Cable Layer New Building Supervision

Cable Layer New Building Supervision

V.Delta has been involved as owner’s technical advisor from the early stage of the design phase, by identifying the Client’s needs and requirements in order to prepare a tentative GA of the new ship.

V.Delta is also supporting the client by shortlisting the most qualified engineering firms to invite to tender for developing The concept design and the basic design for the new cable layer.

The Concept design will include all the engineering activities to verify feasibility of vessel requirements and tentative GA and to keep improving ship stability, hull strength and ship layout.

In a second phase the selected engineering firm will prepare the basic design, a more robust and elaborate design, used for tendering among the shipyards.

During all the design phases V.Delta will support with the plan approval of the drawings and manuals provided by the engineering firm in charge.

Next Step of V.Delta assignment will be assisting during Yard bidding and contract awarding. Finally the specialized On-Site team will supervise the entire construction.
