Technical-economic feasibility studies
Technical-economic feasibility studies are essential in the maritime industry to assess the viability of a project before investing significant time and resources. These studies evaluate the technical feasibility of a project, including the design, construction, and operation of a ship or marine structure. Additionally, these studies evaluate the economic feasibility of a project, including the estimated costs and benefits of the project.
Documentation control is crucial in naval architecture and marine engineering to ensure that all relevant documents are up-to-date, accurate, and easily accessible. This control ensures that there is clear communication between all parties involved in a project and that everyone has access to the latest information.
Project management collaboration
Collaboration with project management is essential to ensure that all aspects of a project are effectively managed. This collaboration involves regular communication between the project management team and the naval architecture and marine engineering team to ensure that the project is progressing according to plan and that any issues are identified and addressed promptly.
Ship valuations are an important aspect of the maritime industry as they help to determine the value of a ship or marine structure. Valuations take into account factors such as the vessel's age, condition, and market demand. These valuations are essential for making informed decisions when buying or selling a ship, obtaining financing, or insuring a vessel.
Flag projects involve the registration of a vessel with a specific flag state, which has regulatory requirements that must be met. This process is essential for ensuring a vessel complies with international standards and regulations, such as safety, environmental, and labour laws. Proper flag registration can also help ensure that a vessel is insured and can operate in international waters.
Towing studies are necessary for evaluating the feasibility of towing a vessel. These studies take into account various factors, such as the vessel's size and weight, the distance to be towed, and the towing vessel's capacity. Towing studies are essential for ensuring that the towing operation is safe and cost-effective.
Naval Architecture Studies
Naval architecture studies involve the design and optimization of ships and marine structures.
These studies include hydrodynamic and structural analysis, stability calculations, and safety assessments. Naval architecture studies are essential for ensuring that vessels are safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly.
Basic engineering involves the development of technical specifications and requirements for a vessel or marine structure. These specifications include mechanical, electrical, and structural design requirements, as well as the selection of appropriate materials and equipment. Basic engineering is crucial for ensuring that a vessel meets its intended performance requirements
Electric Propulsion Projects
Electric propulsion projects involve the conversion of traditional propulsion systems to electric or hybrid systems. These projects can result in improved efficiency, reduced emissions, and lower operating costs. Electric propulsion projects are particularly relevant for pleasure vessels, where eco-friendliness and cost-effectiveness are increasingly important considerations for boat owners.
Marine Inspections and Surveys
Marine inspection and surveys are an essential part of ensuring the safety and efficiency of ships and other marine structures. In this post, we will discuss the importance of draft surveys, bunker surveys, stowage plans, and loss & adjusters surveyors in naval architecture and marine engineering.
Draft surveys are used to determine the weight of cargo on board a vessel by measuring the vessel's draft before and after loading or unloading. This information is crucial for ensuring that the vessel is not overloaded and is operating safely and efficiently
Bunker surveys are conducted to verify the quantity and quality of fuel on board a vessel. These surveys are essential for ensuring that the vessel has sufficient fuel to complete its journey and that the fuel meets the required standards.
We developed stowage plans to ensure cargo is loaded and secured safely and efficiently on a vessel. These plans consider various factors, such as the size and weight of the cargo, the vessel's stability, and the voyage route. Proper stowage plans are crucial for ensuring the safety of the crew, the vessel, and the cargo.
Loss & Adjusters surveyors
As loss & adjusters, and surveyors, we are responsible for investigating and assessing marine insurance claims. Our surveyors work closely with Naval Architects and Marine Engineers to determine the cause and extent of the damage or loss and to provide accurate assessments of the costs involved in repairing or replacing the damaged or lost property.
We conduct inclining experiments to determine a vessel's stability characteristics. These experiments involve measuring the vessel's inclination, or heel, at various angles and loading conditions. The results of these experiments are used to develop a stability curve, which is a graphical representation of the vessel's stability characteristics. This curve is used to determine the vessel's maximum safe loading conditions and to ensure that it is operating within safe limits
We create stability booklets, which provide detailed information on a vessel's stability characteristics, including its stability curve and maximum safe loading conditions. These booklets are legally required for all vessels and essential for ship operators and crew. The information in these booklets is used to determine the vessel's loading conditions and ballasting requirements and ensure that the vessel operates safely and efficiently.
Yacht Refit Projects
