GLO Marine’s Top 3 Projects of 2020


The GLO team did a great job last year, although working remotely, and delivered quality design & engineering on a considerable number of challenging projects.

We asked our colleagues to select their favorite top 3, and here they are:

1.  Platform Supply VesselConversion & BWTS installation

One of our clients, a fleet operator in the Middle East, asked us to perform a Conversion and Ballast Water Treatment System Installation on a Peridot Platform Supply Vessel.

The comprehensive scope of work consisted of mobilization of temporary accommodation units for 40 additional crew, installation of BWTS from AlfaLaval, conversion of dry bulk tank to sewage tank and seafastening of removable towing equipment.

GLO Marine was responsible for complete engineering from basic to workshop documentation and act as owner representative in technical discussions with DNV.

2. Oil Spill Recovery Vessel – Concept Design



The design for this 22-meters Oil Spill Recovery Vessel is focused on functionality, and comes together at the intersection between maximised skimmer capacity and optimised deck space.

Two important design objectives were high speed and maneuverability and plenty of deck space. During an intense 2 weeks discovery and feasibility process, together with our client, our team went through 3 iteration phases and managed to produce a concept that is 100% fit for client’s purpose and budget.

  • 50 m3/h – oil skimmer capacity
  • 25 knots – service speed
  • lightship – estimated at 20 tones
  • deck load of 2 tons / m2

3. Expedition Cruise Vessel – Basic Design



The third project we’re presenting in our Top Projects of 2020 Series is the VEGA Expedition Cruise Vessel we worked on alongside Helsinki Shipyard.

Strengthened for sailing in harsh environments (Polar Code Strengthening), at 113 m length and 75 passenger cabins, it is the perfect cruise ship for sailing both in the Arctic and Antarctic waters as well as in the tropical waters during the spring and fall seasons.

GLO Marine was responsible with issuing the Class drawings, integration of basic structural calculations and project management services.
