Our Services

What we can do for you.

System Design

We design the perfect power system for your ship. Based on data instead of gut feeling.

System Optimisation

By creating a digital twin, we determine the optimal fine-tuning for your system.

Technology Assesment

Not every technology fits your application. We investigate technologies for you and derive a clear conclusion.

Data Logging

We are able to measure and log almost all types of data on your ship.

For real time data access we can utilzise our cooperation partner ZPS AEC.link

Solving special

With our deep knowledge in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering we tackle your challenge.

With our programming-, data- and optimisation- capabilities we build digital tools for you.


We provide tailored solutions for individual ships and fleet strategies, focusing on promoting sustainability through technology.

Our measurement technology and software can also be applied to energy systems in other areas. These might include island grids, land vehicles, or construction machinery.

Yes, ISM approaches your challenges with a technology-neutral and ideology-free mindset and has no vested interest in recommending products from specific manufacturers.

We use data from all available sources to examine your challenges as precisely as possible and to find the best solution. For this purpose, we also collaborate with providers like Zeppelin Power Systems, with whom we have established an interface to be able to use the data from their systems. However, such a collaboration in no way implies that we favor products from Zeppelin Power Systems in our results.

Our unique blend of academic research and practical experience allows us to develop innovative solutions grounded in the latest findings and proven in practice.

We believe that every challenge is best addressed with the right tool and that for many of today’s challenges, Excel and PowerPoint are not sufficient. Therefore, we develop custom-tailored tools that can assist you with crucial tasks. Examples include planning tools for the path to carbon neutrality or software to enhance efficiency in your ship operations.

Since ISM was only founded in 2023, there isn’t a dedicated page for our projects yet. However, we have already collaborated with the following companies:

Flotte Hamburg GmbH & Co. KG
Zeppelin Power Systems

Please feel free to contact us for more information.

Yes, we are happy to support you, no matter where you are located or where your ships operate.

We would be happy to review your challenge and see how we can assist you. In general, we are always open to challenges that aren’t yet in our portfolio.

HYDE is an in-house developed software that allows for the rapid comparison of various drive configurations based on a specific use case, thus enabling the identification of the optimal drive configuration.

Yes, we provide training sessions and workshops tailored to your specific needs and challenges.

We also offer lectures and courses on the topics of internal combustion engines, marine propulsion technology, auxiliary systems on ships, and hydraulics. Depending on the need, we can offer these subjects at a basic level or at the level of a university master’s program.

cost effective Measures

Let's bring your Emissions down.

We offer comprehensive solutions for your current fleet and guidance in planning new vessels, whether it’s for individual ships or the overarching technological strategy for your entire fleet.
