3D Scanning for Ballast water treatment systems feasibility study

Canada, October 2019 - Detailed scanning of selected areas on a Bulk Carrier vessel for documentation purposes. Scan data will be utilized for the feasibility study of a ballast water treatment system. The 3D information was collected with the usage of Leica BLK 360 Laser Scanner. After point cloud processing, the following data were delivered: a) Point clouds of the scanned areas – Engine, Outer areas, Ballast control room) in .rcp file format b) JetStreamViewerSetup.exe, a free viewer that can import and display point cloud and panorama images of the scanning setups of the aforementioned 3 areas c) Technical Report.

Our team has used Leica RTC360, 3D laser scanner in order to capture and reconstruct via solid and other geometric primitives, a packaging unit at NESTLE Hellas premises. In a time period of 1 working day the unit was measured and uploaded to the specialized modeling and point cloud processing software for the final production of the detailed 3D Model and Drawings. 

Scan to BIM project

Our team was contracted to realize a series of 3D scanning measurements on a Steam Boiler Room in PMI – PAPASTRATOS Greece premises. The main purpose was the creation of a 3D model, with geometric and attribute data of the components. This process is known as Scan to BIM. Data can be further utilized for maintenance purposes, revamp process preparation and design of new production facility systems, run operation simulations and many others.

Straightness inspection - Shaft

Moschato, January 2019 - Straightness inspection on left shaft of a luxurious yacht using Easy Laser technology. Easy and accurate measurements were performed with Easy laser Line bore E 950 by METRICA team.

Yacht geometrical inspection – deformation monitoring

December 2018 - Purpose of measurements was the geometrical inspection of yacht’s deformations during docking process. Our team provided guidance to bring the ship hull as close as possible to afloat conditions (after the end of docking actions). Measurements were held on afloat and during dry dock actions on stable positioned retro - reflective targets with the use of Leica TDRA6000 (industrial total station). For data processing, our engineers used Spatial Analyzer Hexagon Metrology Processing Software. Would you like to know more about similar projects? You can contact us! info(@)

Turkey, October 2018 – Measurements for geometry inspection of the rudder installation of a bulk carrier with the usage of Easy Laser alignment system (Easy laser Line bore E 950). Main purpose: identify the cause of recurring failures. 

3d laser scanning - hull scanning - yacht

Perama, July 2018 - Detailed 3D scanning of the external hull surface of a motor yacht. The application was fulfilled via the usage of terrestrial laser scanner Leica ScanStation P40 and industrial total station Leica TDRA 6000. By using the dense point clouds, all as-built sections of the yacht were created. Sections (CAD format) were the final deliverables to the relevant workshops. The yacht was scanned on Nausi Shipyard premises, Perama, Greece.

Our team used Leica ScanStation P40 for high accuracy and efficient performance. By using the dense point clouds, all as-built sections of the yacht were created. Sections (CAD format) were the final deliverables to the relevant workshops.



Engine room 3D Scanning

May 2018 - Travelling worldwide, from China to Baltimore, U.S., our team fulfilled more than twenty 3D scanning surveys of engine rooms and related ship areas since January 2018. The increasing demand for ballast water treatment systems in containers, ships, dry bulk carriers, tankers, and general cargos has led to an amazing increase in 3D scanning surveys comparing to 2017.
