Intercad Design and Engineering over the years acquired very skilled and experienced naval architects and ship designers to occupy a serious role in the European ship-design market. Intercad Design and Engineering has done many classification and detail design documentation for various types of vessels. Seismic research vessels, offshore support and construction vessels, short sea vessels, anchor handling tug supply vessels, heavy offshore vessels, standby rescue vessels, cargo vessels, cable laying and repair vessels and passenger cruiser has been a scope of design over many years.
Experienced Ship Designers
During this exciting phase we listen carefully to our clients and support them by translating their ideas and questions into a highly efficient and innovative vessel that exceeds their expectations. The vessel characteristics and performance are narrowly determined by our client in cooperation with our team of naval architects and engineers.
When the concept design is finalized our client receives a full package of documentation that will support future yard tenders.
We have developed a unique and effective way to generate classification drawings from a raw 3D structural model. This 3D model is prepared according to the requirements extracted from the in house developed strength analysis and stability booklet.
From the raw model we extract the classification drawings and required reports (weight, material specification, etc.) Possible update’s or changes of the classification drawings can easily be corrected through 3D model utilization. After receiving approval from the concerned register the same model is further used as base for the continuation of detail design.
We will develop good ships here; At a profit if we can, At a loss if we must...
but always good ships.
Detail engineering from origin is the backbone of our organization. Many years of knowledge and hands-on experience is implemented in to our system. The quality of detail engineering plays a crucial role in the shipyard’s ability to build vessels efficiently and cost effective.
Our engineers are putting great effort in their work to assure quality of the delivered engineering package. Developing the construction details for ship build friendly solutions is recognized by our clients worldwide and highly appreciated. The provided E-browser is an ideal tool for our clients to daily witness the progress made in their project.
Machinery / piping
During the build of a vessel the piping installation as well as outfitting are in close cooperation with the steel production. This is the same during the detail design stage where the hull department and machinery piping department are closely working together in the same model real time. The machinery department and outfitting department continuously receive an updated model from the steel department saving both time and ensuring that the overall design process evolves efficiently.
A vessels interior will have great influence on the level of comfort experienced by the crew. The often limited spaces available require maximum creativity and ingenuity from our interior designers in order to deliver aesthetic and practical developed accommodation areas. Besides aesthetics and comfort the interior needs to meet the highest safety standards according to the latest safety regulations. We assure you that our interior designers have many years of experience knowing the latest regulations and understanding what our clients and partners look for.
Conversions and Modifications
Ship conversions and modifications are frequently requested by our clients and partners. Over the years we have been involved in numerous of different projects concerning different ship types such as passenger vessels, roro vessels, container vessels and more. Especially concerning conversions and modifications practical shipbuilding knowledge is crucial in order to be able to advise our clients and partners about how to work as effective as possible.
We offer the possibility to convert your 2D image in to a Photorealistic visualization, making it much more easy to review certain areas for example. We provide accurate 3D photorealistic renderings of interiors and exteriors , animations, flythrough and interactive 360° panoramas of the highest quality can be delivered.
The process begins by creating a 3D model of the concerned area or ship. After modelling light, materials and any features that enhance the realism and detail of the images are applied. All features and details are discussed with our clients and preview images are supplied for feedback before we render the final images. Interior images can be customized to an exact match of the furnishings and decorations that will be installed on the vessel.
Developing and building new vessels can be a challenge for any shipyard, ship-owner or ship design company. Therefore it could be of added value when additional expertise can be hired through the support of our team members. We are ready to deliver onsite support on all disciplines however in some occasions clients more appreciate to join our design team in one of our two offices. Our staff of engineers are well trained and used to work in an international environment closely together with shipyards and owners all around the world.
