British Naval Architects
With a background in assessing the stability of the Royal Navy surface fleet, Canark Marine specialise in carrying out inclining experiments, analysing stability and producing operator guidance. We are well versed in providing in-service stability consultancy for dockings or modifications to ship equipment.
Flag State Compliance
Canark have developed good working relationships with a number of flag states and excel at ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements. We have worked extensively with classification societies to develop approved solutions that comply with rules or provide equivalence measures where needed.
Canark Marine can provide detailed and accurate weight estimates from initial concept design through to monitoring of as-built weight. Where weight is critical due to draught, trim or stability considerations we can assess methods for weight management and provide solutions to mitigate growth issues.
Design for Production
Canark Marine combines experience gained from the naval, commercial and luxury yacht industries with the most up-to-date marine technologies, to ensure the most suitable and efficient equipment is specified appropriately for each project.
Canark Marine work closely with suppliers and classification societies, to move through the design process whilst ensuring compliance with the relevant codes of practice, equipment capabilities and project requirements. This enables an efficient integration of the systems in to the ship’s structure and outfit.
Canark Marine work successfully with classification societies and foster good relationships with both the plan approval section and the on site surveyors. This helps to ensure that approvals are achieved in the most efficient manner.
Using 2D CAD and 3D CAD software, Canark Marine can produce the structural arrangement and generate production information to include bills of material, manufacturing drawings and cut part information. The cut part information will include part numbers and etched lines to facilitate production.
System Design & Integration
Using a range of methods such as first principle calculations, rules based approach or finite element analysis, Canark Marine have the experience and skills to select the appropriate level of analysis and provide detailed and accurate results.
Trials & Commissioning
Canark Marine specialise in the provision of commissioning and trials services which is considered to be a natural extension of the design process. Specification of technical trials activities and commissioning processes are seen as an essential part of ensuring systems operate as intended.
