Ship Design

Feasibility study

A thorough feasibility study is often a critical factor for the future success of a project. We visualize and formulate ideas for a preliminary marine design. A convincing presentation, based on reliable facts and figures, is our goal in the development of a feasibility study.

Concept design

A concept design is a revised development of the feasibility design and main dimensions. The result of a concept design is a GA and a specification that is detailed enough for a shipyard to be able to tender an estimate. This allows the ship-owner to make a decision on investment or to present the concept to investors and other interested parties.

Contract design

A contract design follows on from the concept design and gives the customer an adequately detailed basis for a new-building contract with the shipyard to be signed. During this phase results of previous work can be established and the shipyard can quote a fixed price.

Basic design

FKAB is your basic design partner during contact with authorities and classification societies. We do all calculations and studies necessary, provide projections and documents, and act as mediators. We have long experience of close cooperation with Swedish and with international yards. We can assist with everything regarding drawings and documents required by authorities and classification societies.

Detail design

During the detail design stage we quickly and efficiently produce complete designs, project support, calculations and design visualizations. Effective detail design is particularly important with regard to re-building, special constructions and smaller projects.
The construction of ships for the future demands a logistical holistic approach as well as optimization of energy efficiency and reduction of environmental impact. Within FKAB Marine Design we work with solutions for enhancing the overall performance of ships, reducing the environmental footprint, new and more environment-friendly fuels and designs that reduce fuel consumption and improve both the load capacity and the cargo handling capacity.

A vessel is also a workplace where ergonomics, occupational health and safety are important factors. We design vessels that allow people to develop and thrive in their jobs.

The FKAB designs are the essence of our company. They demonstrate our abilities and flexibility when it comes to ship design. All designs shown under the different categories below are designed by FKAB. Most of them are also owned by FKAB and fully available to any client. If you find any of these designs interesting, please contact us for more information.
