Fleet in service – exploit its potential, control costs: Extension of ship’s hull

More stowage space with new hull segment

On a few ships of the current fleet exist the possibility to extend the hull, to increase the capacity and efficiency of the ships operation. With such an extension load capacity, carrying capacity and contractually project loading increases – whereby transport costs per shipping unit decreases. Speed of the vessel is practically not influenced by this capacity extension.

To do this the ship’s hull will be separated midships and extended with a new longitudinal segment. This is a very common conversion process and offers the advantage that the new ships segment can be completely prepared before the vessel arrives at the shipyard.

The extension of the "Tor Ficaria" at MWB shipyard in Bremerhaven lasted a few weeks

By this the time for docking can be shortened as much as possible. In order to establish whether such an extension is practicable and make sense, the execution of a pilot study is advised. As a basic parameter for the fleet in service the smooth water bending moment (SWBM) should be considered. The calculation of the structural strengthening, load line, tonnage, position of the collision bulkhead as well as intact and leakage stability belongs to the analysis preparation. 

The equipment of anchor, anchor winches, anchoring element and rudder systems should also be checked. The loadability of the ship’s hull can be, in case of necessity, determined by finite element method. For all the preparation e.g. analysis, construction of the new segment, a lead time of around 6 months can be calculated. The extension of the hull is mainly suitable for younger vessel, which can benefit from the extended load capacity.

Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any suggestions? Cheers!
