Specialised Engineering Solutions

Supporting customers in the maritime industry across a wide variety of markets

Alongside the design and engineering services that support our core markets, IHC is active in a number of other sectors, where we deliver specific expertise to shipowners and shipyards.  


Cruise ships

IHC has been working for many years on engineering projects for the world’s largest cruise shipyards, completing a range of basic and detailed engineering scopes on new-builds. With a requirement for specific expertise and an awareness of rules and regulations (such as SRtP and USPH), customers highly value the competence level of our engineering staff. 



We have been supporting the international superyacht industry with a range of basic and detailed engineering services. Furthermore, we are becoming increasingly involved in the early stages of yacht projects, where we translate the owner’s concept into a sound technical design. Our references range from luxury cruisers to harsh-environment expedition yachts. 


Fishery and aquaculture 

IHC is unique in putting a customer’s process and business model central to a ship’s design in order to arrive at a solution with the lowest total cost of ownership. We have successfully applied this method in a number of fishing and aquaculture projects, ranging from trawlers to workboats and research vessels. 


A range of other markets

Our integrated approach – from concept to production package – provides owners with confidence during the shipyard selection process, knowing that their vessel meets the intended requirements. Our availability of over 500 engineers allows us to always access the right design and engineering expertise for a range of other maritime markets.
