MTG Marinetechnik Independent Naval Warship Design Agency

MTG Marinetechnik GmbH is a highly experienced independent naval consultant with more than 50 years of involvement in ship design concepts and all aspects of the procurement process such as requirements management, cost analysis, personnel / crew models, simulations, as well as survivability reports.

Ship design ideas and technical solutions for the naval industry

MTG designs naval ships based on the individual needs of several navies and governments with a focus on the early process phase.

Each project begins with the engineers at MTG analysing the capability gap or requirement in terms of its technical feasibility. They then compile functional requirements together with the client, which provide the basis for design ideas and technical solutions.

Engineering and feasibility studies for marine applications

The client’s individual conditions gathered by MTG are used to draft a consistent and viable general concept. The German think-tank puts the pieces of the puzzle together using in-depth studies, including:

  • Conclusive overall concepts
  • Propulsion models
  • Electrical drafts
  • Personnel / crew
  • Signatures
  • Ergonomics
  • Technical risk appraisals
  • Cost estimation (LCC)
  • Mission systems
  • Ship operation facilities
  • 2D side and plan views
  • Acoustic evaluations and calculations
  • Technical documentation

Procurement phase and lifetime support for vessel-building projects

MTG’s project management team involves the naval customer during the whole process.

While evaluating the client’s requirements, MTG defines the capabilities the vessel must have. The engineers then prepare and present preliminary as well as final results and discuss these with the client.

The ship design consultants give recommendations based on the 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 supports during the procurement phase and throughout the lifetime of the vessel for mid-term conversion.

About MTG

The original idea behind the establishment of MTG Marinetechnik was born in 1966. The German Federal Ministry of Defence brought together the strategic knowledge surrounding the overall concept of naval ships in one place and away from production sites. The aim was to create a centre for maritime expertise in order to identify and develop ideal solutions, without the economic pressure of production utilisation levels.

The company was designed as an independent and unbiased consulting firm from the very beginning. 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 the ideal approach for every client.
