Abstract:

Each of the 18 candidate Wastewater Management System WMS configurations developed in Volume IV was analyzed for installation aboard the GALLATIN WHEC - 721. The following information was developed vessel conditions including locations of black water sewage and garbage grinder slurry and gray water galley and turbid waste sources, vesselresources capacities and estimated usage rates, determination of viable candidate systems based on installation guidelines and assumptions developed in Volume IV, black and gray wastewater or sludge holding tank capacities which can be fitted, installation cost estimates for each viable candidate system, arrangement drawings for WMS equipment and waste sources, installation related effectiveness attribute data. The analysis was performed in three stages. A preliminiary installation analysis was made on the basis of vessel plans available. This was followed by a shipcheck of the vessel to determine the viable candidate systems and obtain required vessel data. The final step consisted of a more detailed analysis of each viable candidate system to develop installation cost estimates and other required installation related information including arrangement drawings and effectiveness attribute data. Cost estimates were developed using a form which analyzes each viable candidate system in terms of standard installation cost elements, each of which has an assumed unit cost.
