SPACE TO PROCESS.
Seattle-based Phoenix Processors Limited Partnership (PPLP) engaged Glosten to help extend the life of the M/V Excellence, a 367-foot ABS-classed trawler-turned-factory-processor outfitted to weather the harsh conditions of the Bering Sea in winter. In addition to crucial upgrades that would keep the Excellence running and ensure regulatory compliance, this complex, multi-stakeholder project involved maximizing the ship’s square footage to expand its factory space and integrating new structural components and equipment.
Glosten was responsible for all the design, engineering, and stability work that entailed. Our production engineering group developed a 3D model of the new structure added to the vessel, allowing for the automated cutting of parts and prefabrication to reduce the construction schedule for minimal vessel downtime.
