Project development

To design a new ship type or modify an existing one is a highly complex process which involves specialists from various maritime disciplines. Schiffahrtskontor tom Wörden works closely together with a number of renowned external service providers, like design offices, the Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) or classification societies. Together with these partners our nautical and technical teams aim at optimizing the parameters of a ship type to achieve the best results on cargo intake, fuel consumption and draft and furthermore to accommodate the special requirements of our customers. The profitability of a project is analyzed and substantiated by our commercial team.


With long-standing relations to shipping banks in Germany we are able to obtain financing at competitive rates for prospective projects. Furthermore, our investments in shipping are backed by the confidence and long-term objectives of diverse investors who have entrusted us with their money over several decades.
