CUBEDIN A/S is a three way partnership between Systematic and Odense Maritime Expertise (OMT) aimed toward creating multi-purpose vessels (MPVs) for the worldwide market: versatile, modular naval vessels that may be remodeled from environmental safety craft to mine-sweepers very quickly in any respect. In future, it will likely be doable to configure ships in a matter of hours, and thus remodel an inspection ship right into a patrol vessel, or a mine-sweeper into an environmental safety craft. At the least in the event you ask the newly established firm CUBEDIN A/S, which is a three way partnership between two Danish firms, Systematic A/S and Odense Maritime Expertise (OMT).

Each firms have made their identify on the worldwide market, in Systematic’s case inside software program growth whereas OMT specialises in ship design. These competencies have now been introduced collectively in CUBEDIN A/S, and can assist to create the naval vessels of the long run within the type of modular and versatile ships. OMT, whose roots stretch again to A.P. Moller – Maersk and Odense Shipyard, is delivering experience inside fashionable ship design, whereas the second half of the maritime partnership is the software program firm Systematic, which is behind IT options which are used worldwide inside defence, well being, the police and wind turbine operations.


Collectively, the 2 firms have created an idea for constructing a model new sort of modular, versatile naval vessel. In a nutshell, the ships are designed and constructed to accommodate completely different modules – the so-called ‘cubes’ – that are delivered by the Danish firm SH Defence. The cubes are containers which may accommodate completely different masses, and which may rapidly be loaded/unloaded relying on the ship’s forthcoming missions. The hundreds can come from a variety of suppliers, simply so long as they match throughout the dice.

“Ships which are at present in service will not be designed with flexibility in thoughts. They’re often created for a particular function and for a selected sort of process. Utilizing the CUBEDIN know-how, shipbuilders can ship modular vessels which, within the house of some hours, could be tailored for various missions just by changing the modules. This isn’t simply sensible and versatile – it’s additionally far cheaper, as a result of mission-specific ships are costly to acquire and keep,” the newly appointed CEO at CUBEDIN A/S Danny Ingemann says.

The modules for the ships could be equipped by many alternative firms, and the brand new three way partnership has already caught the eye of the maritime business. On the world naval defence exhibition Euronaval in Paris in October 2022, CUBEDIN A/S signed, for instance, a partnership settlement with the French know-how large Thales which, like a number of different firms world wide, has expressed a need to ship content material for the cubes on the ships. As a part of the brand new three way partnership, OMT is delivering versatile ship design, whereas Systematic is liable for creating and supplying the software program which integrates the varied modules that remodel the vessel for the related mission.

CUBEDIN A/S is a ground-breaking new initiative inside ship design, modular know-how and software program. The corporate was established in 2022 as a three way partnership between two enterprises. The primary, Odense Marine Expertise (OMT), designs container ships and frigates, and is an offshoot of A.P. Moller – Maersk. The second is Systematic A/S, which is behind a number of the world’s main software program options for the defence, well being and utility sectors. Collectively, they’ve developed an idea for the maritime business which makes the method of ship design and shipbuilding sooner and extra cost-efficient, and which ends up in fashionable, adaptable and multi-purpose vessels.
