Noise and vibration

A quite environment low vibration is determining in measuring the quality of a ship

The search for faster and more economically viable shipping vessels conflicts with the search for increasingly silent surroundings that meet our expectations. Still, the right tools and the extensive experience built up in the field can help attain an onboard environment where not only are noise and vibration levels not harmful to health but they are so good that we cannot tell the difference between being onboard and on land. All this without sacrificing performance, and guaranteeing higher economic return both during its operational life and when it is put up for sale.

Service details

The numerous studies developed on a great number of crafts,  alongside bespoke campaigns, developed onboard to assess the levels of comfort, have made it possible to:

  • extend awareness of the phenomenon
  • have data to baseline the problem and decide on the most appropriate method of analysis
  • understand the limits of the calculation models and corresponding uncertainties
  • quantify the level of confidence in the results
  • propose effective solutions without deluding customer expectations.


From knowledge of current construction standards, of the atypical operating environment and of customer expectations, it is possible:

For new builds:

  • to provide assistance in formulating contract specifications and design choices
  • to develop predictions of noise and vibration levels
  • to adjust insulation and structural plans to achieve the goals
  • to carry out inspections during construction work to guarantee the result is achieved on delivery.

For existing builds:

  • to develop bespoke campaigns aimed at assessing the level of noise and vibration for comfort purposes
  • to compare results amongst similar builds
  • to address weak points
  • to propose the best cost-benefit solutions.
