A New Design Verification Tool to Reduce Vessel Design Risk



KNUD E HANSEN announced that their next generation Virtual Reality (VR) Design Verification Tool called ShipSpace will be introduced at the SMM in Hamburg.

Interested parties will be able to enter ShipSpace themselves and try the cutting edge design verification tool to better understand the ship design and the spaces within it.

‘ShipSpace’ is a next-generation Virtual Reality (VR) Design Verification Tool.  It allows designers, engineers and key stakeholders to validate design ideas and communicate effectively about vessel concepts and designs.

The product consists of computer hardware and software on the customer’s premises and in the cloud.

ShipSpace has adapted the latest VR technologies to enable users to walk around all areas of the vessel and get a better understanding of how spaces work, with a true sense of depth and scale, not possible with monitors or projectors.


Finn Wollesen Petersen, Managing Director

“ShipSpace is a cutting edge tool that our engineers and partners can use to design better ships, faster.  KNUD E HANSEN has been an innovator in ship design since 1937 and ShipSpace is another step forward for us.”

Robert J Spencer, Head of Simulation Products

“ShipSpace has proven to be an excellent tool for communicating and developing designs and ideas, by enabling stakeholders to walk around the vessel while it is still on the drawing board”.
