As a maritime consulting firm with 35 years of experience and a global network of 17 offices, we understand the importance of quality ship design work for ship owners. The basic design of a ship has a major impact on its performance, reliability, and overall value. A poor quality basic design can lead to problems during construction and operation, which can be costly and time-consuming to fix.
Here are a few reasons why ship owners should prioritize quality basic design work:
Meeting specific requirements and objectives: Quality basic design ensures that the vessel is built to meet the ship owner’s specific needs and goals, including payload, operating environment, and performance and operational requirements.
Minimizing construction risks and delays: Quality basic design reduces the risk of issues or delays during construction by identifying and addressing/eliminating potential problems early on. This helps ensure smooth, on-schedule construction, avoiding costly rework or delays.
Maximizing value and performance: Quality basic design maximizes the value and performance of the vessel, making it more efficient, reliable, and able to meet the needs of the ship owner and crew.
Ensuring regulatory compliance: Quality basic design ensures that the vessel is designed and built in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements, such as safety standards, environmental regulations, and technical standards. This helps avoid delays or fines or rework due to noncompliance.
In conclusion, quality basic design is crucial for ship owners as it helps ensure that the vessel meets their requirements and objectives, minimizes construction risks and delays, maximizes value and performance, and ensures regulatory compliance.
