  10. 10. From drawing table... ... to launchingA Wagenborg vessel like the “Lauwersborg” is made out of some tens of thousands of steel parts - a totalweight of steelweight 1800 tons. They are connected by tens of thousands of kilometres of welding. But itall begins with one piece of iron. This article gives you an idea of how the logistics process at Royal NiesternSander BV in Delfzijl works.It all begins in the drawing office. Inch by inch, the ship is designed in a drawing program: bits of steel connected with other bitsof steel, the gigantic dampers in the funnel, and the ceiling partitions in the crews’ cabins: it’s all in the program. At Royal NiesternSander, all the drawings are made 3-dimensional and Wagenborg Shipping is closely involved in the process. The cooperationbetween both companies is even that close that a few years ago Wagenborg decided to acquire an interest in the docks.Always looking for the optimal flow lineEvery space on board the ship is carefully worked out in detail so that everything is known about the layout of each space moreor less by walking through it virtually.(plans and the budget.) KNS often builds in series for Wagenborg, and this means thatany imperfections can easily be erased from the drawings for the following vessels: therefore, ships are built ever better andmore efficiently. The flow lines of the ships are very important because of their influence on speed, fuel consumption, seakeepingperformance (accelerations) and even noise and vibrations.Research is always done to find the optimal flow line and, when it isfound, it is tested on scale models. “This part of the process just keeps you busy for ages,” says Theo Klimp, head of the drawingoffice. “Sometimes, you make a beautiful design that really works well in calm water, but as soon as the first swell appears the shipgrinds to a halt. That’s not what you want, of course.”The ship is designed in the drawing office. Each A computer-controlled robot cuts the 10,000 steel The parts are delivered like a kind of building pac-steelpart is given its own, unique number. parts out of a large variety of steelplates and profile kage to the yard. About 70% of the material for the sizes (12 mm thick steel plate) from 6 up to 60 mm ship is supplied from outside the yard. In total, more thickness than 80 suppliers are involved in the building process.First step: assembling and weldingMost of the steel is ordered at “Centraal Staal” in Groningen where all the pieces are cut to size by a robot and are delivered atthe right moment in the buildingprocess and in the right order. This is called Logistics Support Supply. After the materials have beendelivered, the steel parts (metal) are welded together bit by bit. A tight schedule is needed because every delay causes other delaysand affects the building schedule). Doorduin says: “It’s a major logistics operation.” Every day, you need to adjust that process, asDoorduin knows. For example, six weeks ago, the screw propeller was delivered late, and so was the engine. And if the engine hasnot been fitted in, the superstructure cannot be installed, and so the engine cannot be hoisted down in the engineroom but needs tobe (shoved) skidded into the engine room later on, via the space beneath the superstructure.The 10,000 steel parts are welded The ships bottomsections (hull) and the When a double-walledtogether at the yard into a total of sidesections are made separately in the as- U-formed part (ring42 large sections (segments.) sembly hall.

After that the sides are hoisted up on to the rest of the ships to the bottomsection and welded together. hull.8 ROYAL WAGENBORG
  11. 11. From drawing table...... to launchingThousands of signaturesThe whole logistics process takes place at the Royal Niestern Sander yard. Everything needs to be done in the right order if onlybecause – depending on the size – about ten thousand different steel parts go into one ship. 1800 tons of steel were used for justthe “Lauwersborg” alone. Together with the engine and all the other equipment (parts), the unladen weight rises to above 2000tons. When a section (hullpart) has been finished, it is checked twice. A supervisor from the shipping company and one from theclassification society ( bureau) (which grants the certificates and monitors the ship is built in accordance with the legal rules andregulations (norms) check whether everything has been done according to the drawings and their strict quality standard and thensign them. By the time a ship has been finished, thousands of signatures have been signed. The deckhouse is completely assembled and fitted out sepa- rately from the ship and the navigation- and communicationThe seven major parts of the ship are assembled at equipment is installed in the bridge. Besides a completethe yard: the forward part, the stern, three equally living quarters for the crew, it also contains a galley, an of-spaced (inner) midship parts and the deckhouse. fice, a dining area, washrooms, numerous technical areas and thousands of metres of cables and pipelines for the various systems on board. The complete deckhouse is installed on the ship with the aid of an enormous crane.Thirty thousand fewer man-hoursAlong the way, optimal efficiency is always the goal. On a ship like the “Lauwersborg,” roughly 30,000 fewer hours are workedcompared to fifteen years ago. At that time, a hull was still welded in the open air and was exposed to every kind of weather, withlimited crane capacity. Nowadays we have large workshops with hoistingcapacity up to 200 tons and a lot of equipment is deliveredas a module,which is prefabricated more efficiently in the suppliers’ factory. Jan Doorduin: “We are even studying to subcontractthe small steel panel work as well, so that we can get the sub-panels delivered too,instead of loose steel parts.By doing so the logistic complexity at the yard is reduced drastically.Meanwhile we are extensively investing in new production halls and organisation of the material flow. (If there are sixteen parts on asmall panel, you’ve got sixteen bottlenecks as well. Subcontracting means we can reduce this to just one bottleneck per part.”) When the forward part has been put in place and assembled the vessel is ready to be launched. (In addition to the ship itself,) the vessel contains much more than only its cargo carrying function: Propulsion, Power supply , auxiliary functions such as fresh water generation, airconditioning, heating ,and crew accomodation with related hotel functions. Once at sea ,it is operating completely independent. (there are four other main elements: the engine, the propellor and the installations (the heating and air conditioning systems, etc.).) The blades of the propellor are adjustable. As a result, the propulsion power (effect and the capacity) of the The forward part (the bow-section) of the ship is towed propellor can be changed at a constant revolution on a pontoon by two tugs from one of the the assem- speed of the main engine, resulting in a more optimal bly halls to the slipway at the yard. engine load (and fuel consumption) and allowing the mainengine to generate not only propulsion power but also electricity ROYAL WAGENBORG 9
  12. 12. From the drawing table... From... to launchingThe shower curtain is already thereIt’s not enough to say that it’s just a ship that is being built: a ship is in fact a fully independently functioning living community. RobWildschut, managing director of KNS, says: “They produce their own electricity, their own drinking water, they clear their ownwaste: it’s a complete factory! And the superstructure is the hotel for the crew.” As a matter of fact, the superstructure for the next shipis already waiting on the building site, ready to be fitted. Jan Doorduin: “That one is all finished: the shower curtains are alreadythere...” The ship is ready to be launched. This takes place sideways. The ship is now kept in place on the sleds by a series of hydraulic During the assembly, the ship stands on 2 meter high pillars pumps. When the hydraulic pumps are switched off, the ship starts to fitted with steel wedges on the quayside. Sleds are placed slide towards the quayside. under the ship during the week before the launching and in the The correct balance of weight distribution and distribution of the sleds end the steel wedges are knocked away in specific order, just and after launching tugboats at the bow and stern ensure that the ship before ends up in the water in the proper way.

To minimize the impact of all those vehicles on our environment as much as possible, we have defined two goals: 1. Reduce fuel consumption 2. Minimise harmful emissions Especially for the first goal, we see a lot of synergy between, on the one hand, ROYAL WAGENBORG 15

A special SCR-catalyst – that has been integrated in the exhaust damper - in our new Euro-5 engines makes sure that Ad-blue is injected so that the emission of noxious substances is reduced. This most recent type of engine results in a significant reduction of harmful emissions such as fine particles and nitrogen oxidecutting down on unnecessary fuel costs drivers are actively guided to drive in an and this makes them comply with theand, on the other hand, reducing our economical way. strictest European emission standards.impact on the environment.

  19. 19. At Wagenborg, we do not simply let ourselves be tied down by proven methods and technology. We also participate in research projects and pilots. We are currently investigating the following technological developments: 1. Research for a new technique to treat ballast water (in co-operation with NIOZ) 2. Ship Performance Analyzer: software that analyzes vessel performances and results in significant fuel savings. 3. Participation in a long-term study that uses hydrogen as a fuel. This hydrogen is produced by bioethanol. 4.
