3 years in development of revolutionary Offshore vessel moves into next phase. The ongoing design of a revolutionary offshore vessel 3 years in the development. The main purpose for this vessel is to be able to perform in higher significant wave heights and out-perform existing vessels in many key areas that cause loss of productivity. Thus utilizing operations […]

MBM assist the EPC with their first ever loading of a sea transportation aboard a vessel. The client is familiar with the rules and procedures with barge transportation, but has never transported on a vessel. The rules and process’s for a sea cargo transport to weld, engineer, and secure a cargo on a vessel are […]
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 review to extend a new build vessel was undertaken at MBM. The original vessel design was reviewed based on potential markets and operational conditions to provide an optimum working solution. The focus of the project was on operations. Defining the number of cranes, their frame location, the stability at these frames during lifting operations, […]
This vessel is being developed internally by MBM. It is now nearing the point for seakeeping analysis , hydrodynamics, slamming effects etc. Over the past years MBM has been heavily involved with the many project cargo and offshore wind energy transportation and also with the assistance of the transport to the installation sites. Thus, MBM […]
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. […]
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 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 […]
With only minor loading sequence and position issues, this exciting industry ground breaking project was loaded. When she sailed on her first voyage there was smiles from all parties concerned. These included:- • Insurance (P&I name) • Ship owner (Komrowski) • Cargo owner (UK – Greater Gabbard Project) • Cargo supplier (Siemens) • Project coordinator […]
