Differentiation of Products and Services, Market Segmentation, Brand positioning, the three pillars on which rests the reality of modern Strategic Marketing, must be defined, and redefined, and placed in working order.
From simple Restyling and strengthening of our brands to the Branding positioning and Co-Branding, because without brand prestige there is no solid basis on which to rely and on which to grow; through active management of a real communication media, with creative actions of high impact and low-cost.
Or the deepest and inescapable definition and development of Strategic Business Units, because not always we recognize and use all our possibilities for our growth and expansion; to the formulation and reformulation of Marketing Plans and Sales Actions, because without clearly and defined goals, the success is just a matter of luck… and failure just a question of time.
Are just some of our strategic skills to achieve business success, also in our sector. Strategic Marketing Tools that is necessary need to know how to deploy and combine effectively together, to reach tools and skills working for us.

Innovative Naval Architecture
The Hull Vane is a fuel saving device in the form of a fixed foil, located below the stern of a ship.
Thrust > Wave reduction > Trim correction > Reduced pitching
The Hull Vane influences the stern wave pattern and creates hydrodynamic lift, which is partially oriented forward. This results in a reduction in of the ship’s resistance. The performance of the Hull Vane depends on the ship’s length, speed and hull shape in the aft sections, and ranges from 5 to 15% for suitable ships. In specific cases, savings up to 20% are possible.
THE HULL VANE WAS INVENTED BY DR. IR. PIETER VAN OOSSANEN AND IS PROTECTED BY PATENTS IN ALL MAJOR SHIPBUILDING COUNTRIES.
Hull Vane b.v. is a company established by Van Oossanen Naval Architects
