Owners and operators are currently relying on Houlder to design and procure complex ships that meet their organisation’s environmental goals and the highest regulatory and industry standards (MARPOL/IMO/Flag State). Examples vary from passenger ferries through military supply vessels to ice-class research vessels. Examples of technologies include electric-hybrid and LNG dual fuel propulsion, HVAC energy recovery, ballast water management and noise reduction.
Our capabilities include concept and detailed design; performance modelling and analysis; shipyard tendering and selection; specification of equipment and client representation and works supervision. Recent vessels include the Victoria of Wight Electro-Hybrid Ferry, Glenn Sannox LNG Dual Fuel Ferry and RRS Sir David Attenborough. The company is also acting as technical advisor to the UK Ministry of Defence’s current new build projects.
Our naval architects, marine engineers and project managers are well placed to deliver vessels that use the most innovative clean technology, including hybrid, all electric, LNG and low sulphur fuelling, to achieve owner environmental and performance goals.
