We provide full engineering services for the preparation and execution of our heavy transport and heavy lift projects in close cooperation with our clients and the marine warranty surveyor (MWS). We are also supported by a network of partner engineering companies. Our engineering capabilities include:
- Project Engineering
Transportation and installation solutions, method statements, deck strength analyses, seafastening plans, lifting studies
- Structural Engineering
FEM studies, design of grillage and seafastening structures, retrofit projects
Motion response analyses, mooring studies, station keeping, workability, onboard motion monitoring systems, forecasting
Lifting & sailing conditions, ballast plans
As most heavy lift cargoes are unique, they require very careful planning and coordination down to the smallest detail. We gather and study precise information about the cargo and loading and discharging locations in the early preparation phase, often before the cargo is actually booked or the contract is even signed.
Our transport solutions are designed in-house by our team of highly skilled project managers, cargo superintendents, CAD draftsmen and engineering specialists. Our solutions ensure safe transportation that perfectly meets the client’s requirements and marine warranty standards. Plans for stowage, lifting, load spreading and seafastening are all prepared with our 2D and 3D CAD systems. If required, our engineering team performs detailed motion studies and structural assessments. Complicated lifting operations can also be simulated by using a step by step approach to prove their feasibility at every stage.
BigLift project managers and engineers are involved from the conceptual design and planning stages, right through until the execution and completion of a project such as an offshore oilfield and they work in close cooperation with clients all over the world.
