Thor Heyerdahl

The Kiel-based three-mast schooner, “Thor Heyerdahl”, was launched in the Netherlands in 1930 as a freight motorsailer and was converted into a sailing ship with the rigging of a topsail schooner between 1979 and 1983. Since then it has served as a floating educational facility for teenagers and young adults.

During a later general overhaul and maintenance, VVG/HONSEL supported the under-deck outfitting with stainless steel blind rivets.

IAT - Institute of Aerospace Technology

At the Institute for Aerospace Technology at the University of Bremen, the Aquasonic II sounding rocket was developed as part of a student experimental rocket programme of the German Aerospace Centre and manufactured using HONSEL blind rivets.

The hybrid-powered missile that is over five metres in length and weighs 91 kg, was successfully launched in Kiruna, Sweden in March 2020 with a speed of Mach 1.2.

Team Stealth Motorsport

The local Stealth Motorsport Team is currently making a name for itself in sprint racing with a cult E36 Series BMW.

HONSEL riveting technology has made it possible here to significantly reduce weight and service time – true to the motto “riveting rather than bolting”.
