Research & Development

C-Job Naval Architects has a dedicated Research & Development department which works closely with our project teams to incorporate out of the box solutions in our design. Assisting owners and shipyards with specialist knowledge and experience.

Our recent R&D projects

Autonomous Guard Vessel

A consortium of maritime companies has developed the Autonomous Guard Vessel to support the offshore industry. The modern design is smaller and lighter than most current guard vessels used to protect offshore operations and boasts sustainable solutions as well as exploiting the benefits of autonomous shipping. In addition, the Autonomous Guard Vessel (AGV) is set to operate more efficiently as well as require lower operating costs due to no crew being required.

Autonomous Underwater Maintenance Dredger

C-Job has developed an innovative dredging solution that holds out the promise of being cleaner and more sustainable than ever before. Dredging today is an energy intensive process featuring powerful pumps to lift the sediment and water up from the sea bed. The C-Job Autonomous Underwater Maintenance Dredger (AUMD) is designed to provide a solution that is not only clean and sustainable, but also delivers substantially lower operating costs.

Ammonia (NH3) as a sustainable fuel

In terms of fuel, the shipping industry is becoming more and more aware of its impact on the environment. Considering the long-term, what sustainable fuels present viable and realistic possibilities for the maritime sector? C-Job believes that ammonia could be a viable option as a clean and sustainable marine fuel.

Accelerated Concept Design

Accelerated concept design optimization automatically checks feasibility and at the same time optimize ships by generating different design variations. Enabling the naval architect to innovate while managing the involved risk. Using accelerated concept design the naval architect can focus on the innovative and creative aspects of ship design while repetitive labor-intensive tasks can be executed by the computer.

Buckling tool

Responding to clients’ needs concerning their classification society requirements, C-Job’s aim with the 100% in-house developed Buckling Tool is to meet standards laid down by Bureau Veritas (BV), DNV GL and IACS, the International Association of Classification Societies. The Buckling Tool gives information about the stresses on each elementary plate panel and further calculates the buckling capacity of each of the panels.

Wind-assisted propulsion design for sustainable shipping

C-Job has been actively working on the subject of wind- assisted propulsion for a number of years now. Of the numerous techniques available, the company’s attention has focused primarily on the use of deck-mounted rotating vertical cylinders called Flettner Rotors (also known as Rotor Sails).

Using AIS data to optimize ship design

C-Job’s Research & Development team is using AIS position data to reconstruct a vessel’s operational profile. This enables C-Job to design vessels that are optimally matched to their operational requirements.
