What we do
31st July 2019
As part of this conversion TSG Marine were contracted by a client to provide our engineering and technical review of all the drawings supplied by the ships builder and certification body to ensure what was being proposed was actually achievable.
Further to this TSG Marine carried out a survey on board the vessel using our state of the art 3D laser scanning equipment and applying the point cloud to the drawings to see if there were any issues or snagging points which could be a hazard during the actual fit out.
The business sector that TSG Marine work in revolves around timing and this was not on our side, with only one week from the acceptance of our surveys TSG Marine was given the contract to carry out the installation and mobilisation of the vessel.
The initial work was completed within a dry dock environment allowing the vessel owner to carry out needed maintenance and vessel upgrades, this also allowed us to make the necessary structural modifications in a stable environment and more importantly allowed us to install the LARS system into the side of the vessel.
During the installation a number of other jobs arose on the vessel which were also completed, these included major vessel upgrades, additional class approved freeing ports were fabricated and installed, repairs and modifications were made to the vessel kort nozzles, a full engineering design and FEA was completed prior to the fabrication and installation of the new chain locker chutes.
The ROV installation required major structural work to the hull of the vessel, deck and internal bulkheads, rerouting of pipework and electrical cable routes. All new deck and deck beams were fabricated from Class approved materials and also under the watchful eye of a Class Surveyor.
In addition to the installation, TSG Marine had to create an ROV office and pilot room with all the necessary equipment to allow the operators to operate the ROV. This also required TSG Marine to install clear communication lines, dynamic positioning indication system, high voltage lines and new HYPAP references systems.
Once all of the systems were installed, thorough required tests were completed with the vessel, the new referencing systems were tested and the ROV undertook functional & load testing.
