Ballast water treatment systems

We have proven experience in ballast water treatment  (BWT) retrofit projects with our designs being installed in over 110 seagoing vessels.  We have designed and successfully installed various BWT system from leading manufacturers.  Some of our retrofit projects have been an industry first and have received appreciation from ship owners, BWT system manufacturers and have been covered in various media outlets. 

Our innovative design process brings out the best possible retrofit design which not only saves time and cost during installation but also ensures ease of maintenance by crew.

Fuel system upgrades

With changing regulations and several fuel types to choose from, ship owners often have to adopt a mix of options for fuels to make their vessels compliant as well as profitable. 

We have carried out studies of the fuel storage, supply and delivery systems for a number of vessels for upgrading them to be able to use multiple types of fuels without issues.

We have provided the design for retrofitting of marine gas oil chiller plants, automated the fuel changeover system and modified the bunker and transfer system which was done using only photo of the location and a few available drawings. 


Energy optimisation

Our strong retrofit and technical expertise makes us the perfect consultants for recommending installation of various energy optimisation and energy saving devices. We are able to carry out in-depth study for the evaluation of such equipment and devices while also able to provide the complete integration plan along with detailed engineering.

Pressure drop and flow analysis

For our engineering projects, we utilise fluidflow software to simulate flow in pipes and assess factors such as flow rates, pressures, temperatures etc. Critical details like pump curves, pipe material, pipe elevation etc. are modelled in to give accurate calculations. This technique is useful to create realistic simulations and helps understand and mitigate risks such as cavitation to minimize wear to the pumping system.

A wide range of conditions can be simulated and its affect on the components can be examined. Components used in the design are further analysed to check if there is a possibility for any part upgrade in case it is required.
