Innovations

Any product will have an impact when being produced, when being in use, and when taken out of use. When designing a ship or developing a product, we keep in mind their life cycle environmental impact.

X-STERN®

The X-STERN® introduces the documented X-BOW® effect to the aft ship. The sloping, higher stern allows for a sharp stern shape in which the transom plate is replaced by a pointed aft. Some of the benefits are: Improved safety for crew and equipment, increased flexibility in operations and reduced fuel consumption.

X-BOW®

The ULSTEIN X-BOW®, the inverted bow concept, redefined marine engineering. The bow concept was launched in 2005, together with the first shipbuilding contract, and gained immediate interest from shipowners. The X-BOW hull line design has been tried in all weather conditions.
