World-leading expertise on engineering and technical aspects covering the life span of a ship.
Ship owners, yards and the maritime industry at large should expect more from a leading classification society than merely enforcing compliance with rules and regulations.
Our consultants possess world-leading expertise on engineering and technical aspects covering the life span of a ship, and combine the strengths of practical experience from shipbuilding and ship operations with extensive research and development in the technology challenges of the maritime industry.
Our technical consulting services cover:
Rotating machinery: Technology for low speed, medium speed and high speed machinery
Noise and vibration: Systematic evaluation of the noise and vibration levels on board all types of ships
Ship motions and wave loads: Predict and assess the motions, loads and other dynamic responses of ships in waves or related fluid flow problems
Ship stability: Investigate intact and damage stability and/or longitudinal strength according to applicable rules and regulations
Ship response and structural design assessment: Assess and document responses of the hull structure, in order to verify its strength towards yield, fatigue and buckling
Advanced structural analysis of ships: Assess and document the strength of ship structures and novel designs with respect to new material technology, accidental scenarios and extreme loads using advanced analysis tools and risk based methodologies
Gas: Feasibility and design studies of containment systems for transportation and storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG/LPG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) with focus on concept evaluation, design solutions, sloshing loads, tank strength and tank and hull response interaction.
