Conversion of MS Vesterålen

MS Vesterålen is an old Lady of 37 years, build in 1983 most input data was hand drawn, revised over the years by different yards. Often the onboard situation is different than what the drawings show, in those cases onboard verification is necessary. No Problem! From visits onboard taking measurements and laser scans where necessary to crew members taking pictures on request – team work makes it possible. Tight time plans and short docking times require perfect preparation. MS Vesterålen was converted in many areas, systems were upgraded, rudders changed, main engines replaced, but the most challenging item here was the complete renewal of the piping through the casing. Space and access challenges were solved by 3D coordination between all members involved.
