Our company will assist the Manufacturer in the IMO & USCG authorization phases of the BWTS plant, plan activities for international concessions, risk assessment related to the type of BWTS and verification / revision of the plant for certification purposes.
The real challenge is to verify the spaces useful for connection with the BWTS in the context of existing ships that will have to equip themselves with the BWTS. Verification of the starting point by on-board inspection and 3D laser scanning of the A.M. for connection with the BWTS rather than technical rooms potentially identified to accommodate a single BWTS box. 3D laser scanning allows a total reduction of direct and indirect costs, especially in rooms full of components and systems.
Reverse engineering consists in the conversion of scans made on board the ship and their union using spherical alignment tools
