Design Consultancies

NAPA is an ideal tool for design consultancies that require flexible and comprehensive solutions for the design of various types of ships and offshore structures.

Flexibility to design work with NAPA

A consultancy needs a design package that is capable of performing all the necessary calculations in various types of projects. Flexibility to make rapid design changes is also a key factor in responding to customers’ requirements. Easier integration to customers’ processes is also a major benefit for a design consultancy as most shipyards and classification societies also use the NAPA.


For designers NAPA offers a unique possibility to include the Onboard-NAPA Loading Computer to their scope of supply toward the shipbuilder. This way the design information can be secured and prepared in sync with the design. Onboard-NAPA can also be used by the designer to explain the uniqueness of the design to the shipowner already at a very early stage. 


NAPA is used by some 130 design consultancies from one-man companies to larger organisations with hundreds of engineers.
