SMC is pleased to announce that we are continuing with Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) retrofit management. On 12th July 2018, SMC carried out survey for a 20,600 m3 LPG Carrier, “Immanuel Schulte” at the jetty in Tuticorin, India. During the survey, the following items have been inspected on board the vessel:
- possible locations for the installation of the different components
- tie-in locations into existing piping systems
- wire routing, cable penetrations
- main switchboard for available space for additional breakers
Forward part of the engine room (floor level and 3rd deck level) has been 3D scanned and proposal of possible lay-out and installation is under development.
The whole design process is expected to take 12 weeks, including Class approval process. All production documentation, including material specification, will be finished before the vessel’s drydocking scheduled for October 2018. Installation process of BWTS will be carried out by repair yard and supervised by SMC.
