Design Approach

Design Approach 
Our team has many decades of design experience worldwide, in roles from mechanical, structural, electrical and civil engineering, to piling design and naval architecture disciplines. Our knowledge of berthing and mooring is matched by a thorough grasp of maritime construction.

Material development
Our designers pay close attention to materials science. As a result of our research programme we now use higher grades of steel and other materials than ever before.

Design for longevity
Carefully designed components and high quality materials will always outperform and outlast off-the-shelf parts. Lower maintenance means lower lifetime costs.

Modelling and analysis
Using new creative technologies – including solid modelling and FE analysis – Eurotech Benelux has left behind the traditional boundaries of design. Our in-house finite element and structural analysis suites help analyse the performance and load paths in each system. All designs are produced to the latest ultimate limit state codes and norms, Eurocode 3 being our in-house standard, but others will be used on request.

A 3D design initiated in our European office in the morning can be converted overnight into manufacturing drawings in Beijing, proofed the next day and ready to send to the client for approval.
