BWTS Engineering Support

ONBOARD SURVEY & FEASIBILITY STUDY

Aries Greenship Solutions undertake a detailed feasibility study for selection of equipment based on type of vessel/operation requirement which includes study on the integration and modification in the existing piping system, flow and electrical power calculations, automation/instrumentation, installation requirements and a preliminary material take-off for the modification. The feasibility study shall be carried out for different BWT systems that client intend to shortlist.

The feasibility study includes:

  • Equipment Selection and System Integration
  • Ballast Pump and Auxiliary pump Flow Calculations
  • Electrical Load Analysis and Power System Distribution
  • System Valves -Automation and Control System
  • Hauling and Installing of Equipment
  • Preliminary Bill of Material

On-board Survey report and feasibility report with technical clarifications and conclusion is prepared.


ENGINEERING

Aries is a one stop solution for Ballast water treatment system installation needs, taking up the full range of engineering services from 3D scanning to Class approval matters to project management during installations. Aries, works on behalf of the owners/managers in performing the Engineering works – thus ensuring that their interests are given primacy, when designing the system layout. The following aspects, important to an owner/manager is given most consideration.

  • Afloat installation
  • Difficulties encountered
  • Feasibility Analysis
  • 3d scanning
  • 3d modelling
  • Clash check
  • Afloat installation
  • Minimum time in dock
  • Cost saving
  • Project Management

The above aspects will result in significant COST SAVINGS for the owners/managers while undertaking the actual installation.


Ballast water Management plan

Preparation and delivery of a new approved Ballast Water Management Plan (BWMP). The BWMP is to be delivered (approved) during installation and commissioning, before vessel leave yard. The new treatment system to be included in the BWMP, including new ballast procedures, reporting procedures etc.


PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Aries Greenship Solutions continues to play a major role in formulating and implementing specific needs of clients and operational requirements of charter. Our project management team ensures effective coordination of the various stages involved in the project execution. The vessel owner is provided with a hassle free compliance of the latest BWTS regulation.

The Aries Greenship Solutions has significant presence as the preferred third party inspectors in the maritime and offshore industry worldwide. Honed with years of experience, we have developed our capabilities to provide extensive inspection management services to the industry. Our management approach encompasses the entire project management of the inspection process ranging from planning, resource management, work scope, work pack compilation and data analysis.


3D SCANNING

Aries uses an advanced laser 3D Scanner for generating the As Built data. Our 3D scanner provides our Naval architects and Structural engineers with an efficient tool for rapid, seamless and precise documentation of the current status of any construction – offshore or onshore, ships, rigs, platforms, terminals, piping systems and structures of every kind.

Irrespective of whether particular Ballast water treatment system has been selected, it is imperative to have the vessel’s Engine room area is the probable equipment location to be 3D scanned. This will enable the client to keep this required information ready for quick take-off as soon as a final decision on installation of the BWTS is taken.

Aries Greenship Solutions using most advanced fast and accurate 3D scanning equipment. The 3D scanning will be carried out by our team during sailing. Our engineers onboard will

  • identify preferred locations for the installations,
  • trace the present routing of ballast lines,
  • identify fittings w r t system drawings onboard, so that as and when the owners take a decision on the make and type of BWTS, we will be in a position to complete the whole engineering tasks including drawings, schematics, 3D model and routing drawings.

The scanned 3D data of the complete engine room of the vessel can be retained and saved, so that it can be utilized as and when the installation process is about to commence. Our engineers can board the vessel at any port and accomplish the task during its sailing.


BASIC DESIGN

The engineering studies, calculations and drawings for the selected system. Based on available documentation, drawings and onboard survey results a complete proposal with all required class drawings. Finally preparation of a detailed proposal with treatment system modeled for owner’s approval

  • Engineering Plans
  • Structural Drawings
  • Schematic and P & IDs
  • Electrical SLDs

DETAIL ENGINEERING

Our detail engineering includes the preparation of detailed 3D model, extraction of Fabrication drawings from the 3D model generated ,detailed engineering drawings ,3D design model ,detail design calculations (pressure drop, pump characteristics, etc.). Proper optimization at engineering phase reduces the overall cost.
