Laser scanning is accurate and thorough, being usable throughout every stage of the retrofitting process, including the initial feasibility assessment, the concept design, and the final detail adjustment phase. Laser scanners boast an accuracy rate of +/- 2 millimeters, enabling engineers to generate extremely precise data and therefore create optimally detailed three-dimensional images of whichever part of the vessel is to be retrofitted. In many cases, laser scans can be performed in a single day, and during smaller operations, such as BWTS (Ballast Water Treatment Systems) or scrubbing water system retrofits, laser scans can often be performed while the crew is still on board the vessel performing their duties, saving a great deal of time.

Laser scanners are also extremely useful during ship inspections as they can be used to quickly and easily prepare 360-degree images and detailed maps of scanning positions, which can then be stored in a vessel's inventory library for use by anyone. In summation, laser scanning is a quick, easy, and extremely accurate tool for both everyday ship management purposes and retrofitting projects.
