Discover our vision of a zero-emission superyacht designed to merge leisure, education and research. Our latest blog post explores the intersection of luxury and environmental responsibility in the world of superyachts and expedition ships.
Given our already substantial experience in new energy solutions, we are well placed to help customers explore and implement wind-assisted propulsion as the green transformation of shipping moves steadily from words to action.
The use of 3D ‘digital twins’ for class approval represents a milestone in our ongoing focus on applying digitalisation to increase productivity and shorten the calendar time for ship design, writes Joonas Määttänen, project engineer at Deltamarin’s concept design department.
Read about our latest decarbonisation and digital design news from our recent development project CHEK. The EU-funded CHEK project (deCarbonising sHipping by Enabling Key technology symbiosis on real vessel concept designs) proposes to reach zero emissions shipping by reconfiguring the way ships are designed and operated today.
Read about Deltamarin’s unparalleled experience in hull form and propulsion efficiency optimisation in our latest expert blog post. Our hydrodynamic lead and senior naval architect explain how computational fluid dynamics (CFD), propulsion power predictions and new sophisticated modelling techniques are helping to squeeze out even more performance improvements amid the push to reduce carbon intensity.
Nothing had prepared us for such a rapid change in working life as the global COVID-19 pandemic forced on us. But what did this mean for managing complex international projects? Our latest blog sheds some light on the changes in our daily work life that were caused by the global pandemic.
The shipping industry is being pushed towards cleaner emissions, not least from the legislation point of view. The new EEXI and CII rules are being extended to cover practically all ships, old and new. Our newest blog focuses on our technical experience and presents how to technically cope with these rules.
The shipping industry is under a lot of pressure to cut green house gas emissions in the coming years. One of the emerging technologies that has received less attention in the maritime context is post-combustion carbon capture. We joined forces with Wärtsilä to study how the system could be implemented in RoPax ferries.
The final part in our small series on low-carbon ship design presents a case story involving the process of modelling and evaluating energy efficiency in a new-build project. The project we are focusing on is the new and beautiful Viking Glory by Viking Line.
Currently, hydrogen and ammonia are the only two truly zero-carbon alternatives for ship fuel. Hydrogen is the alternative that requires more fundamental new-thinking, especially if considering fuel cells as the power plant solution. In the second part of our low carbon story, we present in brief our own hydrogen-fuelled ship design.
