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.
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.
Assessments as-is can be achieved down to millimeter precision with the use of laser scanning. Data can be transferred to your CAD systems so that new components fit in a virtual environment, connection points can be evaluated, collision checks are performed, logistics and transportation of new parts are verified to check that they fit into his new position.
set can be used for the retrofit of ballast water and exhaust gas treatment systems on ships, for variance analysis of new plants in which unexpected errors occur, quality checks, the update of outdated drawings and maintenance documentation, the creation of 3D-models of existing plants, etc.
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.
We collaborate 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.
