Advanced Ship Research Division

Leading the research on advanced ships by exploring and developing core technologies for environmentally friendly ships ad well as ice-going vessels

The Advanced Ship Research Division focuses on continuing to lead the research on next-generation marine transport by exploring and developing the core technology for environmentally friendly ships and for ice-going vessels in polar regions.
Using large testing facilities and numerical simulation technology, the division is conducting the researches to evaluate comprehensive hydrodynamic performance of a vessel and to improve its performance. In particular, the division is collaborating with the domestic shipbuilding industry through various support activities in order to ensure the continued global competitiveness. Additionally, through the participation in international committees, the Advanced Ship Research Division is able to proactively respond to areas where new issues and regulations are anticipated.
