Ship design

Design is about creating and shaping functionality and of course the result of this process.

We think that a good design should look good without compromising the qualities and functions of the product. The design should contribute to increase the value of the product and it's ability to generate income.

Ship design is in a continuous development and changes to adapt to new technology, new requirements from ship owners, authorities, classification societies and of course the end customer.

As ship designers we need to think smart, design smart and constantly keep pace with or be ahead of the technological development both considering how we work and technologies and equipment used for building and equipping the vessels.






We utilize modern software in our design work for drawing, modelling and calculations.

We cooperate with specialized companies for calculations such as:

  • CFD analysis
  • Model trials
  • Advanced hydraulic analysis

Skipskompetanse has certification for crane calculations and testing.




Project management and supervision

Skipskompetanse can assist as project manager for projects both where we do design and engineering work and others.

We have had several assignments of this kind for larger conversions, main engine replacement and so on from both Norway and abroad.
