New vessel design is probably the service we are most known for; however this is only one aspect of our business. Vessel owners often need to respond to market demands by upgrading and modifying their vessels. A large component of our work relates to modifying and converting existing vessels; including structural design; reviewing stability and powering requirements; and retrofitting of new equipment. Whether it is a minor or major modification, NMS’ naval architects are well qualified for the task. Talking to Naval Architecture and Marine Solutions (NMS) before making alterations or modifications can ensure that you receive the correct advice before making such an investment and can also ensure that your vessel remains safe, operable and meets your expectations. One of the most critical aspects of any modification is the impact on vessel stability. Modifying a vessel or its equipment can affect the stability in a number of ways, not all of them immediately apparent. Vessel lengthening is one of the larger scale modifications that we regularly become involved with. If you are looking at lengthening a vessel, we can assist you by providing a range of options to allow the cost versus benefit analysis to be made. Our collective operations experience allows us to develop cost-effective and timely solutions that respond to our clients’ needs. Throughout the modification process, NMS can work closely with the owner and boatyard / shipyard in order to ensure you receive a quality product. We also liaise and manage the requisite approval or regulatory authority submission to Department of Transport, Department of Mines and Petroleum, or any other statutory agency.
