Coastdesign Norway AS provides a wide range of technical services to the marine industry.

Stability and hydrostatic analysis
At Coastdesign Norway we have vast experience and specialist competence within stability analysis, especially for semi-submersible offshore units. We provide complete stability analysis with calculations carried out using the Autohydro software, approved and accepted by most government bodies.

Hull design and fairing
We have experience working with all types of vessels, from tankers and supply boats to sail and motor yachts. Using the Autoship design/surface modelling program we can generate any type of vessel and achieve perfectly fair surfaces. We provide Autoship models or exports to DXF or IGES format.

Speed/resistance prediction
The Autopower software is used for this type of analysis. Autopower applies different, customized calculation methods to different types of vessels: displacement, semi-displacement and planing hulls, as well as catamarans. Autopower can also be used for propeller optimization (based on Wageningen B series).

Plate expansion
We perform plate expansion using the Autoplate software -single or double curvature plate expansion with output e.g. in AutoCAD format for NC coding.

3D Database development
Autostructure is used to design the 3D internal structure of the vessel. Autostructure is built on top of Microsoft’s SQL Server database and uses AutoCAD for 2D editing and drawing output. It has extensive database functions and can export parts, assemblies and cross-sections in 2D and 3D and also the necessary information for NC cutting.

Software development and support
We have 20 years of experience selling and supporting the Autoship Systems software. Listening carefully to and having a close relationship with our clients we do a lot of support work. We also provide input for customization of software.




We arrange training seminars and courses for the complete range of Autoship software, for new users - or more experienced users who want to learn more or who have specific areas of interest.
