ICE has successfully performed many ship conversion designs, including for commercial vessels, warships, offshore oil & gas platforms and FPSOs. Its reference list also includes retrofit design for installation of ballast water treatment (BWT) and scrubber systems on different types and sizes of ships.
ICE recently arranged a 3-day workshop focused on using AVEVA Everything 3D (AVEVA E3D) and AVEVA Laser Modeller software as integration tools. The software enables point clouds generated by laser scans to be readily converted into intelligent, “as-built” 3-D design models. This will enable ICE designers to base their modification and retrofit design on accurate data, thus improving productivity and minimizing rework.
With the new IMO regulations for BWT coming into effect in September this year and stringent new limitations for exhaust gas emission taking effect in 2020, there is an increasing need for ship designers that can offer unbiased advice on equipment selection and develop retrofit solutions, ranging from ship survey and conceptual design through to detail working drawings and installation supervision.
With a 50-year history of design for clients world-wide – and being totally independent of equipment suppliers, shipyards and installation contractors – ICE stands ready to provide neutral guidance and cost-effective design to meet the new regulations.
