Oceanguard BWT Installation: 3D Laser Scan And Space Study

Bulk Carrier – M/V Harriette N

Kyodo USA, the agent of the Headway Oceanguard ballast treatment system, engaged Goltens to perform a laser scan and space study on a bulk carrier, the Harriette N. The owner was interested in the Oceanguard system but had doubts if it would be possible to fit the system in the available space.

It was essential for the cargo operation of the vessel that the full ballast water capacity could be maintained.

Goltens went on board in a Chinese port and performed a laser scan during the port stay while the ship was in normal service. A model of the Headway system was overlaid in a 3D model created from the scan of the engine room.

A video animation of the result provided a powerful aid to Kyodo USA to show their customer how this ballast water treatment installation would fit on their vessel.
