Disciplines

Naval architecture and marine engineering
Accelerating in performance. That’s wat we want. In terms of safety, efficiency and off course comfort for all floating vessels. And we, the naval architects, are the lucky ones who can design these vessels and can determine their shapes and sizes. Using advanced engineer tools and a fine eye for detail, we evaluate the stability and manoeuvring skills of the vessel. We evaluate the structures, needed to support the forces the vessel will experience and the power to bring them through the waves.
The marine engineer is the expert who design the systems that brings the vessel to life. He or she puts the puzzle together, from the largest engine to the smallest parts. And every piece must fit, no piece can be left out.

Hydrodynamics
Hydrodynamics can analyse and improve the performance of your vessel. The benefits well be saving fuel, increasing speed and more comfort to crew and passenger by reducing acceleration and wind hinder.
Mathieu Colon, the naval architect at Epomat, is a master in hydrodynamics for the marine and offshore market. He has got decades of experience and he will not stop until he finds the best solution for your project.

Project Management
Our team of engineers know and understand the principles of the most optimal design for your vessel. They also know and understand the key performance features of a new project. This enables us to manage your project as well. We can make important decisions in all stages of the project. From idea to delivery, you can count on us.

Training
Thanks to our former composite engineering expertise, Epomat has developed a training for the Wind Industry. We are proud BZEE certified partner and our Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Inspection and Repair training course was the first one in Europe in 2016.
All wind turbines in the field, whether it is off shore or at land, get damaged. Erosion and lightning damage are everyday occurrence. Unfortunately, it is a misconception that rotor blades, which are made of reinforced plastic, are maintenance free. These damages mean that the blades can not recover as much energy form the wind as they should. This is why all wind turbines need regular inspection and repairs to maintain high efficiency.
