of the EU funded SASMAP project.

SASMAP’s purpose is to develop new technologies and best practices in order to locate, assess and manage Europe’s underwater cultural heritage in a more effective way than is possible today.

Our Frond Mats are being used to protect the sites from the effects of strong currents by slowing the current speed in close proximity to the artefacts.

More information on the project can be found at, and the latest report is attached to this article along with some additional photos.
