Conceptual, Pre-Contractual and Basic Design of Structure and Outfitting

A good CONCEPTUAL DESIGN prior to contract is crucial for an optimum project development. Our conceptual designs are specific to the type of project and to the client’s needs

The design criteria for the development of the STRUCTURE BASIC DESIGN are defined according to cargo conditions, Classification Society, applicable regulations and shipyard standards.

The design criteria for the development of the outfitting basic design depend on the equipment, shipyard standards, Classification Societies and applicable regulations. Tube diagrams and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) are issued, together with the arrangement of engine room, thrusters spaces and auxiliaries spaces

Naval Architecture

A profound knowledge of the rules that define vessel classes allows us to perform the following analysis/studies/calculations to offer our clients the optimum solution to their projects:

Structure Detail Design

We perform a complete engineering and develop and issue all the necessary technical detailed documents, based on the basic engineering drawings, so the shipyard can focus on building the unit

Outfitting Detail Design

We perform a complete engineering and develop and issue all the necessary technical detailed documents, based on the basic engineering drawings, so the shipyard can focus on building the unit

  • Materials specification.
  • Seatings plans.
  • Complete 3D model (equipment, seatings, tubes and auxiliary structures).
  • Loss of cargo calculations.
  • P&I.
  • Weights and centre of gravity of P&I.
  • 2D and 3D plans.
  • Penetration plans.
  • Tube support analysis.
  • Support plans.
  • Metallic equipment.
  • HVAC definition.
  • Ventilation diagrams.
  • Materials list.
  • Equipment list.
  • Accommodation.

Technical documentation and technical purchase specifications

Although we focus on design, we also define all the required technical documents and even give detailed purchase specifications for the shipyard, ensuring our clients the most profitable solution

We perform a follow-up of the purchase management and an evaluation is made once the shipyard offers have been received

Rescue and Fire Fighting

We always seek to maximize safety at sea, which is a design criterion in all project phases

We specialize in the definition of escape routes, fire fighting systems and rescue systems. All necessary safety drawings are given to avoid human losses at sea and ensure safe operation

We also conduct special safety studies (HAZOPS…)

Offshore Structures Design

We are experts in the design and analysis of offshore structures (fixed and floating) whether they may be used for the oil industry, energy or aquaculture purposes

We have participated, in amongst others, in the conceptual and basic design phases of offshore projects performed in Spain and for projects for oilfields in the North Sea, Mexico, Occidental Africa and Brazil
