We have experienced engineers working for us for all sorts of refits and new construction projects.
People that have a background in inland shipping and from that vantage point are able to turn your ideas into clear drawings that enable the shipyards to build the perfect ship for you.
If you have an open motor barge and you want to convert it to a motor-driven river barge or a self-propelled tanker, then we can organize that for you. Even a refit of a cargo vessel to a passenger ship is within our capabilities, provided it is within legislation and regulations.
Because our surveyors are properly appraised of legislation and regulations and partly thanks to their training and experience gained over the past number of years, they have had a really good look at what is and what is not possible, they can update you reasonably quickly as to whether your planned refit could be achieved or whether it is to sadly remain a pipe dream.
Amongst other things, we are able to arrange the following for you:
- Drawings for new construction
- Drawings for extensions
- Refurbishments of the hold
- Transverse section adaptations
- Tank capacity calculations
- Fitting higher decks
- Relocating or removing bulkheads etc.
An important aspect when preparing drawings is, that the engineer can properly envisage himself in the situation on board, so that no impossible structures are designed, where the welder has to squeeze himself into impossible bends when carrying out the work just to be able to weld components together. Spatial awareness is therefore very important and is also of paramount importance for us.
