Our previous blog texts introduced digital design tools designed for estimating a vessel’s lifetime, propulsion power and the energy and environmental footprint. This blog opens up the part of the digital design that is closest to the physical representation of the ship, and explains how it combines it all together. We call this part of […]
What contributed to the successful project planning of Stena Estrid? In the sequel to our project performance blog series, Jari Mäki highlights how project planning is crucial for project performance, as is proven by the case story of Stena Estrid.
Our blog series continues with a post from Jaakko Lappi that focuses on our efforts to achieve future sustainability goals, especially from the perspective of the offshore segment.
With our newest blog post, Jarkko Nurmi starts a series of articles dealing with costs management in shipbuilding and shipping industries. Read what Jarkko has to say about cost estimating during concept design phases.
In the previous blog text, we described the methods that we have for evaluating vessel environmental footprint and energy efficiency. One of their major outcomes was that the operating profile of the vessel is of extreme importance. This blog continues our digital design series by introducing DeltaSeas, which provides answers to this specific question.
This blog continues our digital design story by opening up the actual parts in our digital design toolbox. This time we are focusing on DeltaKey, the numerical representation of the processes and systems within the ship hull.
This blog shares thoughts and experiences on the challenges and possibilities of measuring project performance in shipbuilding in a new business environment. When entering a new business area such as building a more challenging ship type like passenger ships, the amount of new information is extensive.
Digitalisation is a hot topic today in ship design and operation. For ship owners and operators in general, monitoring ship performance and learning from past behaviour can result in direct savings in fuel costs or anywhere else in the logistics chain.
Traditionally, in the shipping business technology development and adaptation have been steady and incremental. The markets have been preferring proven solutions and compliance at lowest costs, and as a result the uptake of new technologies and alternative fuels has been relatively slow. This status quo seems to be coming to its end.
