HydrOcean shipping

HydrOcean offers design support

in the marine field, with the use of innovative numerical simulation tools capable of accurately simulating the most simple to the most complex hydrodynamic or aerodynamic phenomena. Key benefits for our clients are the decrease of risks during offshore operations and the reduction of design studies' time schedule.

Unique CFD Platform

18 CFD engineers/Ph.Ds, 9 complementary numerical solvers, unlimited number of licenses of inhouse solvers, access to large CPU clusters, over 150 successful projects, more than 50 clients worldwide in the marine industry.

Our energy efficiency services

Reduction of fuel consumption and improvement of ship energy efficiency concerns all sectors of the maritime industry. With today's economical situation and new environmental and regulatory pressure, optimising energy efficiency is one of the most important aspect of a vessel.

HydrOcean's aim is to assist shipowners, shipyards and design offices in increasing vessel's energy efficiency and reducing their operating costs and design risks:


Our engineering services

HydrOcean evaluates and optimises hydrodynamic performances through numerical studies of many hull shapes using manual or automatic methods. HydrOcean proposes a wide range of services, including the evaluation and optimisation of hull/propeller/appendages, added resistance in waves and wave loads, maneuvering, aerodynamic drag...
