Albion professionals project management team is well reliable and adhere to a cost-effective approach for successful project completion, including a time for interactions with third parties such as Class, BWTS vendors, suppliers of OFE, logistics, technical procurement, etc.

 

Ship Site Survey and 3D Scan: Albion Marine Solutions has an experienced Ship Site Survey team to onboard a vessel of any type to conduct an onboard survey. The survey team will use modern measuring and laser scanning equipment for their site survey to determine the exact location for any new equipment. The scanning team will identify all utility tie-in points for all systems under consideration.

 

Feasibility Study: Selection for BWTS System: Albion Marine Solutions provides its engineering expertise for selecting the BWT system for installation onboard (retrofit) of the subject vessel. Albion Marine Solutions is very well familiar with most of the BWT systems available in the market. Our key personnel have attended the training and production facilities of several major manufacturers. Also, our project personnel have hands-on experience with the integration and operation of several various BWT systems.

 

Engineering Package (Concept Designs +Basic Engineering + Detailed Engineering): Albion Marine Solutions engineering work is an evaluation of the proposed Concept Design and its discussion with the stakeholders. The Concept Design will be developed on findings from the Ship Site Survey and the conclusions of the feasibility study. Then in Basic Engineering, the project team will deliver the generic and functional designs of the main components and systems, including piping, cabling, various foundations, etc. Lastly, The Detailed Engineering phase involves close coordination and synchronization among different engineering disciplines, with all in-house resources working interactively and progressively.  
Prefabrication: Albion Marine offers a turnkey pre-fabrication package. Pre-fabrication is a critical component of retrofit activities. Albion Marine handles the entire pre-fabrication of the piping and foundations. Albion Marine would also provide all necessary valves, cables, and breakers and cover all the material acquisition costs, including freight.

 

Installation Retrofit Management: Albion Marine will organize a riding crew for the BWTS installation once it is in service. The system installation onboard will be completed by the riding squad, which will include electrical and steelwork. Albion Marine Solutions Ltd. provides trained and certified electricians, mechanics, pipefitters and technicians to ensure safe and efficient repairs and retrofits onboard the ships at sea or in ports. The voyage repairs are carried out on board the vessels without hampering the routine operation of the vessels and thus no commercial loss for the clients. Riding Squads are composed based on the nature of the job scope. Albion can take up voyage repairs or work in the shipyard for new build and during routine dry-dock repairs with the Riding Squads.

 

Commissioning: Albion Marine Solutions Ltd. offers highly skilled engineers with vast experience to assist with the commissioning of various systems. Commissioning on site is nearly always done in the presence of the client and, if required, an official representative of a classification society. An essential aspect of commissioning is the testing of capacity and functionality. Our qualified engineers conduct installations and commissioning worldwide and provide practical, feasible and comprehensive solutions to the challenges arising from any project.

Ship Sanitation

In 2020 COVID-19 took the shipping industry by surprise. As a precaution ship Owners and Operators should sanitize their vessels.

If proper sanitation measures are not in place, ships are particularly prone to disease outbreaks. Ships have isolated communities with close accommodations, shared sanitary facilities and common food and water supplies. Such conditions can be favourable to the spread of infectious diseases.

Cleaning, sanitation, and decontamination services for vessels need specialized training, experience, and equipment. Albion Marine Solutions specializes in cleaning and decontamination for cruise ships, passenger vessels, yachts, offshore platforms, and boats. Our team can complete ship sanitation at ports or during voyage thanks to our riding squad.

We provide trained and certified personnel to perform sanitation services worldwide. We assist the maritime industry to prevent and control the introduction, transmission, and spread of illnesses onboard.

SAMPLE PROJECTS

ALBION MULTI PURPOSE VESSEL (MSMM)

 

Albion Marine Solutions has developed and designed a multi-purpose vessel (MSMM) that fully complies with the highest safety and environmental concerns to reduce the carbon print during its operation and performance standards. MSMM vessel will enable the Coast Guard to carry out multiple missions; these vessels can deliver a wide range of programs while maximizing mission modularity, innovation, green technologies, and an adequate return on investment.

According to Albion Marine Solutions Director, Mr. Sergiy Yakovenko, "Multi-Purpose Vessels (MSMM) primarily will help in supporting a variety of missions including icebreaking, navigation aids, environmental Ecosystem marine response and search and rescue, charting, offshore search, SAR operations, hydrographic work, and payload supports."

 ALBION ZERO - TRUE ZERO EMISSION FERRY

 

 

Albion Marine is proud to be on the front lines of new electric and hybrid propulsion technologies for existing fleets and new builds. It is already a few years since we have completed a concept design for an actual zero-emission cable ferry- Albion Zero. The concept utilizes solar power and the power of river streams to generate sufficient charge for ferry operation. The ferry carries eight vehicles or two large trucks and capable of operating in shallow waters. The vessel does not need an electric grid, and it does not utilize engines during the regular process.

Director of Albion Marine Mr. Yakovenko says: “It is an elegant engineering concept specifically designed for a river crossing in remote Northern location with limited or non-existing infrastructure. Our modular design makes it suitable for a large range of ferry designs. The conversion payback period only a few years”.

 

AIR ABATEMENT TECHNOLOGY FLOATING UNIT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Albion Marine Solutions provides a scrubber barge solution for vessels in port that helps reduce Sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and submicron particulate matter in exhaust gas regardless of vessel size and engine size. Our newly developed air abatement technology is being installed in a floating unit. It’s a unique concept for preserving the marine environment and ecosystem. The Albion Marine Solutions treatment plant floating system (Air Abatement Technology unit designed by Andritz) is propelled by a battery-powered electrical propulsion system, increasing efficiency, and decreasing operational costs. It can operate at any port or harbors located worldwide as well as in the Canadian territory.

The Floating system is designed with all safety standards and regulates as per SOLAS & IMO, and other Canadian regulations. Scrubber Barge (Air abatement technology floating unit) is equipped with all safety systems & unmanned monitoring systems that can be manned with less crew members.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ALBION FLOATING DRONE STATION: Albion floating drone station design is specially drawn to address the facilities and operating requirements of onshore drone station. Albion drone station can be used for variety of purposes such as forest fire fighting, surveying and patrolling activities near the forest and inland waterways.

 

 

23 M HYBRID PATROL VESSEL: Albion hybrid-classed patrol vessel can operate on electric and diesel engines for the Coast Guard. The vessel is designed and assembled following SOLAS, IMO, and Canadian regulations. In all weather and sea state conditions, the hull is planned and configured to counteract the sloshing effects of the wave and strengthen the vessel's seakeeping and maneuverability.

 

 

LNG PASSENGER FERRY : Albion's newly developed LNG powered ferries are designed to operate between the various ferry terminal across the Canadian inland waterways. The hull of this ferry has been optimized to achieve a low drag at high speed thereby reducing the speed and achieve maximum engine efficiency. The super structure is designed with aim of reducing the air drag and reduce resistance.
