Command Center

DC-Supply command center container mounted on Cube™ 20’ Flex Frame.

Flexible and cost-effective vessel conversion

Modern naval vessels must be capable of carrying out different missions and roles in both peacetime and wartime. Reconfiguring vessels for new missions can be both costly and time consuming. That is why SH Defence developed The Cube™.

The Cube™ is a flexible and cost-saving solution consisting of modular equipment with standardized interfaces enabling reconfiguration of vessels in less than 4 hours. All you need to do is unload the Cube™ modules that are no longer required and load the modules that support the vessel’s next mission.

Here we have taken a DC-Supply command center container and turned it into a 20’ Cube™ with our Cube™ 20’ Flex Frame.

Turning standard containers into Cubes™

The purpose of the Cube™ 20’ Flex Frame is to convert standard 20’ shipping containers into Cube™-ready high-cube containers that can be loaded and unloaded using the Mobile Cube™ Side Loader or the Mobile Cube™ Stern Loader.

The 20’ Flex Frame is a flexible welded steel structure with standard ISO corner castings for lifting and sea fastening. With the Cube™ 20’ Flex Frame from SH Defence,
you can turn any of DC-Supply’s 20’ containers into a Cube™. Please visit DC-Supply ( for more information on available standard and customised navy containers.

Type-approved design

The Cube™ 20’ Flex Frame is designed and typeapproved according to DNV GL ST-0378 for offshore and platform lifting appliances. The frame conforms to ISO 668 and is delivered with a CSC certificate for shipping.
