About us

DW-ShipConsult is Germany’s leading company for noise and vibration (N&V) control on ships. We give advice to shipbuilders on how to build their vessels according to the acoustic requirements.

Passenger ferries, cruise ships, offshore, general cargo, research vessels, naval vessels, yachts and mega yachts.  Our service aims at the reduction of onboard noise, underwater noise and noise emissions in ports.

In every phase we focus on a most cost efficient and sustainable solution which meets the high quality expectations of our customers.
With our special calculation tool DW-COMPASS, we are able to assess expected noise levels in the very early design stage. This way, the planning of countermeasures can be optimized.

Our second branch focuses on underwater acoustics, where we measure, analyze and calculate sound propagation in the oceans. With our expertise on underwater radiated noise (e.g. for research vessel design) we ensure that DNV Silent R or similar requirements can be met.

Products and services

Noise / Vibration analysis
Analysis of ship design, prediction of noise / vibration levels in all relevant rooms, identification of dominant sources and transmission paths.
- Applicable in early design stage
- Quick results (- Cost efficient

Design improvements
Recommendation of suitable noise / vibration countermeasures or design changes. Aim: To lower onboard noise or underwater radiated noise levels below required limits.
- Customized solution for each ship
- Acoustic limits are met
- Most economic solution (unnecessary countermeasures are discarded)

Trouble shooting
Solve any existing N&V problems on ships:
- Noise / Vibration on the ship
- Emitted noise
- Underwater radiated noise

Underwater acoustic services
- Short- and long term measurement of sound in the oceans and in shallow waters
- Calculation and simulation of sound propagation in the sea
