Mar 03, 2013

Eker Design and Hydrolift, both companies inside Eker Group are proud to announce that the complete development of this large scale bottle has taken place inside our company. The 0,5liter bottle were first laser scanned in our in-house 3D-scanner. Then the model were scaled to the full size 8meter. The epoxy plug where then milled in our large scale CNC milling machine. Later this milled unit were assembled and the glassfiber production at Hydrolift could create the final skin. All internal parts and equipment where then developed and installed at Hydrolift production site. The world’s largest message-in-a-bottle will be released to the ocean currents outside of Tenerife on March 13th. We do wish this wessel a happy journey! Ship Ohoi
