The Company

Coastdesign Norway AS is exclusive Scandinavian dealer of the Autoship software. This is a complete suit of leading-edge software for the marine industry, developed by Autoship Systems Corporation in Vancouver, Canada.


We have 20 years of experience selling and supporting the Autoship Systems software. We listen carefully to our clients and have a very close relationship with Autoship Systems Corporation, where we play an important role in improving and developing the software. In particular, we contribute to the specifications for new releases and also new codes.

Education / Training

Over the years we have organised many training seminars for new users, helping out applying the software on one of their own projects. Projects which are directly related to their daily work, so that our clients very quickly get up to speed with using the software.


In addition, we put a lot of effort into supporting our clients so that they can get the best out of their software. We also organise user seminars when new software is released or when major changes have been implemented.

Consultancy services

Coastdesign Norway provides consultancy services, mainly within stability and hydrodynamic analysis, hull design and fairing, plate expansion, speed prediction and development of 3D databases. Using most of the Autoship software on a daily basis means that we can offer fast and extensive support to our clients as well as supply valuable input for the software development.


Our ship design software suite, built around the Autoship hull design programme is very well renowned. Today we have some 2000 users world-wide. We offer complete and integrated software solution for shipyard, ship owners, offshore companies as well as maritime consultants.

With our DNV, NMD and Lloyds approved stability software Autohydro as a basis, we started developing the onboard loading computer Autoload five years ago. Today Autoload represents a growing part of our activities. We have also developed products around Autoload for total integrated ship planning, so that we can provide shipping companies and terminals with ship planning and management solutions which both improved cargo handling efficiencies and fully integrate planning operations into the real-time logistical chain.

Autoload is available in versions suitable for any vessel type and, most importantly, can handle any type or combination of cargo. We have delivered systems ranging from an integrated ship planning system for the complete Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet to a integrated onboard stability solution for Thunderhorse - the biggest semi-submersible rig ever built. At present, Autoload is used onboard more than 700 vessels.
