Omschrijving / Description

Ship insulation requires an different approach to the design and installation of systems. Each ship has its own profile, in which a specific trade-off is made between thermal, acoustic and fire-resistant insulation. This course focuses on the specific professional knowledge needed to insulate ships.

Resultaat / Result

You will become familiar with the (basic) principles of thermodynamics, acoustics and fire-resistant insulation of ships. You will gain practical insight into why, when and through which means structures and systems are insulated. You will also gain an understanding of the applicable regulations and the application of the most commonly used insulation and finishing materials.

Doelgroep / Audience

Intended for supervisors, project managers and other (technical) managers responsible for ship insulation who have not followed any specific training or course in field of insulation.

Inhoud / Content

The course mainly covers insulation theory. The following elements are covered:

    • Heat and cold insulation
    • Acoustic insulation
    • Fire-resistant insulation
    • Applications with the use of drawings


Examen / Exam

There will not be a test at the end of the course At the end of the course day, you will receive a certificate of participation from OOI.

Vooropleiding / Pre-training

You must have experience in the execution of insulation work. You must also be able to read ship construction drawings.


The course dates vary, and will be scheduled based on the applications received. The course is given at the OOI training centre and in-company.
