Sustainability is an integral part in the design process, in the engineering work, as well as the entire building process at shipyards around the world. At TDoS we work with a sustainable approach when we among different parameters assess sensor controlled lights and ventilation, natural lighting, energy glazing and external shades, climate shell, high efficiency appliances as well as solar power. Along with smart tech we explore the latest innovative renewable and recycled materials for interiors, and also how they cope with functional and aesthetic requirements, all in order to enhance the passenger experience. A green approach in the cruising industry will build trust with environmentally conscious cruise customers, and bring along a bespoke luxury catering for tailored experiences with a respect for our eco-systems.

In order to show what is possible by using green technology in order to fulfill the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, TDoS has created AEGIR 2.0, a concept study for a yacht with an extremely low environmental footprint. The wind-powered trimaran combines excellent hydronics with a hybrid wind-electric propulsion system that re-charges all batteries when under sail. Infinity pool at the aft, Jacuzzi in the fore, seamless indoor-to-outdoor transitions, the Aegir combines bespoke Scandinavian luxury with a truly sustainable approach. A real project is Hurtigruten’s three eco-friendly new ships. MS FRIDTJOF NANSEN, built in 2020, cuts CO2 emissions by some 20 percent thanks to improved hull structure and a world-first hybrid electric-powered cruise ship technology. Other than using LNG and LBG to run the engines, single-use-plastics is banned and food is mainly sourced locally.

Design process

In every project we structure our creative ideas through an integrated methodology that pinpoints all the steps, from initial idea to crafted manufacturing. This helps us develop the best design solutions in close collaboration with our clients and their strategic intent. The methodology is divided into three main phases: Envision, Shape and Realize. Click on the icons to learn about each phase.

We also strengthen each project with an advisory board, a team of our most experienced designers and managers, to coach and make sure we deliver cutting edge, world class design. Every time.
