More than manufacture

CJR’s in-house capabilities today extend beyond the design and manufacture of precision propulsion systems. Its knowledge and experience in assisting customers through the classification process adds yet another dimension to its offering.

This assertion is supported by CJR’s approval and extensive experience working with all six of the marine industry’s biggest classification societies.

During a recent project with Goodchild Marine, CJR was commissioned to design and manufacture a complete propulsion and sterngear package for an SB LYNX 16-metre passenger catamaran. The vessel was designed to provide fast, efficient, low-draught heavy cargo carrying capabilities, combined with excellent sea-keeping and needed to comply with MCA Small Seagoing Passenger Ships Code.

Through its experience on similar projects, in addition to designing efficient props and sterngear, CJR was able to support Goodchild in obtaining Bureau Veritas classification for the SB LYNX’s propulsion package, as Ian Palmer, project manager for Goodchild explains:

“We know with CJR that the finished product we receive will be high quality and designed using the latest technology and software available. But, what we also appreciate is its commitment to defined processes and documentation, which makes obtaining classification a much simpler process. For this project, being a passenger ferry, classification is even more important and delays cost more than just time, making CJR’s knowledge even more pertinent.

“Throughout the design and build phases, CJR was on hand to offer support regarding classification and we found the team to be very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.”
