Minimising disruption to vessel trading – BWTS installation on board bulk carrier

Minimising disruption to vessel trading – BWTS installation on board bulk carrier

The challenge

SeaTec and Dania Ship Management in Copenhagen have previously collaborated on a number of ballast water treatment system (BWTS) installation design projects. As a result, Dania awarded SeaTec the full turnkey installation on board the Clipper Triumph, a 30,000 DWT bulk carrier. The vessel was trading in remote regions, with a monthly stop in Singapore.

 

The situation

The small bulker vessel, accommodating a maximum of seven berths, was operating on a tight schedule. As a result, there were limited opportunities to load materials and embark crew.

The project consisted of three stages:

Engineering: This stage required a 3D scan of the vessel. The piping installation plan was prepared and isometric drawings for the prefabrication of pipes were completed.

Procurement and logistics: This involved the procurement of electrical materials and the prefabrication of piping and equipment foundations.

Installation: A SeaTec Riding Squad team of mechanics, fitters and welders sailed with the vessel for approximately two months, under the supervision and guidance of a SeaTec project manager.

SeaTec Subsea was later involved during a stop in Singapore for the blinding of shell valves underwater.

 

The outcome

Due to the close cooperation between SeaTec’s Projects & New Builds department, Riding Squads and the Subsea team, the project was successfully completed within a two-month timeframe. At the same time, additional inspection services, including MPI’s, were carried out in order to align with SeaTec’s quality standards.

 

Results & Impact

7 technicians to complete retrofit, without incident, delay or stoppage.

60 days spent at sea on board vessel during installation.
