Design and engineering

In-house design & engineering

Royal Niestern Sander has an in-house design and engineering department, which is responsible for the design and project management of a large variety of new ships and large conversions.

The long history of new construction projects and the wide experience of Niestern Sander with ship repairs form the strong foundation for the advanced technology center. In close cooperation with the shipowner and co-owners, our shipbuilders create the most efficient process and end product.

By using 3D engineering tools, the specific wishes of the customer are translated into a (concept) design and ultimately to the complete engineering of the ship being built.
