Intering GmbH was founded in 1969 by Horst Halten and had its headquarters in Norderstedt, near Hamburg, Germany. The business purpose was the development of stability systems for ships, both for static operation in port and for roll reduction on the high seas.
The systems developed by Intering still enjoy an excellent reputation today due to their quality and performance, which the company has earned through many innovations.
As early as1972, INTERING combined a U-tank roll damping system with a blower anti-heeling system on the M/V Algol, and in 1981 on the research icebreaker "Polarstern" it even combined roll damping with a Rapit Ice Heeling System, which enabled the ship to sail through 1.5 m thick ice at a minimum speed of 5 knots. At the same time, the combination ensured optimal seakeeping at low or no speed.
In 2001, INTERING GmbH was taken over by Rolls Royce Marine, who further expanded the business.
Since 2017, INTERING is now part of Hoppe Marine.
