T.S.S Ollanta Survey

21st August 2012


The company was commissioned by Orient Express Hotels Limited to survey in concert with interior designers to develop a conversion programme to take the vessel from a cargo vessel to a hotel ship, whilst still retaining the triple expansion steam reciprocating propulsion plant as the original features and ambiance of the vessel. We surveyed the vessel and generated engineering data due to minimal lack of plans and information for the vessel so that the interior designers could develop their proposals. The liaison with the interior designers was not only in terms of space allocation but also in terms of materials that would be acceptable from a fire risk. In addition we were also commissioned to investigate weight and stability issues for the conversion.
