Design and Engineering Services
Having completed just over 3300 projects (of various
types, forms and sizes) in the last 24 years alone, with another 500
before that, under the DSA name, hence Triton would be best described
as being extremely active.
These projects include “new vessel” designs, repair
solutions, major refits, salvage calculations, preparation of drawings,
to stability calculations, propeller and propulsion solutions, and
structural analysis, covering all commercial vessels from passenger
yachts to oil rigs, from fishing vessels to diamond mining ships,
from patrol craft and military vessels to barges and dredges.
Generation of general arrangement drawings, linesplans
and safety plans are an everyday activity on our cad stations, as
they are prerequisites for local registration.
With the experience of seasoned structural draughtsmen,
and supported by finite element analysis, we pride ourselves in offering
almost any design solution for marine applications, for approval by
all of the primary classification societies around the world. Amongst
such structures would include helicopter decks for mining vessels,
mining plants and underdeck stiffening on mining ships, sponsoning
of both mining and fishing vessels, shelterdecks for fishing vessels,
winch foundations, Aframes, Gantries and Cranes, the lengthening of
ships, and even the structure of the Nelson Mandela Gateway floating
jetty (ex Berties Landing).
With the support of using GHS
stability software (for the past 26 years), amongst other ship stability
software, we also pride ourselves in being able to simulate almost
any salvage situation, including inverted vessels floating on trapped
air, grounding reaction calculations, longitudinal strength calculations,
whilst damaged and grounded, multiple fluid types within tanks, including
trapped air etc. A ship, intact or damaged, being exposed to following
or oblique waves etc.
See the SALVAGE
Section for more detail in the simulation of Salvage Scenarios.
