Naval engineering

Naval engineering to define improvements to the hull of the vessel. This has resulted in the very efficient hull forms and high block factors of trailing suction hopper dredgers for shallow waters, high speeds and/or for high current speeds, and the fuel-efficient hulls of the IHC Supporter® class offshore construction vessels. The hull shapes of IHC’s custom-built offshore vessels have an excellent and proven track record in terms of workability– and the level of customer feedback is translated into future designs. Similar naval engineering is performed for the benefit of many IHC customers.
