Retrofit projects demand careful planning and execution, and typically cover the installation of upgraded wastewater treatment or water generation systems. Retrofits are usually implemented to improve cost efficiency, comply with updated legislation, or as a result of a change in certification requirements – for example, if a vessel will be operating on new routes covering areas such as Alaska or the Baltic Sea, where special requirements apply.
The project phases typically include the following:
- mapping system-related needs and options based on factors such as the available space on board
- planning the optimal system and defining the installation-related requirements
- performing or supervising the installation work, which is typically done by assembling smaller system modules on board the vessel.
Retrofit installations are usually performed while a vessel is in dry dock, but we have also performed installations on operating vessels at sea.
