How to quickly gain a complete overview of the as-is situation of ships

How to quickly gain a complete overview of the as-is situation of ships
August 2018 - The existing or ‘as-is’ situation is an important starting point for design work in ship maintenance or modification projects. To ensure that any new systems and configurations will ‘fit’ instead of resulting in a design clash, Designers need exact information about the current situation on board. Unfortunately, many ships lack proper documentation, and, in some cases, there are no drawings available...

Why you should incorporate motion analyses during the concept design phase

Why you should incorporate motion analyses during the concept design phase
June 2018 - A motion analysis is often performed later in the project, during the basic or detailed design phase for example. In many cases, the main characteristics of the floater are at that point already frozen. In other words, the results of the motion analyses can no longer be used to change the design of the vessel. For example, the main drivers for a FPSO concept design are (roughly) storage capacity and integration of the...

Potential benefits of total battery powered submarines

Potential benefits of total battery powered submarines
June 2018 - Are total battery powered submarines the future? Who knows. With modern battery technology the roadmap for total battery powered submarines seems feasible. Simulations with a created concept design show that with current battery technology local to medium range missions are already feasible. This makes a total battery powered submarine an interesting option for navies who want to use their submarine mainly for homeland...

Nevesbu contributes to life extension program HNLMS Rotterdam
May 2018 - For HNLMS Rotterdam, 2018 will be a year of major maintenance and upkeep work. The ship is currently docked at Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam, where a sizable part of the work is being performed. Nevesbu supports DMI, the maintenance organisation of the Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN), in the engineering for the ship’s systems integration.

Engineering challenges of the Petrojarl I modification project highlighted

Engineering challenges of the Petrojarl I modification project highlighted
December 2017 - From treating North Sea oil to treating heavy crude oil for the Atlanta field off the coast of Brazil; the Petrojarl I FPSO has recently undergone a complete modification. More than 50% of the process equipment on board has been demolished and replaced by new equipment in order to make the FPSO suitable for the Atlanta field. All this had to be done in accordance with the most stringent specifications and Brazilian...
