Introduction

Morson Projects’ Marine team delivers a wide range of services to Marine clients around the world. Located in Scotland, our Marine team draws on many years of experience in both Defence and Commercial ship design.

How we can help

Our defence work supports prime contractors for the MOD. We currently have teams working on the Dreadnaught submarine program, as well as Type 26 new-build and the Type 45 re-powering program. Morson Projects are members of the steering group for the Naval Design Partnering Team.

Our Marine team maintains close working links with specialist companies in areas such as hull-flow CFD analysis, and special service craft design such as dredgers and fishing boats.

The team is headed up by David Gray C.Eng MRINA who leads the division with over 29 years professional experience.  David trained at Lloyds Register and has worked for businesses such as at Babcock, BAE Systems, and Rolls Royce during his career.
