The company has entered into an agreement for the work of modernizing five ships, which is to be performed in cooperation with the Amsterdam-based Spliethoff Group. Each of the ships is going to be equipped with exhaust gas cleaning scrubbers, the purpose of which is to reduce the emission of sulphuric compounds into the environment, since more and more attention is being paid to protecting nature and reducing pollution in all areas of human activities, including shipping.
This type of project is new to Western Shiprepair as no ships in Lithuanian Shipyards have so far been equipping with exhaust gas cleaning scrubbers. The process will involve several Western Shipyard Group companies. Western Baltija Shipbuilding is constructing an additional funnel for placing the exhaust gas scrubbers. Vakarų Vamzdynų Sistemos is laying the gas pipelines and will fully assemble the equipment and place it in the funnel. BLRT Era Klaipėda branch office will take care of installing the relevant electrical systems.

Seventh barge transferred to the Norwegian company OCEA

Tuesday, 15 September 2015

Barza Ocea septintaWestern Baltija Shipbuilding has continued to perform shipbuilding work for the Norwegian company, OCEA. At present, the seventh barge has already been completed and set afloat. All the barges are built in accordance with the standards, designs and technical parameters approved by OCEA. The barges are used for feeding fish at fish farms. The seventh barge is 30 meters long and 10 meters wide. On the left side of the barge, two platforms were built for dispensing the feed to the fish. The lowest part of the barge, i.e. from the bottom up to the main deck, houses a machine unit with two diesel generators, four compressors, a transformer and the main panel. The other four premises accommodate all the feed dispensing equipment. It is a very accurate and complex system, consisting of thin-walled pipes made of stainless steel, interconnected by special connectors. The pipes must be very precisely bent at the proper angle to prevent any damage to the travelling feed granules. According to the customer’s wishes, eight main holds for fodder, five additional fish processing tanks, fuel and drinking water tanks were installed. The living quarters, with cabins, working and resting places for the personnel were built on the main deck.
