The delivery of unusual and special projects

We are specialist industry people and do not engage in general consultancy. Most of us have a background in shipyards or related organisations and are recognised leaders in our specialist areas. We understand international best practice and invest in research so we can offer our clients the most up to date solutions. We are based in the UK with offices in the USA, Germany and the Mediterranean.

Since 2008, FMI has operated as the shipyard technology and market research advisory group within Royal HaskoningDHV. By drawing on resources across disciplines and borders within the wider company we are able to respond effectively to wide range of client needs. For example, together with our colleagues in other areas of Royal HaskoningDHV, we can support clients through each stage of the shipyard design, construction and operation life cycle.
