RV Thuwal – Project Management of a Major Vessel Refit

Posted in Recent Projects by Admin 0

The refit of the Research Vessel Thuwal at the Lusben Shipyard in Viareggio continues to progress well with the electrical upgrade now completed.  Congratulations to Guy Oliver, Nick Mrdjen and Grant Gosschalk at Olectric, as well as MSA’s Project Manager,  Isabelle Bazile for reaching this very important milestone!

Maritime Survey Australia was engaged by the vessel’s owner, KAUST to act as a project manager to oversee a major refit of the vessel involving wiring upgrades, installation of new navigational equipment, a new galley, a scientific survey room, and an upgrade of the hydraulics, heating, ventilation and cooling systems.

MSA has several vessels currently under construction or under refit in various locations in Australia and around the world. Not all of them can be mentioned for confidentiality reasons, however some examples of current projects can be found at our New Build and Refit Project Management Services Page.

All our surveyors are accredited with the International Institute of Marine Surveying, RINA, AIMS, and IMarEST. We will remain impartial in all of our business dealings, and we will never conduct business in a manner which could place our business integrity or impartiality at risk or question.
