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

Read more...Western 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.

The Result of Sustained and Successful Cooperation with Marine Technology

Friday, 11 September 2015

Read more...Last week, cargo was shipped to port of Le Trait (a city located in the northern part of France). The vessel carried reels manufactured by the Western Constructions company. The reels are intended for the spooling of special flexible hose-pipe.
We have recently successfully completed several orders in a high quality and timely manner in line with the wishes of our customer. Due to the management of large and complex projects, Technip Flexi France (the end-customer of the product) invariably renews the timetable and expands the work volume by ordering various additional components and parts, therefore, the reels may be additionally stored prior to shipment while new reels are manufactured within the shortest possible time, so that they can be loaded onto the vessel in due time. The complex system of logistics makes it possible for one vessel to carry reels for several different projects, which allows additional savings in transportation costs.

Wednesday, 08 July 2015

Read more...Western Baltija Shipbuilding (WBS) has continued its shipbuilding work for the Norwegian company, OCEA. Currently, a sixth barge has already been completed and set sail. All the barges (there are eight of them in total) are built according the standards, designs and technical parameters approved by the OCEA Company. Their purpose is fish feeding and nutrition in fish breeding farms. The barges are sailed to certain enclosed pools in the sea where the fish being bred swim, are anchored there, and the calculated quantity of fish food required is fed from them to the fish by special pipelines and hoses. According to Mr. Ilja Andrusenko, leading Project Manager of WBS, every project is individually specific. These barges are exceptional because particularly important attention is paid to the internal pipeline through which the fish food is given to the fish.
