Windfarm support vessel

Concept and Preliminary Design

BMT supports operators and shipyards by developing bespoke vessel designs to meet a specification for speed, performance, range, seakeeping and efficiency.

Working with the customer, BMT will develop the concept and preliminary design to fully meet the functional requirement. The company's ability to undertake the whole vessel engineering from concept though to detailed production design allows us to add significant value in the early stages of design development in order to ensure that the final design is practical and feasible without compromising the original intent.

With an intimate knowledge in the design of steel, aluminium and composite structures combined with state of the art computational software we have been responsible for some of the world's most advanced marine structures and can offer designs for the most challenging of requirements. Our team of mechanical engineers have the tools and experience to design the most suitable and efficient machinery and systems that operate to exacting specifications.

Where concept designs are based on new or novel technology, advanced engineering or innovative naval architecture solutions we are able to bring our extensive experience and results of research in the other marine markets to bear, allowing us to cross-fertilise ideas and technology in a collaborative manner and foster innovation.

Whatever the needs of the customer, when it comes to technical support at the preliminary design stage, BMT has the breadth and depth of knowledge required to develop practical and feasible engineering solutions for a concept without compromising the original design requirements.

The company has an outstanding reputation in hull-form design and development and our and experience results in vessels that offer good sea-keeping ability, low resistance and high propulsive efficiency. Additionally our background in configuring conventional and high-tech propulsion systems coupled with the integration of active stabilisation and dynamic positioning systems allow us to provide high level capability for the most demanding owners.

With an intimate knowledge in the design of steel, aluminium and composite structures combined with state of the art computational software we have been responsible for some of the world's most advanced marine structures and can offer designs for the most challenging of structures.
