We are working closely with both operators and technology vendors within the maritime industry, focusing mainly on research and development of new energy efficiency solutions.

 

NSH ENGINEERING 

Engineering is at the core of what we do and is the driving force within the group.

North Sea Handling focus on providing the maritime industry with market leading solutions within cargo / passenger access equipment and energy efficiency solutions.

We are a supplier of state of the art equipment and are not afraid to shoulder the most demanding challenges to meet our customers’ needs.

Cargo and passenger access solutions consist of a wide range of products which cover most types of ships such as Ferries, Cruise ships, Ro-Ro, Navy and Offshore Support Vessels. Ramps, Cargo Elevators, Doors, Hatch Covers, Tender Platforms, Side Loading, Launch and Recovery Systems are typical examples of equipment we deliver.

Energy Efficiency is more important than ever, both in respect of improving the economy and to reduce emissions to minimize our environmental footprint.

Improved hydrodynamic design of specific areas of ship hulls is one of our primary areas within this field. As fuel economy is linked to hydrodynamic design, this is and will be an important parameter in future ship design.  Success in hydrodynamic design is therefore a key topic for environmentally friendly solutions and to be able to compete in a future market.

In addition to our engineering specialists in Norway we also have a company in Poland, in the city of Gdansk, focusing on engineering and R&D.

We have been part of several very complex and unique projects where we have acted as technical managers and senior advisors. We are not afraid of thinking outside the box, sharing our knowledge and experience to see our clients succeed.

We are one of few companies authorized by Norwegian and Swedish maritime authorities to carry out initial certifications and periodic control of cargo-handling equipment on ships, fishing vessels and deck cranes on mobile offshore units.
