Competitive advantages

Industrial experience has intensively sharpened our quality awareness. Designing ships at a shipyard means facing the consequences of one’s actions within the same company. In this environment, drawings and specifications are not just theoretical documents but must lead to a technically functioning, buildable and economical product. With this understanding we also develop products for our clients as a sipd design company.

The ideal business partner is involved in ferry shipping and requires support for a fleet renewal programme. He is looking for innovative, bespoke and efficient solutions for safe, future proof and sustainable operations and he would like the entire development process to be well-structured and managed by proven, experienced experts.
