90.000T submersible heavy transport vessel

Vuyk Engineering Rotterdam developed the concept and basic design for a 90,000t DWT submersible Heavy Transport vessel Xin Guang Hua. 

The vessel is built by GSI in China for COSCO Heavy Transport. The hull design is performed by Finite Element Analysis, of the entire hull, to ensure the vessel is capable of transporting extraordinary cargos such as topsides, accommodation barges and drilling rigs.The ballast system has been designed to minimise the ballasting time. Ballast intake is by gravity way and deballasting by means of air pressure pushing. Part of the design scope of work we performed, was the determination of the submerging and refloating procedures and durations.
