"Magnar" and "C3 Rubicon" conversion
Makar Navis Ltd. contracted OSD-IMT for the naval architecture, structural and system engineering for the conversion of two existing vessels into cement carriers, now the "C3 Magnar" and the "C3 Rubicon". The hold structure was converted to carry cement of different specific gravity. The cargo hatches were permanently closed and compressor rooms were engineered to fit on top of the hatches. The vacuum loading and unloading system, as delivered by CargoFlexx, was integrated into the hold structure and pipe schematics, -routing and -fixtures were engineered. All to the satisfaction of the owners and Croation Registry of Shipping as well as the classification society.
