update..FPSO Ruby Inclining Test

This blog has been abandoned for so long

The main moderator for this blog has leave THE COMPANY few months back

There are many stories to tell but too little time for writing and posting it to this blog

I’ll try my best to update this blog since is a medium for HUllCon’ian’ to interact with each other especially for those who already leave us yang still with THE COMPANY

(besides than Facebooklah kan hehe)

Thus, patient to all…stories will slowly update ok?

FPSO Ruby II Inclining Test

The main purpose for Inclining Test is to get the weight, LCG, TCG and VCG of the ship before she sailed away. It is also required in the following cases:-

~ Any new ship, after its completion,

~ Any ship, if deemed necessary by the Society, where any alterations are made so as to materially affect the stability. (Source from Veristar)

Our Inclining Test started on July 13, 2009 (gile lame baru nak update hihu) at 1800. We started late in the evening to avoid disturbance for all contractors to do their job during working hour.

Design team together with PMTs, Maritime and subcontractors were overnight on the ship until 0730. For this Inclining Test we were using water ballast hence it takes hours to complete depending the pump capacity and speed. After ballasting, we need to do sounding in order to check the water level. These tasks was challenging, not to mentioned tiring since you need to carefully ballast the correct amount of water.


LCG – Longitudinal Center Gravity

- Distance from Aft Perpendicular (AP) of ship to frame

VCG – Vertical Center Gravity

- Distance from Baseline (BL) of ship to deck level

TCG – Traverse Center Gravity

- Distance from Centerline (CL) of ship to Starboard side (SB) or Portside (P)

PMT – Project Management Team or Operation Team

Enjoy the pixel!
