InterSHIP – The art of constructing complex ships

Integrated collaborative design and production of cruise vessels, passenger ships and RoPax InterSHIP aimed to increase EU shipbuilders’ competitiveness by better integrating tools and methods for the design and manufacture of complex one-of-a-kind vessels. The project enabled shipyard engineers to draw on cutting-edge knowledge in environmental aspects, safety, comfort and cost efficiency in simultaneous engineering, making sure that optimum solutions can be obtained for the total lifecycle of complex ships. The Integrated Project also focused on improving horizontal cooperation between shipyards and vertical integration between shipyards, owners, and classification societies.
