NED-Project sp. z o.o. was founded in 2010 – but its history had begun much earlier, in 1991, with Shipproject PPU, a company founded by our director Jerzy Pietrzak. Being an experienced naval architect himself, he had started to build a team of skilled designers and engineers. As they had continued working together, the team later became the backbone of the newly established NED-Project, a multidisciplinary design office. Today, our most experienced project designers and engineers transfer their knowledge to younger generations of specialists. It is through a combination of years of experience, fresh ideas and continuous development that we design cutting-edge units and provide high-quality services.

We pride ourselves in providing our services to the customers on every stage of the investment, from the project plan and the very first design concepts, until the execution of the most efficient solutions and finally the support services on keeping the fleet in great shape during its utilization.
