Umoe Mandal is a high-tech company focusing on innovation and performance in the design and construction of naval vessels which are unrivalled in their class. Their operational performance has proven to be exceptional – even, in some areas, extreme.
All ships are optimized for littoral operations. They are fast, flexible and powerful, all with a high degree of survivability.
Extreme performance through advanced ship design has become the trade mark of Umoe Mandal: the ships are engineered to meet unusual and challenging requirements. No other shipyard has more experience with air cushion platforms. Innovative applications of Surface Effect Ship (SES) and hovercraft technologies are providing new operational capabilities to naval commanders.
Umoe Mandal has a staff of highly qualified naval architects, systems engineers and scientists. These dedicated specialists are experts in high-speed ship design and load-bearing composite structures. Their practical experience and inventive approach are recognized and utilized by navies and research establishments around the world.
Expeditionary missions and littoral warfare require a new generation of ships. High speed, shallow water capability, transformation and flexi-bility are key elements in our new ship concepts. In support of these novel designs the company has developed specialized low-signature and stealth components.
Ship-integrated surface-to-surface missile launchers, stealth shields for medium calibre gun mounts and stealth mast structures are typical load-bearing composite products developed and constructed by Umoe Mandal.
As a company Umoe Mandal focuses on two main business areas: design and construction of advanced naval composite ships, and the development and production of highly specialized composite products for the military and the civilian market.
