Harbours and Docks

Solutions for Engineering - Harbours and Docks
Engineering projects involving ship building, as well as works on docks and harbours use solutions from Leica Geosystems.
3D ship block positioning with Leica Industrial Theodolites
This application report describes how the DAC-TC system is used to establish a 3D Building Frame System at the site and how this frame system is used when assembling the block structure. An example of such a structure is the double bottom of an “ecobox” type of carrier. more
High-tech hull blocks made possible by Leica Industrial Theodolites
Modern shipbuilders have widely adopted the concept of modular construction and are realising the benefits associated with these methods. Further improvements in productivity can be achieved if these modules are accurately built, avoiding the traditional excess material normally trimmed during the erection process. more
Unsurpassed precision and expedience in shipbuilding made possible with use of Theodolites
“Chantiers de l'Atlantique” has started to use Leica 3D measuring systems in 1995. Due to the good performance of the Leica products they have increased the number of measuring systems considerably. All the users at the “Chantiers de l'Atlantique” highlight the savings the Leica systems have allowed them to make in terms of time and money. With the purchase of twoTDA 5000 systems (chosen because of the ATR) and associated software, they expect further productivity improvements in overlength management, which is a crucial problem for all shipyards and the main key to cut production costs. They are convinced that this tool fully meets their requirements. more
Leica Theodolites for dimensional control and analysis in shipbuilding
Thyssen Nordseewerke GmbH, located in Emden on the North Sea coast, has a long tradition dating back to 1903, when the shipyard was founded as the “Nordseewerke Emder Werft und Dock Aktiengesellschaft”... more
