Vessel Design and Performance

BMT's extensive experience in this field has been demonstrated in its innovative vessel design and with tools that optimise vessel performance.

BMT offers a one stop solution for the customer in terms of vessel design.

From early concept design, naval architecture and detailed production design through to survey, construction support and inspection, BMT has the commercial and technical skills and capability to offer a high quality engineering service.

The group has a proven record of managing complex and innovative design briefs from feasibility through to detailed design and, in many cases, production.

When it comes to vessel performance, the successful operation of a ship depends upon a complex number of factors. Some will be totally within the ship owner's control and some, such as the weather, can only be forecast and attempts made to mitigate the impact. In both respects, knowledge and an understanding of the risk and consequences are key to optimising a vessel's performance and ensuring safe operation.
