Cruise vessels

Throughout the history of Deltamarin, cruise vessels have always been one of the main products we have had the privilege to be involved in.

By working with all project stakeholders like ship owners, shipyards, system suppliers and classification societies, Deltamarin has been able to generate a unique centre of excellence in cruise vessel design and project management.

Starting from the conceptual design phase, where efficiency and functionality of the vessel are created, Deltamarin has developed its design procedures to deliver safe, compact and economically-sound concepts. Our R&D efforts together with our world-class hydrodynamic expertise focus on energy efficiency optimisation in ship systems. You will always receive a top-class design in terms of energy efficiency.

If your vessels operate in the Polar regions, our experience in ice conditions and winterisation give a solid basis for assessing if your project or existing vessel fulfils the Polar Code requirements. We have already audited 50 ships on safety and environmental issues.

For conversions, Deltamarin offers you a wide range of services from feasibility studies for Emission Control Areas (ECA) operations or fuel-saving modifications to full EPC package deliveries of scrubbers or ballast water treatment systems.

I’m not a typical ship designer since my background is in thermodynamics. Nevertheless, my love for the sea and the Finnish archipelago made it easy for me to say yes to Deltamarin in 2007 when they looked for someone with a new approach to improve the waste heat recovery methods for cruise ships.

Today, in my work I get to combine the major themes that characterize me and my whole career: constant development, energy efficiency and committed team work. For seeing the big picture, you often need to take a step back. Currently, I am also working as a part time research scientist. In my free time, what would be a better way of putting things into perspective than stepping into a sail boat and letting the wind take me forward!
