Y-SHAPE HULL 

The Y-shape Hull is a structure that can be used to build anything that has the potential to sustain a hit. It's the new way of building structures that rely 

on an optimal impact resistance. These simulations show a collision under the same conditions and speed. 


The calculation show the impact until the inner wall is pierced. The simulations show that, the inner wall of the conventional hull is pierced after an absorption 

force of 5.42 Mega Joule. Were as with the YShape Hull, the inner wall is pierced after an absorption power of 14.96 Mega Joule.

Other than being simply safer, the Y-shape Hull offers your even more compelling benefits.

6 reasons why

Your responsible ship

Keep your nautical record clean and green by reducing the risks of leakage or cargo spills in the event of a collision or grounding.

Safety

Your new vessel built with the Y-shape Hull will be as safe as can be. The Y-shape Hull absorbs more energy upon impact, and prevents the rupture of your cargo tank. In the event of a collision, your ship will maintain stability. The probability of hull rupture is much lower than with a conventional hull.

The perfect combination

Be part of this new sustainable solution. By using the Y-shape Hull and having the possibility of sailing with LNG, you have the opportunity to lower your ship's CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) emissions, and bring your particulate matter emission down to none.

No building complications

The simplicity of the Y-shape Hull structure makes it easy for you to build. It allows a good measure of production automation. Build a new vessel with the Y-shape Hull or use your standard structural steel.

Safer offshore and bunkering operations

Decrease your chances of oil spills, and keep your record clean. In ports and coastal areas with high maritime traffic, you and your tanker can enjoy optimal protection with the Y-shape Hull.

Sail away with LNG

Protect your LNG-fuelled ship with the Y-shape Hull and significantly decrease the risk of damage to your cryogenic tanks upon collision.

Expeditiously

With a decreased probability of hull penetration, and the chance to safely use larger cargo tanks, it's blue skies ahead. The simplicity of the Y-shape Hull structure is what also makes it so practical. Have a look at those who already have set sail safely.
