Ship concepts, optimisation and performance verification
A broad range of vessels are used for building or operating infrastructures: dredgers, escorting tugs, harbour and anchor handling vessels, pilot ships and rock-dumping vessels. The fact that these vessels need to operate in shallow water and have a wide range of payload make them very challenging to design and to operate.
The right databases, tools, numerical simulations and experimental facilities can help you make the right choice based on functional requirements, mission statement or operational profile. Our support includes the evaluation of hull types, propulsion systems, propulsion train and energy supply, control devices and operability, as well as their verification prior to building them. We can even help you to evaluate different strategies to reduce CO2 emissions or to work towards zero emission ships.
