Pelsoproject - Ship Design and Consultancy - was founded in 1991 by Péter Pál Lehel, naval architect and enterpreneur.
The work began with one draughtswoman (Rózsa Lászlóné) and the occassional co-operation of 4 independent designers (+Kun Gábor, Szabó József, Szelle Zoltán, Virágh Zoltán). The year 2000 brought significant changes in the life of our office: three young, full-time colleagues joined the team; the drawing-boards were replaced by computers, and we switched to CAD (computer-aided design) systems.
Most of our clients come from Hungary, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We are particularly proud of our co-operation with shipyard Bodan-Werft Metallbau GmbH. (in Kressbronn, Germany), that lasted from 1992 until the close-down of the shipyard in 2011. Our most important Hungarian partners are the directorates of water management, Balatoni Hajózási Zrt., Halászati Zrt., the already successful and the fledgeling shipping enterpreneurs as well as the boat owners.
Our company became an Ltd. in 2006. Currently, our team consists of four qualified engineers who consistently perform at a very high level in our design projects. In case of increased workload, our office can count on the help of experienced contractors. We are equipped with the most advanced hardware and software tools in order to fulfil the highest requirements in the design, production and evaluation processes.
Our main activity is ship design. Our products range from pleasure sailing yachts and motor boats, through 1000-person passenger ships up to car ferries, merchant ships and special-purpose floating objects such as ice-breakers. Besides the design activity, we also engage ourselves in the production supervision, the tests, trials and measurement procedures of ships. We also support our clients with guidance, valuation, expert activity and professional studies.
Péter Pál Lehel
Naval architect (MSc), managing director and founder of the company
Naval Architect - technical expert
Graduated in naval architecture, from the University of Rostock (Germany). After his return to Hungary, he started working for the design office of shipyard "Balatonfüredi Hajógyár". From 1984, he was the chief designer, who controlled the development, design and construction of the custom-built ships as well as the serial-products of the shipyard.
The beginning of the '90-s found him leading the design department of Shipyard ÖSWAG (Korneuburg, Austria) as the chief naval architect. As the shipyard was reorganized and later closed down, he - having trust in the outblossoming possibilities at his homeland at the time - founded the Pelsoproject Ship Design Office, already before his final return to Hungary. Today, besides managing both business and professional activity of the company, he takes part in the education of the new generation of naval architects and shipbuilders.
Mechanical engineer (MSc),
Naval Architect - technical expert
Graduated in mechanical engineering, from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, he has 17 years of experience and an outstanding knowledge of CAD systems.
He is also a qualified economist expert engineer, who graduated from the University of Dunaújváros. His professional activity covers the preparation of preliminary designs, project plans, technical-economical valuation of different concepts, cost-benefit analyses and cost optimizing. As a design engineer, he is most often busy with ship propulsion, machinery, equipment and installations of ships, but he is also comfortable with structural strength analysis (also fith FEM), design and construction management of steel structures.
Naval architect (MSc),
Naval architect - technical expert
Graduated in naval architecture, from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, he has 10 years of experience and is an excellent user of computational design and analysis tools. He is also a qualified economist, specialized in economic management, graduated from the University of West Hungary. His special field includes: interior and outer design, weight calculation, ship hydrostatics, resistance computations, hull shape design, stability computations and strength computations (using FEM), design of hull structures, detail drawings by using advanced 3D design software. He is also familiar with propulsion, engine installation, shafting, steering gear, etc.. He supports the production process by workshop drawings and cutting patterns. He is capable of designing and supervising the manufacture of composite stuctures as well.
Naval architect (MSc)
Graduated in naval architecture, from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, he has 9 years of engineering experience. He contributes to the work of the office by using his 3D design skills and programming skills to carry out different types of simulation, such as torsional vibration analyses, FE strength computations and CFD analysis. As a design engineer, he draws plans of, and analyzes hull structures and superstructures. He deals with ship hydrostatics, stability and leakage computations and works out workshop drawings as well.
