Offshore and Marine

Etteplan provides services covering the various stages of offshore and marine 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.

Comprehensive offering for offshore and marine industry

We take overall responsibility for the engineering project and supply the required complete solutions, including hull, electrical and interior design, FEM calculations and deck outfitting design. Etteplan's strong industry domain knowledge in hull design includes not only ships, but also floating structures, for example swimming pools and floating platforms. We effectively solve structural problems with the use of strength, vibration and fatigue analyses. Etteplan provides both global and local FE analysis as well as CFD analysis for all customer challenges. Our special expertise also includes collision analyses to simulate the damage to a ship if it were to hit an iceberg, for example.

Etteplan's wide range of competencies in the offshore and marine industry is based on in-depth industry knowledge and outstanding track record. Our customers have benefited from our flexible approach and ability to scale up the number of engineers depending on the project needs. We serve leading offshore, marine shipyard and shipbuilding companies, such as Rauma Marine Construction Ltd (RMC), Aker Arctic, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., Arctech Helsinki Shipyard and Meyer Turku, as well as smaller companies in the shipbuilding industry. 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. 

We meet the stringent requirements for technical documentation in the offshore industry

Our technical documentation services meet the requirements of the Shipdex™ Protocol, which was developed to standardize the technical and logistical data within the international shipping community. We support our customers in their compliance with the Shipdex™ Protocol through technical writing (Simplified Technical English) and technical illustration (Simplified Technical Illustrations) methods, as well as through advanced information systems and software tools. The value for the customer is based on high-quality data that is easy to manage and reuse across different publications both in print and online.
