Company Profile:
HydrOcean is a leading company in marine computational fluid dynamics. Its mains services include hydrodynamic consultancy studies, software licensing and R&D projects.
HydrOcean is composed of 18 engineers with naval and offshore backgrounds. The team is organized around technical experts specialized in resistance, propulsion, seakeeping and hydrodynamic impact.

HydrOcean was created from, and is supported by the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory of Ecole Centrale Nantes (ECN). HydrOcean and ECN have set up a highly efficient research partnership, which aims at promoting the most innovative research tools developed in their laboratory and also making them accessible to industrial partners in the form of service provisions or through user licenses. HydrOcean is involved in both industrial and Research & Development projects, in the field of numerical simulation exclusively dedicated to naval, offshore, yacht and marine renewable energies industries.

Marine Hydrodynamics

What we offer:
HydrOcean’s main activities are related to the expertise it has developed around numerical hydrodynamics:

•Consultancy services with the use of various numerical tools: potential solvers, free surface Navier-Stokes solvers, particle methods, high dynamic fluid/structure interaction, etc.

•Software licensing with training and support for companies who prefer to have instant access to the numerical tools and an in house team.

•R&D projects for clients wanting to setup up, develop specific tools and innovative software.

Our main services:
•We evaluate and optimize hydrodynamic performance through numerical studies of many hull shapes using manual or automatic methods. Our services enable our clients to increase ship's energy efficiency and improve performance.
•Design risks can be limited due to simulation of the ship in high-risk situations identified by the architect, such as: heave impacts, slamming, behavior in waves, maneuvering.

Our solutions bring you:
•Accuracy and reliability
•Decreased costs
•Tools suited to your most complex uses
•Highly qualified team with specific skills
