When transporting cargo, it’s not uncommon for the cargo’s height to require raising tween decks. However, in order to ensure overall functionality and operational practicality, it’s important to analyze and design new structures that can withstand the actual forces at play and ensure a safe working structure. To achieve this, the forces caused by vessel
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 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
The securing of cement components , stacked on wood, was an interesting topic to resolve. The main issue is to define the actual co-efficient of friction generated between the wood and the surface of the cement during transport. The cement has two types of surface, smooth and rough, and also concave and convex. Additionally, the
MBM was given a task to define a method to stow trains without additional D-rings or welding. The freight forwarder had the aim to maintain the operation without welding as it would be an issue at port of discharge and also to maintain costs of the project, and to assist in returning the vessel to
