On behalf of the German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw), MTG is currently developing a tool, which allows the comparison of life cycle fleet costs.
MTG Marinetechnik GmbH is an independent naval consultant with more than 50 years of experience.
The engineering company’s core business includes conclusive overall ship design concepts and every aspect that supports the procurement process such as requirement management, cost analysis, personnel / crew models, simulations and survivability studies.
MTG specifies requirements and designs naval ships for several navies and governments with a focus on the early process phase.
Ship design ideas and technical solutions for the naval industry
Each project begins with the engineers at MTG analysing the capability gap or requirement in terms of its technical feasibility. Based on this, they then compile functional requirements together with the client, which provides a basis for design ideas and technical solutions. Finally, the individual requirements are used to draft a consistent and viable general concept.
Engineering and feasibility studies for marine applications
The German think-tank puts the pieces of the puzzle together, including:
- Conclusive overall concepts
- Propulsion models
- Electrical drafts
- Personnel / crew
- Technical risk appraisals
- Cost estimation (LCC)
- Mission systems
- Ship operation facilities
- 2D side and plan views
- Acoustic evaluation and calculation
- Technical documentation
Procurement phase and lifetime support for vessel-building projects
The project management team involves the customer during the entire process. While evaluating requirements with the client, MTG defines the capabilities a vessel must have.
The engineers then prepare and present preliminary and final results and discuss these with the client.
The experts provide recommendations based on results for further decision-making and future steps. This includes all necessary data, evaluations and comparisons so the client is able to select the best solution for their needs.
MTG offers support during the procurement phase and throughout the lifetime of the vessel for mid-term conversion.
The original concept behind MTG Marinetechnik was born in 1966 from the German Federal Ministry of Defence desire to bring together strategic knowledge on the overall concept of naval ships in one place away from production sites.
The aim was to create a centre for maritime concerns to identify and develop optimal solutions without the economic pressure of production utilisation levels.
From the very start, the company was established as an independent and self-sufficient consulting firm. For this reason, MTG Marinetechnik soon carried out tasks not only for the German Navy but also for other navies and industrial companies.
Today, more than 50 experts in the fields of naval architecture, marine engineering, electrical engineering, weaponry, telecommunications engineering and computer science work together on projects on an interdisciplinary basis.
MTG is an independent business that offers impartial consulting services to provide an optimal approach for every client.
Borei Class is a Russian fourth-generation nuclear-powered missile submarine. It is intended to eventually replace the ageing Delta III and Typhoon Class submarines and become an important deterrent for the Russian Navy.
