TENSYL has been created in april 2002 by julien Valette, Mechanical PhD.
He is providing to TENSYL both its industrial skills in design and process of composite material as well as its scientific skills based on its PhD work on the simulation of the non linear mechanical behaviour of sails.
From the beginning, TENSYL has been working on the design of composite structure for two industrial fields : railway industry and nautical industry.
In 2002, TENSYL works for ALSTOM transport on its models of CITADIS tramways, do the survey of a 40ft catamaran structure and work on the sailplan optimisation of a 60ft for the IRC rules ( yacht: Solune, RORC yacht of the year 2004 ) .
In 2003, TENSYL works with the architects Marc Lombard and Eric Levet on the structural design of the Open60 Sill and Bonduelle. Bonduelle will finish 2d of the Vendée Globe and Sill will win the 2006 route du Rhum.
In 2004, TENSYL is carrying a R&D study on some structural elements of the next generation high speed train AGV for ALSTOM transport.
In 2005, TENSYL is still working in the railway field with the structural definition of the front part of an intercity train EMU for ALSTOM transport and its supplier Defi22 Composite.
The same year, TENSYL launch an innovative project to offer to small to medium production companies a service of process simulation for infusion/injection/RTM. This project has received the support of OSEO-ANVAR, French administration for technical research.
In 2006, TENSYL is carrying a complete anaysis and definition of an RTM light process for the deck of a 35ft catamaran for Fountaine-Pajot shipyard.
Meanwhile and since 2005, the company is involved in an international sport and technical project as consultant for the Swedish team for the 32nd America's Cup at Valencia in 2007.
