Inclination test – Yeoman Bontrup

Our client specializes in the professional global transport of all sorts of products by bulk carrier. A self-unloading bulk carrier with a 100,000-tonne capacity and an unloading speed of 4,000 tonnes per hour required an inclination test after some modification were undertaken.

The works were executed in the presence of both the client and the Classification Society. Considering the size (deadweight) of the vessel no fixed weights but the vessel’s own ballast tanks were used to initiate the list required for a proper execution of the test.
