A successful Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) installation starts with an accurate drawing that is achieved through the 3D scanning of your vessel’s structure. Therefore, precision is key. Ensuring that all components are correctly specified from the start can help prevent delays and ensure that the installation proceeds as efficiently as possible. A 3D scan of the vessel is a crucial step in this process.
The installation of BWTS on existing vessels is a complex and challenging process. Vessels have various sizes and designs, making it difficult to develop a one-size-fits-all system. In addition, the installation can be long-term and expensive, often requiring vessels to be dry-docked for an extended time.
3D scanning allows for a detailed, digital representation of the vessel’s layout to be created. This information can then be used to create precise drawings of the vessel’s compartments, which are essential for planning BWTS installations in these confined spaces. By having accurate drawings, engineers and technicians can identify potential challenges and develop solutions before the installation begins. This can help save time and money, as it reduces the need for costly changes or rework once the installation has already begun.
The 3D scanning of BWTS integrates several benefits:
The usual 3D scanning of BWTS integrates the following main steps:
At Mr. Marine Ballast, we understand the importance of precision when it comes to BWTS installations. That is why our high-quality technicians and equipment ensure that we get the best possible results every time. Our technicians are skilled and experienced in 3D scanning and they use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that the scans are as accurate as possible. Additionally, we use the latest software to turn the scan data into detailed drawings that can be used by our engineers and technicians to plan the BWTS installation.
Once the 3D scan and subsequent drawings have been completed, our team will work closely with you to develop a plan for the BWTS installation. This plan will take into account factors such as the vessel’s layout, the type of BWTS being installed and any potential challenges that have been identified during the 3D scanning process. Our team will also work with you to ensure that the installation is planned around your vessel’s schedule and that it is completed as quickly as possible.
