Influencing the future direction of ship design

Ship design is at the very heart of what we do, and our global teams continue to drive innovation across the industry.

Energy transition

As the importance of climate change and its impacts are understood, the consequences will be felt by us all. We are already seeing the market demanding emissions reduction as the global shipping industry adapts to meet future regulations. Over the next 30 years, we expect innovation to accelerate and for enablers such as autonomous technologies to be increasingly adopted, allowing the global shipping industry to reduce its environmental impact, also becoming more efficient.

Autonomous ships

To complement our ship design offer and the move towards autonomous vessels, we support the development of maritime autonomous systems collision avoidance regulations. Our ship simulator REMBRANDT is at the cutting edge of autonomous navigation. We're also partnering with Zulu Associates to look at autonomy in short sea shipping.
