The most effective way to guarantee that a project is optimised is to ensure that the engineering is conducted in the early stages. The last thing anyone wants is to turn up to a ship or project and there are problems, due to last minute engineering decisions. Understanding the importance of the early stages of […]

According to the cargo particulars especially its height, it can be encountered the requirement of raising tween decks to allow the transportation of cargo. In this kind of cases, a new structures need to be provided with overall functionality with operationally practicality and work-ability and can be analysed and determined to be a safe working […]
As expected the largest pitch motions for the barge came from a stern sea. To gain a full barge transport analysis and manual takes time and this can be only obtained from Naval software and not from an Excel spreadsheet. MBM has a full specialised service for Barge transportation.
The initial operational details are provided to MBM. A general arrangement of the vessel will now be undertaken for each vessel based on the requirements from the shipowners. Each vessel requires different fuels systems, and thus a complete storyboard and service providers need to contacted to undertake each initial design review.
The initial discussion is presented to MBM. Within hours MBM team have a working potential solution to remove all visibility issues for the transportation of the tripiles on the deck of the vessel. A steel structure will need to be designed, and operational plan for lifting and loading the tripiles will need to be presented. […]
Assessing the rules and regulations of certain vessels, and undertaking stability , damage stability, tank strength analysis, it is potentially possible to increase some vessels dwt capacity and thus increase their revenue potential or increase their Net Worth on todays Brokerage market. For information on this service you should contact MBM.
Transportation costs are always an issue, as well as defining an optimised solution that will work in many variable vessel configurations. Understanding the operations of loading, stowage and securing, as well as the vessel environmental factors to include the vessel steel structure, plays a large role in determining a workable and safe combined solution for […]
The addition of Gas tanks on a coaster vessel proves to be effective for the operations regarding offshore contracts. The main topics discussed considered from an engineer’s point of view with the conversion are, maintaining access to all equipment, quick release change design, removal of deck deflection which may cause stress-fractures at the pipe connection, […]
When MBM was approached to conceive a solution to transport 1,000,000 tons of sludge water, it first seamed simplistic analysis of a free surface within a hold. However, as the project gained momentum, the detail design to solve all issues of settling during transport, loading and discharge were considered, it quickly became apparent that a […]
The transition of TP’s on the deck of a vessel always causes controversy. Which steel structural option to implement! There are two main focus’s, either Option 1 . A tailor made design. High initial investment, long term cost reductions, no vessel flexibility, repeat use for many multiple projects with the same cargo and vessel Option […]
