What we can do

We have the skills and experience to deliver complete designs for a broad range of technical vessels such as workboats, pushers, tugs, research, aquaculture or oil recovery vessels. Having worked in close collaboration with owners and several European shipyards, we have understood the relevant pitfalls in design and construction, so we can deliver our clients peace of mind and a technically sound project.


GLO has delivered the design and engineering for more than 35 newbuilds. Our involvement has varied from full detailed design (including specification, design, procurement, and building or installation supervision) to third party verification work for different types of vessels.

  • Concept Design
  • Basic design - hull
  • Basic design - piping & machinery
  • Basic design - electrical
  • Detailed engineering
  • Class approval

Ships in Operation

Engineering for ships in operation must focus on cost-efficiency and minimizing docking time. Through streamlined workflows and effective project management we ensure that the project is under control and delivered on time and in budget.

  • Ballast Water Treatment Systems
  • Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems
  • Conversions & Mobilisations
  • Class & Statutory Support
  • Refurbishment & Interior Design
  • On-site Inspection & Survey

Key Numbers

We’ve successfully faced the challenges of designing and engineering vessels for optimum functional efficiency. We have a very good understanding of all the challenges arising from designing small technical vessels such as space allocation, weight distribution or power predictions at high speeds and proved that we can deliver all these at competitive costs whilst also working flexibly with our clients to accommodate their needs and budgets. Our realisations, in numbers:

  • Newbuild Projects


  • Complete Design Projects


  • Specialised Vessles


  • Electric Vessel Concepts


  • Conversions / Retrofits


  • Stability Projects


  • Engineers


  • Country presence



Key projects

We understand every project is unique, so we tailor our technical, planning and project management expertise accordingly. Spatial distribution, the integration of technologies, practical improvements, streamlined production, all these aspects are developed and coordinated to perfection to design vessels that exceed our customers’ expectations. Some of these vessels are presented below.

Multi Purpose Pusher

Multipurpose vessel fully designed by GLO Marine from concept to detail design.
The vessel can push up to 4 barges and the on board crane can lift up to 5.3t at a boom extension of 14.1m.
Due to the innovative hull shape and design the vessel is efficient in operation.

Cruise Polar Exploration Vessel

GLO Marine was part of the design project of the first hybrid polar exploration vessel powered by LNG, being responsible with detail engineering for Hull, Pipe & Outfitting and HVAC - mid section and fore parts. This is the 20th newbuild GLO Marine has been involved in, during our collaboration with VARD.
