VTT has planned and carried out a Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) on the ballast system of the sister vessels MV Hawk and Osprey in cooperation with the vessel owners.
Recommended industry practice
The FMEA document complies with standards, guidelines and recommended industry practice.
Team of one engineer and two mariners
The FMEA team consists of an engineer and two mariners with in-depth competence of ballast systems and FMEA processes. Failure scenarios were defined and analysed in order to verify the redundancy of the system with respect to single fault scenarios.
