Special Vessels Design

Wärtsilä Ship Design offers a broad range of specialized vessel designs. Based on our more than 50 years of experience, we design unique, dedicated vessels that meet the specific requirements of the customer.

Working in close co-operation with the owner and yard, all vessels are designed with an emphasis on low fuel consumption, a minimal environmental footprint, and safety and comfort for the crew.

Our specialized vessels portfolio comprises research vessels, tugs and workboats, and offshore wind turbine installation and maintenance vessels. We have worked for all kinds of research disciplines, including oceanographic, hydrographical, geophysical, fishery and polar research.

Wärtsilä is actively involved in the development of designs for vessels for the evolving Offshore Wind Turbine industry, and designs vessels for the entire logistical chain of an offshore wind farm.
