Offshore and marine

Etteplan provides services covering the various stages of ship engineering projects, for new ships and retrofits alike. We know the engineering requirements for cruise ships, ferries, RoPax vessels, cargo ships and tankers, icebreaking vessels and research vessels, and we help customers meet the technical safety requirements and regulations concerning each type of ship.

We take overall responsibility for the engineering project and supply the required complete engineering solutions, including hull, electrical and interior design, FEM calculations and deck equipment.

Our special expertise also includes collision analyses to simulate the damage to the ship if it were to hit an iceberg, for example.

Etteplan has inspected, for example, the classification drawings and FEM calculations, including forced vibration analyses prior to the commissioning of the ship, for Harmony of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship built by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
