Ahoy. We are OSK-ShipTech

There is no such thing as a zero-emission ferry_box crop

There is no such thing as a zero-emission ferry!

In its strive towards net-zero emissions come 2050, the shipping industry should steer a different course from the one that is focusing only on the CO2 emissions from the fuel. We must focus on the broader picture in the CO2 emissions debate. This is the unambiguous message from OSK-ShipTech, the Danish naval architecture consultancy, which has been instrumental for the designs of many recent high-profile ro-pax ferries.

OSK-ShipTech has supported Greenland Institute of Natural Resources through the entire process from tendering and contracting through construction and delivery as Owner's Representative.


"We are extremely happy to have had OSK-ShipTech on our side as Owner's Representatives managing and supervising the construction of our important newbuilding project. It has been a roller coaster at times due to the corona pandemic, but the handling of the construction process and the service and proactive mindset of the site team from OSK has carried the project through in the best way possible."

The best performance for
a better climate

Whether we create a new design, make calculations or something else related to a project, we always aim to enhance vessel performance and minimise fuel consumption by improving hull form, sailing profiles and engine configuration.
We recommend solutions, which contribute to production and usage of effective energy. 

Sustainability is high on our agenda – for the benefit of the environment and our clients. We cooperate with the most visionary operators and suppliers towards a greener marine industry, and we strive to design the vessels of the future with zero emissions yet maximum profitability and passenger comfort.
