Vessel : 104183 DWT Bulk carrier
Background : As the vessel is planned to undertake scrubber installation, there is a requirement of additional sea chest fabrication for the intakes and outlets of scrubber. Client engaged us for an engineering study and design solutions to finalize the sea chest position and piping onboard.
Scope of Assessment : Engineering study to identify the position of additional sea chest and preparation of all necessary drawings in the most cost effective way.
How we achieved?
As the vessel 3D scanned model was not available. Usually in such cases designers undertake 3D scanning and prepare a 3D model to prepare the engineering drawings. Our vast experience and expertise made us to analyse the exiting structural drawings, double bottom drawings, engine room construction drawing etc to propose the suitable location for the additional seachest. Once the location was finalized we conducted a feasibility study onboard the vessel to finalize the same. Sea chest drawings, hull penetration, side shell cutting drawings, piping diagrams and other production drawings were prepared and made approved by DNV-GLclass. As the 3D scanning and modeling was not considered for this engineering study there was a huge advantage in savings for the client.
Conclusion : At a very low cost incurred client could complete the engineering study and drawings preparation for the additional sea chest installation.Download the Case Study
