ICE would normally send its engineers anywhere in the world to perform surveys and onboard laser scanning as part of designing ballast water treatment system (BWTS) retrofits. However, due to pandemic-related travel restrictions, for design of a new BWTS for a 310,000-dwt crude oil carrier, scanning data were instead provided by Aitken Marine International, a Dubai-based project management company with which ICE has a cooperation agreement.

In addition to converting the electronically transmitted cloud points into a 3D model of the affected spaces, ICE’s scope of work included basic design with systems diagrams update, arrangements in the engine room and pump room, and electrical systems updates. The work scope also included detail design with piping isometrics, foundation drawings and material take-offs.

With time now running out for oceangoing ships to be fitted with BWTS installations, the industry is expecting a rush of last-minute orders. ICE is ready to assist Owners as well as yards and equipment suppliers.
