Frequently Asked Questions

1. Concept Design

Determination of the project's requirements and scope of possibilities can be widened based on TBV's capabilities. Upon determination of the requirements, a concept design is generated.

Detailing the designs through extensive engineerings. In this step, all technical and visual design requirements are processed in close correspondence with the client, the class and other involved parties.

Upon design approval, TBV launches the project into production. The production planning is an ticipated to the project's overall planning.

Delivery of interface parts as early as possible to the shipyard. Such practice allows for finalization of all works around the system, minimization of installation time on site, integration of as-built dimensions in TBV's design and production processes.

Due to the high degree of innovation in each project, and to ensure optimal functioning and durability, the sub-systems are subject to factory acceptance testing before their release.

For our global projects, installation works on site takinh place under our direct supervision. We work with the contractor on site, or with dedicated companies appointed together with the involved project parties. After installation, we commission the systems and hand it over to the shipyard / project owner.

Either by ourselves, or by local specialized parties appointed together with the client, service and maintenance works are arranged in an effective manner.
