Practical Solutions for Your Biggest Challenges

HydroComp’s team engages in a variety of engineering and technical consulting projects, from speed predictions, sizing and designing propellers for unique applications, evaluating vessel trial data, or expert witness evaluations. Clients from around the world call on us as Subject Matter Experts.

We partner on all sizes of projects. For example, you can find our work ranging from focused propeller analysis or hull design projects to extensive support for large-scale efforts.

Supporting Vehicle Development

Many companies involved in submersible vehicle development also look to equip the vehicle with a custom thruster. These companies typically have expertise in vehicle and drive design, but will not be experienced in propulsor design. Nor would they be expected to have the specialized tools necessary for proficient thruster design, analysis, and optimization. This article will introduce submersible vehicle developers to the design practices used by HydroComp and other specialists to deliver thruster designs that are among the highest thrust to-power ratio propulsors in service.
