3D laser scanning for BWTS (Ballast Water Treatment) - EGCS (Exhaust Gas Cleaning) systems

The IMO (International Maritime Organization) developed and adopted the “International Convention for the Control and Management of Ballast Water, Ballast Water and Sediment Ships, 2004” (Ballast Water Management Convention) with the aim of protecting the marine environment of the transfer of harmful aquatic organisms in ballast water carried by ships.

Scanphase collaborates with naval companies and field specialists and offers high quality services for shipping companies to comply with the Ballast Water Management Convention (BWM) in all Spanish ports (Valencia, Algeciras, Barcelona, ​​Las Palmas, Bilbao, Santander ...) and southern Europe.

Ship Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) Laser Scanning

The BWM (Ballast Water Management) Convention entered into force on September 8, 2017 and according to it, all ships in international traffic must manage their ballast water and sediments according to a certain standard, in accordance with a management plan for specific ballast water for the ship. Boats must install a ballast water treatment system on board.

Typically, the ballast water treatment system goes into the engine room or pump room of a ship. The installation of a new and large system to a functioning ship involves a great deal of time and effort because of the complicated piping systems and machinery already present. The traditional method of creating detailed drawings requires manual measurements to replicate the actual site layout. Any remodeling to accommodate the new system will have to be done based on these manually-produced drawings. This entails numerous on-site inspections of the ship, and enormous amounts of design time. In addition, limitations that come with manual measurements mean that a slight error on paper could amplify to become a much larger design fault during execution.

Scanphase offers an extremely fast measurement process and offers an accurate 3D scan of the network pumps and pipes critical to the BWT (Ballast Water Treatment) system so that engineers can:

  • Agree on an efficient ballast water management plan

  • Accurately implement the BWT plan

  • Easily install BWT system

  • Keep complete records of the area of ​​interest.

Once the laser captures the data points in the target area, the accompanying software processes and builds complete 3D models with the data. The new ballast water treatment system  BWTS and its piping system can be seamlessly planned and integrated with the affected structures. The ability to plan ahead, based on accurate 3D models, allows you to create an optimal design and account for lead time for crucial elements such as detailed structural designs, production materials, and engineering drawings. In addition, it is easier to get an idea of ​​the overall design after installation of the BWT ballast water treatment system (Ballast Water Treatment System) and identify potential problems. This would be difficult to tackle with the traditional 2D model.

Due to the time savings provided by the laser scanner, the duration of the project is shortened successfully. Instead, you can spend time and effort installing the system. Accessories design, production and installation can be better managed, allowing each project to be completed in due time.

To get jobs done in a short amount of time, it is imperative that shipping companies look for ways to cut down on working hours, while controlling a faultless installation. To that end, laser scanning technology is the most effective means of capturing large volumes of data in a short period of time for the construction of accurate 3D models. This may be the most efficient and promising solution to the imminent challenge of producing countless water ballast treatment systems to meet the needs of the shipping industry for years to come.

We have undertaken a variety of challenging projects in the shipping industry and has collaborated with many shipping companies around the world. Our team has in-depth knowledge, years of experience in the field and uses state-of-the-art equipment to guarantee the appropriate level of professionalism in each project.

Our company collaborates with naval companies and field specialists and offers high quality services for shipping companies to comply with the Ballast Water Management Convention (BWM) in all Spanish ports (Valencia, Algeciras, Barcelona, ​​Las Palmas, Bilbao, Santander ...) and southern Europe.

The use of laser scanning in shipbuilding is a technology that helps shipyards deliver projects faster, more efficiently, and with less risk.

We are a company that specializes in quickly and accurately capturing current conditions, using the latest proven technologies in laser scanning and precision lifting, to achieve best practices for boat repair and new construction.

The key to competitive utilization lies in being able to 3D capture the vessel "in operation" quickly, accurately and inexpensively. The early availability of detailed and accurate 3D studies from laser scan data allows shipyards to get ahead in planning the project, designing the refurbishment, and acquiring materials ready to start work as soon as the ship arrives at the repair dock. The use of scanning helps to shorten downtime.
