    Initial Design

    Initial Design is performed at the very first stage of the project. Wärtsilä Ship Design assists the customer in finding the best solution and supports in analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of different options. The vessel is designed to a suitable level of detail to bid tendering to yards and to allow sub-contractors to quote equipment.

    Conversions

    We offer a wide range of engineering services from evaluation phase and tendering to design and building phase. The project scope can vary from a simple vessel modification or equipment integration to a complete project. Our experience within the field of conversions and retrofits consist of application examples such as;

    • Lengthening
    • Widening for capacity increase
    • Structural reinforcements
    • Integration of new equipment – winches, towers, cranes etc
    • Upgrade of propulsion and machinery systems:
      • For fuel saving or for environmental compliance: E.g. Ducts, fins, propeller tuning, scrubbers, ballast water management systems, LNG/dual-fuel propulsion
      • For higher demand: e.g in speed, bollard pull, manoueuvring, dynamic positioning et.
    • Shipyard design support such as for enfine room basic and detail design
