The advent of the new marine renewables market, it has acted as a stimulus to naval architects to produce designs to support this new industry including:
- Crew supply vessels;
- Jack-up installation and assembly vessels;
- DP vessels for holding station in challenging conditions;
- Crane barges
There is also a market for transforming older vessels that still have a serviceable life in refit to adapt their capabilities to the more modern needs.
QED Naval supports the new build and refit design, assessment and monitoring of production.
