Abstract:This report is the result of my internship with Van Oord in Singapore. Van Oord is a leading contractor for dredging, marine engineering and offshore projects. The internship consisted of two parts: designing of a spray pontoon and supervising the maintenance of the HAM 310. A spray pontoon is used to discharge dredged material at a particular location in a controlled way. The main tasks for designing the spray pontoon were to set requirements, consider what could be better in comparison with old spray pontoons, design the pontoon and select the right parts. The HAM 310 is a 168m long trailing suction hopper dredger which was built in the Netherlands more than 30 years ago. Therefore the vessel had to be maintained to satisfy the requirements that have to be met to operate the vessel. During the maintenance of the HAM 310, the main tasks were to track the progress, regulate the logistics, check the invoices and supervise the repairs of subcontractors.
