The recovery of the offshore market that began in Q4 2016 continues. Many  companies are starting to lock-in record low rates for both production and exploration drilling. The oil prices are expected to remain low. However there are a number of viable offshore projects today as a result of lower supply chain costs and revised development plans. It is anticipated near 30 potential  project awards will be made within next 12 months.

 

Albion Marine Solutions support our customers through the entire FSO/FPSO/FSU conversion project life cycle: Business Case development, Tendering, Planning, Procurement, Engineering, Construction, Commissioning and Installation.  

Our team has a proven track record of the  successful completion of offshore projects. This is achieved through the robust EPCM  life-cycle framework:
  • Diligent portfolio selection at the beginning
  • Investment commitment in design and planning stages
  • Setting adequate PMO , organization of project teams, partners and processes
  • Dedicated interface management between engineering and construction
  • Contractual risk sharing between client, owner/operators, EPCM and vendors
  • Effective tools for performance management and project control
  • Robust management of change system.
 

 

 

3D Laser Scanning and Engineering Services

Albion Marine Solutions provide 3D laser scanning,3D modelling, design and drafting services to maritime, offshore, construction and oil and gas industries. We specialize in 3D laser scanning for the maritime and industrial engineering and design applications. Every scan measures millions of discrete points and each point allocated its precise position in space. The three dimensional Point Cloud created that can be navigated, drafted, and modeled in popular CAD and other applications. The possibilities are endless from the Site Surveys, Damage Investigation to the Conversion Plans, Reverse Engineering, Conceptual Designs and Detailed Engineering.

 

 

3D Laser Scanning

Our team are factory trained and experienced professionals specializing in 3D Scanning. We utilize top of the line scanners with sub-millimeter accuracy. A number of 3D Scans are combined in a Point Cloud and represent the exact geometrical detail of the surrounding objects. From a Point Cloud the designers develop a model of the Machinery, Plant, Piping, Structure, Equipment for the Concept Design, Basic, Detailed and As-Built Engineering.
 

 

3D Modelling

Our designers use the latest 3D CAD Modelling software to prepare 3D Concept Models and Detailed Fabrication drawings for ship conversions, and plant upgrades including Custom Part and Assembly modelling, Prototype Design, Complex Construction Design, Structural Layouts, and Machinery.
 

 

Plot Plans

The laser scans of the plant, machinery, electrical cabling, piping systems and structure are extracted from the Point Cloud to create isometric drawings. Our designers use AutoCAD software to create these Plot Plan drawings. 
 

 

Vessel Hull Lines

Our designers use the latest 3D CAD Modelling software to prepare 3D Concept Models and Detailed Fabrication drawings for ship conversions, and plant upgrades including Custom Part and Assembly modelling, Prototype Design, Complex Construction Design, Structural Layouts, and Machinery.

 

Engineering Drafting

The 3D laser scan data is an irreplaceable tool in developing engineering design packages. Our designers combine the processed scan data, 3D models, existing arrangements, engineering design, and client requirements to create the required engineering deliverables: Conversion Specifications, Plans, and Detailed Fabrication drawings. The scan data can be imported directly into Revit, Autocad, 3DS, Civil3D, Navisworks, Archicad, Microstation, Rhino, Solidworks and more.
 

 

Vessel Retrofits Detailed Design

We use 3D modelling to develop an engineering design package and conversion specifications. Engineers prepare detailed machinery, steel work, pipe piece design and layout.

• Provide Material take-off list

• Complete documentation packages to satisfy the Class and Regulators

• Our team will also develop the Yard Specifications  

 

 

Offshore Conversion

3D scanning and modelling is a valuable tool in complex, multidisciplinary projects where precise cut out and fitment of new offshore equipment is a common Scope of Work.

Our personnel have extensive experience in offshore conversions and new builds: FSO, FPSO, FSRU, shuttles, oil rigs and platforms.  

 

 

Damage Assessment and Survey

Albion Marine utilizes 3D scanning and modelling for a Damage Survey of the hull and machinery. It helps to capture accurate data including changes in hull geometry and the disposition of damaged objects. In conjunction with a survey conducted by our experienced surveyors it provides concerned parties with the information required for investigations and remedial actions.
 

  

 

The marine air emission reduction legislations are fast changing.

On 1st  August 2006 the Baltic Sea became the first fully implemented SECA.

On 11th  August 2007 the North Sea and English Channel became the second SECA under European Commission Directive 2005/33.

On 1st  January 2015 the  SOx and related particulate matter  emissions were further reduced in ECAs by reducing fuel Sulphur content  to 0.10%.

In January 2014 North American ECA was implemented . It regulates  SOx, particulate matter and NOx.

 

 

Outside of ECAs, the global limit of sulfur in fuel was reduced to 3.50% at the beginning of 2012, and will be further reduced to 0.50% in 2020. This will significantly increase  the  Opex for most of ships.

Compliance with IMO air emission regulations is a major concern for Shipowners and has considerable operational and commercial impact. For the existing and new build  fleets trading to SECA and North America ECA areas a retrofit of the exhaust gas scrubbers, SCR or EGR could be a viable and a cost effective option.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Albion Marine Solutions is turn key service provider.  Our professional team  is well prepared  to plan, execute and support the retrofit  of  scrubbers, selective catalytic reduction (SCR)  and  exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)   systems  on clients’  vessels while managing the operational and technology risks, and sourcing the most cost-effective and reliable solutions from Capex and future Opex perspective.

Our experts can carry out a Feasibility Study and calculate pay back period based on vessel’s operational profile. We are available to assist Owners in selection of most suitable equipment and provide engineering, fabrication, retrofit  and project management service.

Albion Marine Solutions’ team members have extensive new build, conversion and operational  experience in  use of  natural gas as a fuel  and carriage as a cargo. 

 We have  required expertise to develop the solutions in variety of  natural gas fields, including:
  • LNG/CNG/LPG as a cargo
  • LNG as a fuel
  • MEGI conversion
  • CNG as a fuel 
  • LNG bunkering
  • LNG ship to ship operations
  • LNG terminals
  • Offshore storage and
  • Onshore and small engine application. 
 

The interest to the conversions to an LNG as a marine fuel is driven by stringent air emission reduction legislations  and Shipowners’ focus on  reduction of the bunker Opex. 

Albion Marine Solutions  provide consulting as well as  “end to end “  engineering and project management services for conversion of  power, propulsion and steam plants to LNG. 

Our technical and cryogenic experts work closely with customers to select the most viable lay out option.  

When developing the project specific  LNG/CNG solution there are number of considerations to keep in mind  such as  a boiler or engine technology, auxiliary equipment, naval architecture, marine engineering, yard management, training and bunkering  logistics.

Being Ship management professionals ourselves, we know how to work with multiple stakeholders in order to deliver the project on time and budget.
