Building Supervision is C-Job Naval Architects’ direct, hands-on support of the ship construction or refit process. Encompassing Site Management and Superintendence projects, it is a discipline that connects the company’s extensive theoretical knowledge with practical experience of people like Project Manager Hans Stoit. “It’s my role as site manager to unburden the client by taking care of all the issues that need to be taken care of.”
For a number of years now, C-Job has believed that ammonia could be a viable option as a clean and sustainable marine fuel. The company’s investigations into the subject took an important step forward last month with the publishing of new research by Niels de Vries, one of C-Job’s Lead Architects.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a computer simulation technique of solving complex structural engineering problems. For a naval architectural company like C-Job, FEA allows precise calculation of stresses, fatigue and vibrations without having to build a prototype. This precision enables more informed and more effective decision making in the early stages of ship design to create more efficient vessels.
Ship-owners considering an investment in wind-assisted propulsion are faced with numerous questions. C-Job’s own long-term research, supplemented by additional graduate studies, means that they are the go-to partner for ship-owners looking for independent advice.
C-Job’s new Buckling Tool allows ship structures to be optimised at the earliest stages of Concept Design. It also gives a better understanding of plated structures in Basic and Detail Design. Lead Naval Architect Nikos Papapanagiotou explains how.
C-Job has launched its global sulphur cap Compliance Tool. For ship owners operating in any maritime sector, the tool is an easy-to-use and free way to find out the most effective method of complying with the International Maritime Organization’s global sulphur cap that will come into effect on 1 January 2020.
