Mechanical engineering

Thanks to our long experience of engineering specialist commercial and naval vessels, we can deliver excellent capabilities in mechanical and systems engineering. Critically we undertake whole-vessel engineering from concept to production design, enabling us to distinguish ourselves in the following areas:



We have particular expertise in the design of the full range of propulsion systems, and we keep fully abreast of new technologies and the range of possible alternatives.

We can help you select and configure the optimum propulsion system to achieve any range of system performance criteria, be it efficiency, flexibility, noise and vibration or any combination of these requirements. Having worked with the industry's leading and most innovative suppliers, we develop our designs with inputs from multiple stakeholders to deliver the most effective, highest -value and lowest-risk designs possible.

As well as developing main propulsion systems and associated machinery space arrangements, we can plan and lay out all auxiliary machinery spaces, from providing support and guidance to shipyards in early-stage space planning, to preparation of final spatial arrangements for production.

We have the capability to develop the full suite of auxiliary system schematics, using either the accepted philosophy of standard system arrangement or challenging the status-quo with new arrangements tailored for energy conservation, zero discharge, integration of new technology or the improvement of operational effectiveness, ease of maintenance and redundancy.

Our team’s experience extends beyond desk-based design and engineering to providing build support during installation, commissioning assistance and in-service consultancy.
