    Introduction

    CIG Centraalstaal's sister company, CIG Shipkits BV in Groningen, Netherlands, designs and builds top quality blocks and hulls through to complete customized turnkey vessels. The company won a contract to build a new breed of heavy lift vessel. With a deadweight of 4,200 tonnes, the HLV 4400 Indian Dawn is equipped with two cargo cranes weighing 150 tonnes each and has a top speed of nearly 17 knots – very fast compared to other heavy lift vessels.

    The challenge

    In order to provide consistently accurate components and complete building kits to CIG Shipkits BV to build the HLV 4400 Indian Dawn, CIG Centraalstaal needed a reliable steel supply partner.

    The solution

    Through working collaboratively with Tata Steel’s production and supply chain experts, end customer CIG Shipkits was able to successfully produce a faster, longer-range heavy lift vessel, while reducing risk, cost and assembly time.

    The product

    Tata Steel supplied steel plate products with consistent lead time and flexible regular rolling, adding value and reducing risk by optimising fabrication and process routes. 

     

    Tata Steel has a long history of success in servicing demanding shipbuilding markets that require high quality, exceptional service, short lead times and accurate construction. By combining our strengths with those of our key partners in the supply chain, we can deliver the high performance our customers need.

    Challenge

    Challenge

    In order to provide consistently accurate components and complete building kits to CIG Shipkits BV to build the HLV 4400 Indian Dawn, CIG Centraalstaal needed a reliable steel supply partner.

    CIG’s shipyard offers blocks, hull and turn-key ship construction in compliance with European standards, with an emphasis on cost-effectiveness through innovative logistics management. This meant CIG required an established steel provider with:

    • a stable and traceable supply chain
    • full certification to industry standards
    • a long term commitment to collaborative operations in the shipbuilding industry 

    Meeting the highest marine engineering standards

    The HLV 4400 Indian Dawn had to fulfil a number of marine engineering requirements, including:

    • Wheelhouse and crew accommodation on the forecastle deck, allowing the ship to sail with an oversized cargo exceeding her length or height
    • A single box shaped cargo hold for the transport of special cargo and bulky goods, as well as 20 foot and 40 foot containers
    • Two heavy lift cranes capable of lifting 270 tonne loads at once, using a specially manufactured ballast pontoon and anti-heeling system

    Just as crucially, the HLV 4400 Indian Dawn was required to reach more ports than standard heavy lift ships. With a high speed of 17 knots, the vessel also needed a longer range and ability to deliver loads in significantly shorter times than most heavy lift vessels.

    Solution

    Solution

    Underscoring CIG’s total confidence in the productive, long term partnership,Tata Steel’s integrated steelworks supplied 80% of the steel needed to ensure the Indian Dawn project was successful.

    Tata Steel’s reputation is built on consistent supply and wide range of Ship Society Classification accreditations, offering full product traceability in line with industry standards.

    Close collaboration to generate optimum results

    Working closely with CIG enabled Tata Steel to provide the shortest possible lead time, Tata Steel ensured CIG components were made so accurately that processing and assembly time was cut by up to 25%, reducing risk and cost for the customer.

    Indian Dawn’s high speed capability means it will have a larger pre sailing range and be able to deliver loads in shorter times than most other heavy lift vessels.

    Other flexible solutions across multiple projects enabled Tata Steel to help CIG offer ultimate efficiency to its own end-user customers.
