IHB Ship Design in numbers – 15 years of experience, 80 in-house engineers, 400+ completed projects
IHB ShipDesign’s services cover every stage of the engineering process. From concept thru detail design, our main goal is to create solutions that are flexible and adaptive.
In this dynamic phase, we support our clients with translating their thoughts and ideas into realistic Concept Designs.
Together with the practical user experiences from our clients and the expertise of our naval architects and engineers we come to a high sustainable concept design. Our concepts are prepared by out-of-the-box thinking coupled with practical operational experience for the vessel type, thus ensuring that the need and comfort of those who finally operate the vessel are taken into account. This allows the ship-owner to make the most well-informed decision on the investment.
Basic engineering includes the fixation of the initial design. In this phase, our engineers will already develop a 3D model from where class information can be extracted allowing us to have a head start with the detailed design phase. There also is an opportunity to optimize the hull by using CFD calculations. Together with additional calculations, system diagrams, and safety plans a solid base is provided for successful building. Оur continued working relationships with many Classification Societies also ensures we fully briefed and knowledgeable of current Class and regulatory requirements.
During the detail design all experience, knowledge, and best practice are implemented in our system. The detail engineering and provision of production information is the last step before steel cutting and building of the vessel commences. We fully realize that the quality of detail engineering is an important factor in the shipyard’s ability to build vessels efficiently, cost-effectively, and fast.
Working in close contact with our clients ensures easy alterations, build friendly solutions, and top quality engineering in line with shipyard norms and standards throughout the whole process.
