Ocean Tug & Barge Engineering Joins Hyperion

Ocean Tug & Barge Engineering Corporation (OT&BE), a naval architecture and marine engineering firm specializing in articulated tug/barge (ATB) design, announced October 11 that it is now a member of the Hyperion Marine Engineering Group headquartered in Portland, Maine. Hyperion has offices in India, the United Arab Emirates, Norway and the Netherlands.

CT Marine and Buoyancy Consultants formed Hyperion three years ago, recognizing a need for an integrated naval architectural and marine engineering firm to serve the inland and offshore tug and barge industry that incorporates a capability for highly detailed conceptual design through production under one corporate roof.

With more than 70  engineers worldwide, Hyperion offices are open for business to serve client needs, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Hyperion holds an ISO27001:2013 certification.

CT Marine and Ocean Tug & Barge Engineering recently celebrated more than three decades of collaborative work.

“Historically, our biggest challenge at Ocean Tug & Barge Engineering was the high demand for our services verse the size of our staff,” said President Robert Hill. “This often created delays in delivering the high quality of engineering customer demand as quickly as desired. The small staff, coupled with high demand for our services, slowed our design work significantly. As president of the firm, I have been determined to solve that problem, and now we have. In joining Hyperion, OT&BE will now offer more experience and proven designs in brown and blue water sectors of the tug/barge design marketplace.”

The firm can design in a variety of design software, including CATIA, Nupas Cadmatic and Ship Constructor.
