Vessels are valuable assets. Investements, which need to pay of and meet the requirements. Since 1994 we design and construct vessels - especially passenger -, cargo-, cruise-, ferry-, and special vessels. We have a full overview and great experience in those vessels from the brigde till the engine room. We use the latest technology to develop the most significant designs, suiting to your demands.
We design and create new ships of all types. From small, robust ferries and passenger ships to large tankers and special solutions such as mobile exercise facilities.
From the general plan sketch to the finished ship design. We always work in close consultation with the customer, taking into account his special wishes and bringing them into line with all the important shipbuilding requirements.
The end result is a design that combines what is technically feasible, what makes economic sense, what is legally permissible and what is aesthetically best.
The purpose of the concept design is to develop the first vessel design for the ship owner in order to be able to check the required investment and the feasibility of the intended vessel concept. The starting point for the feasibility project is usually the client's business plan or basic description of the intended vessel and the service.Read more
With a prototype vessel, it is essential that the project is well defined before approaching yards. One purpose of the basic design is the development of the concept and design materials to a level that is suitable for a shipyards tendering purposes. On the other hand the basic design is to develop the project in order to achieve approvals from the classification society, flag state, other related authorities. At the same time, the project will be technically defined in such a manner, that a contractual documentation can be produced.Read more
The construction phase is based on a client and authority approval. All details for the building process will be sorted out adapted for the shipyards building strategy. The systems will be coordinated within the shiphull and optimal positions for them are located. Special equipment for the vessels tasks is being developed. All together the data will be provided production processes.
The purpose of the detail design phase is to combine each engineering discipline from the basic design process into an integrated design. All systems, plants, pipes, machinery and outfitting will be integrated into the ship model and its metal structure.Read more
All integrated assemblies are aligned to each other. The models of each system and the structure are being prepared for the building process. Workshop drawings, part lists, spools and cuttingfiles are created.Read more
By this time we became the counterpart in all questions regarding shipbuilding. National, and also international. We offer our services to shipyards, shipowners, contracting authorities and private clients. Over the development from tender packages, to simulation driven desgins, via detailed constructions and the building supervision we can cover the whole ship development process for you.

Over the last decades we were able to built up the skills and tools to serve our clients in almost any challenge in the marine engineering and naval architects sector. Since 1994 we have realized more than 1000 projects, reaching from small concepts, over simulations till complete work shop drawings.
In the following categories we give you an impression of what we are capable of.
Together with our clients we need to be ahead of time, in every meaning.
Our mission is to rapidly change the maritime industries course towards sustainability by dedication and innovative solutions.
We help our clients to build better ships, become sustainable, and run better because of it.
Our portfolio of services and designs, guarantees better opex and capex for new vessels, as well as existing ones.
Our highly skilled and dedicated team of engineers, supervisors, and project managers are passionate about making it happen, a sustainable maritime industry, NOW.
The start of a ship development process is defined by a structurized collection of data, requirements, informations and boundary conditions. We developed a customized process out of this to gather the needed input, from our client and with our own measurements, in a smooth and efficient manner.
To set a efficent framework for a desing task, the collected input needs to be processed. This gives us the oportunity to define sharp borders for the design space in the necessary locations and to give room for creative solutions at the same time.
Our highly educated and skilled experts are equiped with the best design tools which are available in the market. With a strong integration of simulations into the design process we can over the best designs and solutions for your tasks.
