NP107 is a remarkable unit. Apart from breaking the ice and clearing the trails in the Arctic regions, it was designed to carry out underwater rescue operations to a depth of 60 m and evacuating crews from sunken submarines. It was equipped with a diving bell launching system, decompression system, and four ROV vehicles. It could also carry out “regular” rescue operations on the surface of the water.
prof. A. Lerch – Chief Designer, ret.
Ranging from regular escort boats to heavy-duty arctic workboats and newly designed tug for the Polish Navy, we are proud to have worked on a great variety of different tug and workboat projects.
Extensive experience and know-how of our chief designers and team members make every tugboat and workboat of our design the performance benchmark for its type. We make sure all of them are:
- highly effective, tailor-made for owner’s needs,
- inexpensive and fast to build,
- fully compliant with necessary regulations.
During the design and development process, the units we design undergo demanding model tests that simulate real-life conditions. This gives us the unique insight which, along with advanced calculations and analyses, allows us to deliver a product that we are sure will be reliable in every condition and serve its purpose in the best possible way.

The recent launch of navy tug ‘Bolko’ marks an important milestone in NED-Project’s history. It is the first in a series of six on an order from the Ministry of Defence, and also first developed with the help of enhanced reality design tools.
NED-Project has worked with partners to develop two vessels designed to behave perfectly in heavy ice conditions. Thorough research and the use of state-of-the-art technologies resulted in brand new hull shapes, precisely optimized for their task.
