Operated by the TUI holiday company, at 55,000 gross tonnage and measuring 244m in length with 12 decks, and able to hold up to 1,500 passengers and 600 crew members, this is one of the larger vessels for which we have been briefed to provide a complete ship wide tank gauging system.
MV THOMSON DREAM
After being commissioned to carry out a survey by the shipyard, our engineering team produced a detailed report with recommendations for a tank gauging system, including tank temperature measurement, that met both the shipyard’s budget and their timescales.
Our recommendation was to overhaul the current installation, fitting a hybrid solution of ICT level transmitters and Series 260 transmitters which were connected to a TankView system and were selected to best suit the application. At the same time we also proposed using the existing wiring, meaning that substantial cost savings could be made in installation.
We manufactured the parts within a short lead time in order to meet the timings of the shipping yard and worked within their already scheduled dry-dock booking for the ship in Navantia Shipyard, Spain. The parts were installed by the shipyard engineers, with our commissioning team checking and calibrating the system after installation, ensuring all parties were delighted with the outcome and result.
