Delivery

  • Engineering and detail design for the replacement of 2 aft quarter deck cranes and 1 midship crane.

    Delivery:

    • AMS surveyed the area on the vessel, developed a study drawing to confirm the proposed equipment would fit abord the vessel.
    • A destruct drawing was developed to identify interference structure(s) to be removed.
    • For the aft quarter deck cranes, General arrangement, detail and Installation drawings as well as plate nesting drawings for the crane foundations.
    • For the midship crane, it was not possible to cut and weld to the deck due to heat transfer to the spaces below the deck. Therefore, AMS developed an adaptor structure to allow for connection of the new crane to the existing foundation.
