As the worldwide interests and pressures for environmental concerns grow, savings on fuel consumption and fuel emissions are becoming increasingly more important. We are seeing a high demand in our services for critical elements such as weight saving, performance predictions and ship optimisation for more and more design projects.
We also have a strong desire to apply our skills and technology to contribute to the development and improve the performance of wind or ocean energy structures as we firmly believe that the future of our planet relies on sustainable energy sources.
As we expand our services, we are delighted to welcome two new junior engineers to join our CFD specialist technical team. They will be trained in-house to assist with research and development, developing programming tools and project management.
