Mooring analysis

Mooring analysis

Various types of mooring are required based on the project requirement. Blue Water Engineering has the competencies to perform the mooring analysis and define the required equipment and structural modifications as a consequence of mooring equipment and its location.

Load-out/Load-in calculations

Load-out/Load-in calculations

For cargo loading operations, we do calculations based on specific project requirements such as skid load-out (including skid beam design), Ro/Ro load-out, temporary ballast system design and Load-out pulling system design and integration.

Voyage stability calculations

Voyage stability calculations

The stability calculations are being performed as per international codes and standards as well as per specific client and marine warranty surveyor requirements. Blue Water competent staff carry out calculations on intact stability as well as damage stability.

Structural design and analysis

Structural design and analysis

All kinds of cargo securing design and engineering verification are performed by Blue Water Engineering including the transport vessel strength calculations as per AISC, Eurocode and Classification Society’s requirements. We do global strength and buckling analysis.

Lifting operation design

Lifting operation design

For cargo loading operations, we perform various services including Lifting plans, Rigging, Lift points design, Crane checks, Two-block upending as well as Jacking and sliding calculations.

Installation analysis

Installation analysis

The installation of offshore assets requires precise engineering engaged in the early stages of the asset design, aiding the design. Blue Water Engineering provides turnkey engineering solutions for efficient operation based on project needs and international codes and standards.

Field Service Superintendents
