Shipbuilding Research Centre of Japan (SRC)

The Shipbuilding Research Centre of Japan (SRC) was established under the authorization of the Minister of Transport on 12 May 1967. Since their establishment over half a century, they have been engaged in various business activities, mainly focusing on tank testing services. At SRC, they have been conducting the tank testing services to develop hull designs and propulsion systems, as well as initial designs of ship, supervision during construction and research studies. In addition, they have been involved in technical cooperation projects overseas since 2004. Further, they have been engaged in comprehensive consulting services since 2017 by utilizing the skills, knowledge, and human resources they have gained over many years. In the global shipbuilding market, the Japanese shipbuilding industry has been competing fiercely with that of China and South Korea to win shipbuilding orders around the world. On the other hand, in recent years it is necessary to solve various global technical issues in response to social needs emanating from enhanced environmental awareness and safety. Such an environment as this provides Japan with a great opportunity to strengthen its international competitiveness further by demonstrating the high technical capability, that is recognized as strength of Japan, and differentiating Japan from other countries. For this reason, as a member of the Maritime Cluster of Japan, SRC will maximize its abilities and hope to contribute to the development of local and international societies/economies and also to the conservation of the global environment by contributing to the development of shipbuilding, shipping and ship machinery industries. Recognizing that their mission is to contribute to the development of the maritime industry, they are all committed to continue striving to improve the quality of their services. They hope for your continued guidance and encouragement. Organization 1967: Established in May, 1967. SRC inherited towing tanks from the Ship Technology Research Institute and began propulsive performance testing and other tank testing, basic design and other ship design and research, technical training and guidance. 2004: Took over overseas economic and technical cooperation work from the Overseas Shipbuilding Cooperation Centre
