Complete Vessel Design
Amongst the ongoing involvement in the cooperative
design, and draughting of all the GRP Tallie Marine Fishing Vessels,
other new builds included the complete design of a 27m Steel Pilot
Boat, for Portnet (NPA), a Aluminium Catamran Fishing Vessel, a 22m
GRP Landing Craft, with bow door, for Pemba, Mozambique, plus a smaller
Steel Landing Craft for Namdeb.
More recent new builds or major conversions included
the new, and 1 of a kind, Moma Barge (Titanium Sand Transporter),
built in Singapore between 2005 and 2007, and the new Smit Lipuma
(Fuel Bunker barge) built by Dormac in Durban in 2007. The Smit Energy
(Bunker Barge) was also double skinned in 2008.
Examples of these and past designs are included under
the applicable menu headings on the left.
Outside of new build designs are an extensive number
of retrofit / refit projects too many to mention. These can span from
Fishing Vessels, to Mining Ships and Oil Rigs.
NORTH STAR - Conversion of a Catamaran to
a Mono Hull
The complete design conversion of the NORTH STAR
was undertaken in 2009, so as to increase it load carrying capacity
and efficientcy as a Launch. This included the hull design, re-engining,
new props, stern gear, rudders etc etc. The fabrication was undertaken
by HESPER ENGINEERING in Cape Town.
