OSK-ShipTech uses 3D scanning to help owners reduce time, risk and error

Scan, convert, sail and save!

Danish naval architects OSK-ShipTech A/S are expanding their competitive edge, introducing 3D laser scanning as a highly effective tool to minimise risk and maximise precision in a market where owners are looking for the fastest and most accurate retrofit and conversion solutions to name a few.

Speed and accuracy is key to owners, when it comes to minimising a ship’s downtime and reducing the margin of error. Naval architects and marine consultants OSK-ShipTech A/S have yet again extended the company’s advanced design toolbox and services with the acquisition of a state-of-the-art 3D laser scanner. With a scanning range of 150 metres and 1 mm accuracy, this offers brand new opportunities in fast ship conversions

“We know that owners are constantly looking to reduce all possible margins; be it risk, time or error. With our 3D laser scanner, we can offer a unique new service, where we are able to scan the inside of a hull for example, while the vessel is still in operation,” says Anders Ørgård, Chief Commercial Officer in OSK-ShipTech A/S.

Ørgård continues: “we’ve already used the scanner in connection with bulb optimisation projects on RoPax-vessels. While in service, we scanned the inside of the hull and several sections of the vessel’s front and then provided the yard with the best possible and most accurate production drawings, drastically reducing the yard’s schedule and the risk of errors. Next up is a 3D-scan of a vessel in China for a Danish ship owner early February, and we are already starting to see the interest from owners, who are recognising the advantages of this technology.”

OSK-ShipTech A/S is also pairing the 3D scanning-technology with virtual reality, which is the next big thing in ship design and ship interiors. “Ever-changing passenger demands pose a significant business challenge to owners and operators. Vessel designs must be flexible and adaptable to suit the trends in travelling and to keep passengers returning,” says Anders Ørgård. “With the scanning and virtual reality technology we can quickly help owners visualise and understand the proposed interiors and layouts when they move around inside the simulated designs. This can be done before the vessel is even put into production or conversions have begun – saving owners millions on costly design mistakes.”
