1 Executive Summary

The Tullamore DEW Visitors Centre is located, in one of the distillery’s original Bonded Warehouse’s, on the banks of the Grand Canal. This was the last place the whiskey would rest before being shipped up the canal for distribution around the world.

But where the casks moved on, the history remained.


The international growth in demand for Irish whiskey has been matched by the building and expansion of the new Tullamore DEW Distillery with substantial investment in the upgrading of DEW Visitors Centre which is an established part of the Irish whiskey tourism trail. A quay in front of the Old Bonded Warehouse has been redeveloped into a new civic plaza and amenity area with pedestrian boardwalk.


The plan is to once again link, a barge and the canal history of Tullamore with the DEW Visitors Centre, by a short trip on a replica tour barge to the nearest lock and back thereby enhancing the overall visitors experience




The barge will run, from the front of the DEW Visitors Centre, east along a straight stretch of canal to Bolan’s Lock (distance 1.4Km), where it will make a short stop. Passengers will disembark to see the Lock, Lock House museum and tea room, while the barge is turned for the return journey back to its starting point.

The barge service will be scheduled to match visitor attendance and coach tours.

OVERVIEW

This vessel is to be used as a passenger ship, operating on the Grand Canal, Dublin. The new vessel has been conceptually designed taking influence from the M-barge design. These barges are 60’x13’ (18.3x3.9m), having a low profile in order to sail under the lowest bridge on the canal.
This preliminary design report outlines the main particulars of the passenger vessel Tullamore, a weight estimation calculation, considerations of passenger crowding allowances on deck, initial stability simulations and a general arrangement drawing.

MAIN PARTICULARS

The main particulars of the vessel are as follows:
Length Over All (LOA) 60.6’ (18.468m)
Breadth Over Hull 12.7’ (3.864m)
Depth Over All 11.95’ (3.645m)
Design Water Line (DWL) 2.95’ (0 .90m)
Compliment
50 Passengers, 4 crew
WEIGHT ESTIMATION

A two- stage weight estimate was carried out. Firstly, by creating a 3D model in Maxsurf Modeller, and calculating the plate thickness and structural scantlings in accordance with Lloyds register ‘Rules for the Classification of Inland Waterways Vessels’ the weight of the bare hull was 15.34 tonnes.
Following this, a detailed estimate was created after including outfitting throughout the ship such as deckhouse outfit, engine room machinery, safety equipment, deck outfit, steering position outfit and propulsion.
Longitudinal, transverse and vertical location of each item were input to yield a weight estimation of 23.9 tonnes.
Weight of steel 15.34 tonnes
Weight of steel and outfit (lightship) 23.9 tonnes
LCG 8.15 m
VCG
1.20 m
PRELIMINARY STABILITY ESTIMATE

Preliminary stability simulations were carried out using the Maxsurf Stability software package. According to the MCA document MSN 1823: The Inland Waters Passenger Ship Code, subsection 10.1 Intact Stability, the requirements for a category A or B vessel, carrying ≤60 passengers and having her number of decks as 0 or 1 is to adhere to a heeling
M D 2 2 8 9 - 0 0 1 - A B r i e f S p e c i f i c a t i o n P a g e | 2 of 4

test so she does not exceed a maximum heel angle of greater than 7 degrees to either Port or Starboard.
Running the basis model showed a significant trim by the stern, to counteract this, 10 tonnes of ballast material (presumably concrete) was added into the lightship condition.
Departure and arrival loadcases were created to simulate the heel and trim when tanks such as fuel, fresh water, stores were 100% and 10% full for each respective case. The waste tank system was defined inversely, being 10% full on departure ad 100% full on arrival

Both the departure and arrival loadcases had to account for passenger crowding and the resulting heeling moments induced by passenger distribution in the saloon and on the top deck. In accordance with the MSN 1823: The Inland Waters Passenger Ship Code 10.2.7 Section C (i), the crowding allowance, for all passengers to one side of the ship is 0.25m2. Allowing 25 passengers in both the saloon and on the open deck, results in a heel to port of 5.7 degrees in the departure and arrival loadcases.

8.2 Beta 75 Hybrid Propulsion Option

8.2.1 Beta 75 Hybrid Engine

The Beta Marine, Hybrid-Marine partnership has delivered a state of the art, robust and reliable hybrid solution for Narrowboats, Wide Beams & Dutch Barges.

Hybrid systems are based on our renowned Greenline range of engines.








Standard Specification
 10kW Twin engine mounted electric motor/generator, control box and control panel.
 12v 65 Amp Engine starter battery alternator.
 Twin 24v 100 Amp Engine domestic battery alternators.
 48v @ 400Ah Battery bank – 4 < 6 10kW Narrowboat electric propulsion hours.
 Battery auto watering and venting system.
 Battery monitor.
 3kW (6kW Peak) charger/inverter.
 Cross charger for single 12v buffer battery – may be bow mounted to provide bow thruster power if required.

Gas Free Boat Specification
 48v @ 800Ah Battery bank upgrade – 8 < 12 10kW Narrowboat electric propulsion hours.
 5kW (10kW Peak) charger/inverter.
8.2.2 Control Box & Control Panels

The electric motor/generator is also connected to a master control box managed by a push button controller complete with display panel.



.





8.2.3 Battery Bank

All Hybrids utilise a 48V battery bank that is essentially a vessels domestic power supply. Using powerful inverter technology, it is possible to run all the electrical domestic appliances you would expect at home and eliminate the need for gas (cooking) on board.
Depending on whether you opt for 400Ah or 800Ah battery bank up to 30kWh of energy can be stored, this would provide 8 to 12 hours of electric propulsion for a Narrowboat or 4 to 6 hours for a Wide beam or Dutch Barge. Or if this energy is retained for domestic use there will be an abundance of power available during sensitive hours with no need to run the engine.
