Engineering

Superior engineering, modern design and state-of-the-art technology are the foundation of what distinguishes a Swiftships vessel.

Swiftships engineering continues a long tradition of innovation in ship design.  State-of-the-art engineering software has been customized to support 3D Pipe Routing of the latest ABS approved light weight piping system.  A new software tool was developed to numerically optimize boat weight against the ABS rules. 

Utilizing friction stir welding yields higher allowable design margins for reduced weight while providing less warping in the shell plate. This reduces manufacturing labor hours.  With experienced engineers on staff full time, innovation and integration with manufacturing is not just good for business, it is who we are!

Performance. Service. Reliability.

Working Harder. Working Better. Achieving More.

The Engineering Department at Swiftships produces technical designs to international specifications and standards – American Bureau of Shipping, United States Coast Guard, Mil-Standard, inter alia. State-of-the-art CAE and CAD systems are among the many design tools employed to create functional design models for all watercraft. When necessary, some facets of engineering are outsourced to design experts with particular specialties for individual project requirements.

With over seven decades of production, the varied Swiftships hulls still in service to this day serve as a testament to the longevity and excellence of the Swiftships engineering design team.

At Swiftships, we can apply our modular engineering and construction expertise to a diverse range of projects for clients engaged in the upstream and downstream sectors of petrochemical industry. With our world-class engineering team, Swiftships pre-fabricates modules that are ship-able and installed either fully assembled in the field or in kits to be built by clients in any part of the world.
