This issue showcases how we are shaping the future of innovative ship design. It’s no secret (and no surprise) that we have been at the forefront of maritime innovation for decades, with ship design built into our very DNA.Read and download
Ship design is at the very heart of what we do, and our global teams continue to drive innovation across the industry.
Designing a vessel for a pioneering offshore wind project in Japan required BMT to work to new rules.
At a time when progress in technologies provides only marginal gain in terms of reducing operating cost and environmental footprint, should the traditional ferry paradigm be challenged once more?
The future is closer than we think, in fact it is right now. The future is what we will do when we finish reading these words. It is an hour away, a minute away, a second away. The actions we take today are the future. With this perspective, how would we create a future superyacht, today? What technology would we employ to deliver on the known certainties of the future, and yet avoid obsolescence from the uncertainties we don’t know?
Artificial intelligence has for decades been rumoured to revolutionise ship design and change the ways we work forever. However, apart from improving Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools, the creation of ship general arrangements is relatively the same as it was in the 1980s.
The requirement to reduce maritime emissions in the next decade has brought this reality ever closer; it is not something to drop into the pending tray. If we do not make plans now, we stand little chance of even scratching the surface of the targets.
One of the most significant challenges of warship procurement is the need to keep pace with technological developments and changing strategic contexts.
