Naval architecture is an engineering discipline dealing with the design, construction, maintenance and operation of marines and structures. Naval architecture involves basic and applied research, design, development, design evaluation and calculations during all stages of the life of a marine vehicle. Preliminary design of the, its detailed design, construction, trials, operation and maintenance, launching and dry-docking are the main activities involved. Ship design calculations are also required for ships being modified (by means of conversion, rebuilding, modernization). Naval architecture also involves formulation of safety regulations and damage control rules and the approval and certification of ship designs to meet statutory and non-statutory requirements. The main elements of naval architecture are:
Ana is a Normally Unmanned Wellhead Platform with 4 × Platform wells, pipework fully rated to well closed-in tubing head pressure, cold vent, helideck, chemical storage and injection pumps for MEG, temporary refuge, lifeboat, facilities to enable temporary installation of pig receivers and pig launchers, minimal other facilities.Details

BLUE LINE has the ability to convert the owner’s dream into reality. At the early stages of the design our team determines the parameters that will form the basis for optimum ship dimensions, hull form development as well as propulsion system selection and auxiliary systems, according to the customer’s requirements.
The multipurpose oil recovery ship was launched on the 4th of December 2020 at Celiktrans Shipyard.Video
A new fabrication step to complete the fabrication: 185.15 t and measuring 51.5 m wide and 21.8 m length, successful lift installations of heavy offshore structures required comprehensive and detailed studies involving many engineering and geometrical constraints including geometric configuration of the structure, its weight and center of gravity, member strength, rigging details, lifting cranes and floating lifting crane an also other construction constraints like maximum ground pressure. These constraints needed to be resolved efficiently in order to arrive a cost – effective solution.Video
On the 3rd of August 2020 was scheduled the first major lifting for Ana Platform Project build in GSP Shipyard.
The lifting of approximately 127 tons Cellar Deck was performed in accordance with the documentation prepared by Blue Line engineers.
Advanced analysis with the finite element method using FEMAP NASTRAN SOFTWARE was performed to verify the stress and displacement that occurred in deck structure and lifting pad eyed in order to minimize the impact of lifting on local structure.
It was also prepared the set of two cranes LR1300 and LR1280 involved in lifting, using Liebherr Crane planer, the selection of lifting slings, and the design of pad eyes.
The lifting was performed in good conditions and the Cellar Deck was positioned on topside grillage as it was planned.Photo 1 Photo 2 Photo 3 Photo 4
On July 2020 Blue Line has completed the design and workshop drawings in order to replace the old and affected sliding platform used for docking and undocking ships in Mangalia Shipyard.Photo 1 Photo 2
On the 7th of May 2020, it started a close partnership between our company, Blue Line Ltd, Suszi, and Tehnorex International in order to achieve a public procurement contract for two self-propelled river dredgers with one cargo hold for dredged material.
On February 2020 the team was completed with four engineers who have finished the Basic Offshore Safety Induction & Emergency Training at CERONAV Institution of Constanta.
On October 2019 it started a close partnership between our company, Blue Line Ltd., GSP and BSOG in order to achieve the MGD Project. Blue Line provides the workshop documentation for ANA Platform –a new unmanned production platform.
Our company participated at Exposhipping Expomaritt Istanbul 15th International Maritime Exhibition between 01 – 04 April 2019 at the invitation of Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Turkey, in order to establish a long and mutually advantageous partnerships.
On March 2019 it started a close partnership between our company, Blue Line Ltd., Çeliktrans Shipyard and S .C. Tehnorex International S.A in order to achieve the multipurpose oil recovery ship project (a vessel with a length of ~ 40 m, provided with equipment that ensure fasts interventions both at the surface of the water- for saving and depollution activities, and in depth- for diving and depollution activities), having as a beneficiary the Romanian Agency for the Salvation of Human Life at Sea (ARSVOM).
On February 2019 it started a close partnership between our company, Blue Line Ltd., and ATG Giurgiu in order to achieve the multipurpose oil recovery ship project (a multipurpose vessel with a length of ~25 m, for port activities required for a modern port), having as a beneficiary the National Company Constanta Maritime Ports Administration (CN APM).
