Platform Strength is engineered for Purpose

The value of standardized platform design is that by simply increasing the standard modules plate thickness, and either increasing or reducing bulkheads, frames and stringer spacing intervals, the Modules can be engineered infinitely to suit the client requirements with regard to the following:

  • Shallow Draft with high manoeuvrability 
  • Propulsion - Modules cater for Inboard and Outboard Options including Jets, Sterndrives and hydraulic drive options,
  • Portability – Platforms can be disassembled at site and moved in a standard GP Container,
  • Reduced Delivery, and Duties costs to clients, and local construction possible when supplied as a Modular flat pack vessel,
  • Delivery Freight and Rigging Costs, which are approximately 60% less when compared to a fixed Hull platform,
  • Local Assembly – Manufacture and Commissioning allows for Import Tariff reductions as a Knockdown platform,
  • Site Assembly time and costs are reduced – 4 days from arrival to launch,
  • Fuel Efficient and Payload Capable.

The assembled MODCAT or MOD-BARGE Platform provides an extremely stable platform fully capable of delivering excellent operational payload capacities and range.

 

Payload and Volume carrying Capacity

Payload (SWL)

MODCATS                                               From 3 tons - 25 tons 

MOD-BARGES                                         From 10 tons - > 60 tons

 

Superstructure and Fit-out Options

The clients Superstructure requirements, when considering the available deck space, provided by the design, are fully catered for in either existing design as a sister-ship, alternatively, Choose from existing Superstructure concept design’s, Internal GA‘s and a comprehensive list of OEM deck equipment and fittings, or have their platform anointed to suit their specific operational requirements.

 

This makes the MODCAT & MOD-BARGE platforms ideal for the following applications:

  • Aquaculture Operations
  • Hospitality and Accommodation Platforms
  • Passenger Transport Vessels
  • Freight Platforms
  • Pump Stations
  • Floating Mobile Medical Facilities
  • Mobile Marine Clinic’s
  • Game Viewing Cruisers
  • Salvage and Supply Platforms
  • Environmental Work vessels
  • Paramilitary and Patrol Operations
  • Mobile Marine Refuelling Bowser
