Conversion of General cargo barge to RSV Type 2 Oil tanker
Whether it is new building or conversion, all projects start with a Technical discussion to meet the Owner’s requirement and specification which will enable to define the project accordingly.
For the Conversion of General cargo barge to RSV Oil tanker a feasibility study was carried out and submitted to the Owner. The conversion included major modifications like addition of longitudinal bulkheads, transverse bulkheads and the compartment for Pump room. Due to the increase in Lightship weight, it was important for us to meet the freeboard and draft requirements so as to satisfy the desired carrying capacity. Also due to this conversion into Oil tanker the vessel had to satisfy the Damage stability requirements of MARPOL.
Structural Analysis for Lifting Lugs
Structural Analysis were undertaken to verify the lifting padeyes for the hull block. Determination of the location of the lifting padeye was very important as the centre of gravity had to be balanced during the lifting. Plans indicating the location of the padeyes on the hull block were prepared after the analysis and submitted to Class and approvals were accorded.
The hull blocks have been transported from Goa to Mumbai wherein they have attached to the ship, block by block.
Conversion of RO-RO vessel to Livestock Carrier
Conversion of RO-RO vessel to Livestock Carrier, has been completed under the classification of Indian Register of Shipping. The 9589 GT vessel with seven decks has been converted from Vehicle carrier to Livestock carrier at Turkey.
The conversion included the preparation of Statutory Plans like Stability Analysis, Tonnage Computation, Damage Control Plan, Damage Control Booklet and other relevant plans required by the Class. Our Company’s representative conducted the Inclining Experiment at Turkey and submitted the final documentation to Class for approval. The conversion of the Panama-flagged vessel was successfully completed.
Design of India's First Advertisement Vessel
AMS has designed the India’s first ‘Digital Advertisement Vessel, under the Classification of Indian Register of Shipping. The 26M vessel is successfully operating at Bandra Worli Sealink, Mumbai. The major challenge for the implementation of this project was to optimize the design and steel weight of the vessel considering the draft limitations due to varying water depth availability near the coastline and also to fulfill the Stability requirements due to the high windage profile of LED screens mounted onboard.
The collective effort and team work of our Naval Architects & Engineers have overcome all hurdles and challenges towards successful completion of this project.
SPS COMPLIANCE FOR SUPPLY VESSELS
As per the requirements of the Indian Flag, Classification Rules and IMO resolution A.534(13) for SPS compliance, all plans related to the Stability like Intact stability booklet, Damage stability booklet, Damage control plan, Damage control booklet, etc., Statutory plans like LSA, LSS, FCP, Crew accommodation, etc., Machinery and Navigation plans, all relevant to this compliance were prepared and submitted for Class approval.
Our team of Naval Architects had undertaken this SPS Compliance for various ships without altering the main Hull structure and with minimum interference with the existing arrangements onboard. All the vessels are in operation and are performing to the satisfaction of the Owner.
Conversion of Dredger into Oil Barge
The feasibility of the above conversion was carried out to meet the Owner’s requirement. All the necessary plans and documentation required by the Classification society were prepared and submitted for the Class approval. The vessel has successfully converted into Oil Barge from Dredger.
STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF MAIN DECK AND HATCH COVERS FOR LOADING OF WINDMILL BLADES ON BULK CARRIERS
- Our team has completed the Structural Analysis for the Main Deck and Hatch Covers for loading of Windmill Blades to ensure that the stress levels on the deck and hatch covers are lesser than the allowable stress. All the necessary plans and documentation required by the Classification Society, CLASS NK and ABS were prepared and submitted for the Class approval.
- The analysis was carried out within 24 hours and forwarded to the Client, so that they could carry out the operation of loading the blades without any delay. Hence, our team is capable of providing round the clock service i.e., 24/7/365 service as per the Clients’
DESIGN and STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF EXTENSION PLATFORM FOR LOADING OF WINDMILL BLADES ON BULK CARRIERS
Our team has Designed the Pedestals and completed the Structural Analysis, through manual computation and software analysis for various arrangements and verified the allowable stress values. The weight estimation carried
out and the drawings were prepared and submitted to Class Nk and ABS for the approvals.
Our Naval Architects have performed the repetitive analysis for various vessels with different arrangements to reduce the Structural weight and ensure the optimum scantling that will lead to reduction in the material cost.
Cargo Securing Manuals and Lashing Calculation for various vessels
Our team had successfully completed the Cargo Securing, Lifting and Lashing Calculation for various vessels in accordance with CSS Code or as per Classification Rules and approvals for the same were accorded.
TANK CONVERSION OF SUPPLY VESSELS
- Our team had assisted in the Conversion of Mud oil tanks into Base oil tanks for Supply vessels. Our scope of work included preparation of General Arrangement Plan, Tank Capacity Plan, Liquid Mud & Base oil piping system, Tonnage Computation and Addendum to the Trim & Stability Booklet. The approvals from Class were accorded on time.
