Shipbuilding flow and roles

The construction of a ship is supported by a large number of shipyard staff.
The efforts of each and every staff member result in a ship that satisfies customers around the world.
Marketing (finding specific customer groups)

Product Planning / Hull Form Development

Based on the results of market research, we define a target segment among customers and create a concept to "Catch" their interests and then start a design development. By listening to VOC (the voice of customer) repeatedly we refine such design toward completion. Through this repetition, our products are evolving.


The main purpose of our development is to realize product concept from marketing and finish basic plan of ship.
In addition to basic shipbuilding planning, we are currently working on incorporating digital technology, involvement in the entire product life cycle, and shortening the lead time to commercialization in order to meet the demands of our customers and society.


Since its spin-off in 2003, the company has focused on medium-sized tankers. Our main customers are shipowners mainly located in Europe, Southeast Asia, and other overseas countries. We also exchange information with stakeholders in the shipping industry, such as charterers to whom our customers lease vessels and brokers to whom we deploy and sell vessels, in order to evolve our products and create business opportunities.
Process efficiency and quality control using the automotive industry model


Design is the process of preparing drawings for the actual construction of a ship. Some of drawing are required to receive approval of customers and/or class. Others are required to discuss with suppliers to decide specifications and to confirm at site to ensure proper construction.
The designer acts as a "translator" between the people involved in the shipyard.


At the construction site, each worker is required to have the skills to ensure quality. In addition to this, we have learned the basic concepts of "automation" and "just-in-time", which were pioneered in the automotive industry, in order to improve process efficiency and stabilize quality.


When the hull, which is the structure of the ship, is completed, the ship is launched and the plant up is carried out at the outfitting wharf. The ship is delivered to the customer after an official sea trial to confirm the ship's performance in actual sea with the customer and the class surveyor whether the performance is satisfied the contracted specification or not. This is the moment of fulfillment for the members involved in the construction, who are filled with joy and relief.
We are actively involved with the customer even after the delivery and are working to be involved in the entire life cycle of the ship.
