International Shipbuilding Inspections
QCS is specialised in the inspection and supervision of bodies for inland, small sea and fishing navigation. During every end inspection various measurements will be carried out, including measuring the length, breadth and depth of the body. Material thickness will be measured and compared with values on the construction drawings.
After the painting of the body QCS will again look very care fully at the tightness of the body, because only then you can really see how tight the body actually is. At the same time the painting works will be checked. The micron thickness will be measured and compared with the values in the painting scheme.
QCS carries out a lot of different measurements. Like checking the right position of the centre point of the nozzle and the screwshaft and the correct joining of the tunnel. Also the distance and the position of the rudderpipes will be measured. Further all measurements necessary for a good end result will be carried out.
For and Afterpeak and enginerooms including Enginefoundation will be checked.
During the construction of the body QCS will check if all welding seams are according shipbuilding quality and they will, where necessary, be grinded. When the welding is finished, the welding seams and all possible damages will be covered with the stripcoating mentioned in the painting scheme. Of all inspection the surveyor of QCS will make well organised reports. All delivered equipment intended for concerning body, will be checked by QCS, to make sure that they have been placed correctly by the shipyard.
The double bottom and the ballast areas are fully inspected. The double bottom has to be clean before it will be closed. The slotweldings and welding seams of these areas will be carefully tested and checked on their tightness. The pressure tests of these spaces are taken care of by the concerning Shipyard in the presence of the Classification Agency.
