Operational Support and Optimization

We support operating groups by providing practical training for operators and engineers, safety inspections, and code compliance audits.

We provide a wide range of services to owners, charterers, and shipyards involved in new construction or conversion of ships, especially liquefied gas carriers and other unique, high value, and high complexity marine assets.

From concept development through to trials and commissioning, our experienced marine professionals safely deliver the vessels you need on schedule and budget.

LNG Cargo System & Fuel Systems Design

With the drive towards lower emissions in global shipping, we bring over 25 years of engineering and supervision services in LNG shipbuilding to design LNG-fueled propulsion system solutions for a wide range of ship types and sizes.

We specialize in retrofit and newbuild evaluations, conceptual design through detailed engineering, regulatory compliance process with class & authorities specifications & bid evaluations.

Sustainability Strategy

We define, evaluate and assist clients in effectively implementing the best sustainability options to meet global mandates and achieve company targets. Whether it’s solar, wind, or emerging options involving hydrogen, our approach considers the technical, economic, and operational feasibility of both the short and long term in the context of the overall portfolio.

Our support spans the energy value chain, covering new projects as well as upgrades to existing facilities.
