Ingenious solutions

A unique tailor-made vessel design

Saltwater ensures an efficient building principle and provides a complete engineering solution regarding vessel design. From construction technology to finite element analysis, and from wave loading to intact and damage stability analysis. We create a unique tailor-made vessel design that meets your specific needs. 

The design process of a new ship starts with the expression of the ideas by the ship operator with a particular operational aspect in mind. When the first specifications and requirements have been established, our highly-skilled engineers start with the creation of a vessel design. Often this is an iterative process to 'fit' everything into the design while maintaining technical criteria such as stability, speed and range of the ship.

It is a common format that is supported by various calculation reports and elaborated in-house generated 3D renderings. These renderings make the vessel design more tangible and convey the right feeling. An image always says more than words.

We provide:

  • Structural calculations
  • 2d/3d engineering/drafting
  • 3d visualisation/ships model design
  • Finite elements analysis
  • Wave load analysis
  • Design and development of new builds
  • FMEA
  • Feasibility studies
  • Tender support
  • System diagrams
  • Product data (Nesting)
  • Build specifications
  • Seakeeping/RAO analysis
  • Hull form development
  • Power/resistance
  • Intact- and damage
  • Stability ship manuals (SOPEP, SMPEP, CSM, BWMP, P&A, ETB, etc.)
