Support design ferry


Barco Construct




Multi was asked to support Barco Construct with the design of the ferry that operates on the Schelde in Schellebelle (BE).

The yard did the maintenance of the old vessel and although they had no experience with vessel design, they were asked to make a new one.

After a period they concluded they needed assistance of a Naval architect and they requested assistance from

Multi improved the construction of the vessel based on the old vessel and assisted the yard with the class approval.

The integration of the engine foundation was investigated to avoid vibrations (as was the case with the engine in the old vessel).

The stability was checked despite the lack of rules for these kind of vessels.
