Getting ships in shape is Rolls-Royce Marine's titanic task. The company offers hydrodynamics research, ship design, and propulsion, steering, and motion control systems to a host of customers. Commercial and naval segments supply equipment and services to more than 30,000 vessels, from yachts and ferries to patrol and fast naval vessels. The company is credited with launching aero gas turbines for surface ship propulsion. An offshore segment focuses on design and support for exploration and production, including seismic vessels, drilling ships, and maneuvering systems. Among many, technology for nuclear submarine propulsion caps the efforts of a submarine segment. The company is a subsidiary of Rolls-Royce.
