Ship Design 

We have an experienced, professional staff of Naval Architects capable to face innovative design challenges. Our team has the experience, capabilities and capacity for any project. Albion Marine Solutions scope of services ranges from concept studies through design documentation, to production working drawings and procurement support.


Sample Projects

To reduce the environmental impact and carbon footprint Albion Marine has developed an innovative and state of the art Hybrid Patrol Vessel. The vessel design uses proven hybrid technology that guarantees perfect interaction between both diesel and diesel-electric with optimum power delivery. This design meets Transport Canada standards and of the member societies of International Association of Classification Societies (IACS). The primary purpose of the vessel would be to support the Harbour Master activity that includes conducting on-water compliance monitoring, port procedures education and enforcement, vessel escorts, removal of navigational hazards, and to assist in marine oil-spill response. In addition, the vessel could be used for scientific monitoring and sampling, conducting port tours and operating as a remote emergency operations centre.

Albion Marine has also developed an aluminum Oil Recovery Barge. Our team has designed a non-powered aluminum barges of varied sizes for increased storage capacity of recovered oil in calm waters that would be deployed in response to a marine pollution incident. All constructions and equipment complies with the Canadian Coast Guard Agency Standards and other regulations.







Albion Zero 

Albion Marine Solutions has developed its own proprietary design of a zero emissions electric, renewable energy powered ferry, "Albion Zero". 

The ferry has been designed in line to meet the latest as well as upcoming environmental legislations, making it a future-proof solution. Albion Zero’s sustainable design is also compatible to work with solar power and tidal power to charge the onboard batteries. The ferry is designed to be fitted with a wide range of Albion Marine’s latest technical solutions that will work seamlessly to provide optimal level of reliability and efficiency. The ferry would utilise the latest developments in this domain such as wireless charging and automatic mooring capabilities.


Albion Zero’s design has been kept modular to suit different types of vessel sizes and propulsion mechanisms. Although, it can be implemented globally, it has been designed to replace/ convert the huge number of diesel-hydraulic river-crossing ferries in Canada. This concept is well suited for remote, indigenous, and Northern communities which have no grid power around the ferry crossing area to charge the batteries. The adaptability to solar and tidal power gives Albion Zero a cutting edge in the river crossing ferry market.
