Governing equipment overhauled for multimillion pound MOD vessel life extension project
27th August – 8th September 2012
We are very happy to be organising our latest training course, tailored to the needs of an international oil company. This will consist of a two day training course at the end of October and will cover usability and product lifecycle management of the governors and controls that make up our customer’s particular governing system.
Test Engineer and Training Coordinator Ivor is particularly looking forward to holding the training course and has been making preparations as necessary.
Applications Engineer Jon Chapman has been working with a UK energy company on an upgrade and retrofit project, which consisted of a complete overhaul of the turbine, and whilst the turbine was in retrofit period, the overhaul of two EG10Ps.
We also overhauled the turbine controls, which were reinstated at the turbine rebuild. Jon attended the customer site to commission the Woodward 505 turbine control. A new auto start up sequence was also commissioned as per the customer request in a bid to improve efficiency.
This fortnight Service Engineer Karl and Service Manager Steve attended a vessel to fit, commission and complete sea trials for a governor overhaul for a ship repair company. Having overhauled the main engine loadsharing governors, basin trials have been completed and Applications Engineer Jon is due to attend the vessel for sea trials next Thursday.
Additionally, we overhauled the governing equipment for a Ministry of Defence vessel within a major multimillion pound 15 year life extension project.
We have recently completed the overhaul of four PGEs for the class 60 locomotive. These took place in the form of fixed price overhauls inclusive of all labour, kits and required spare part replacements.
We have completed an exchange build UG Actuator for UK based Construction Company, Technician James has also been working on an exchange build PGPL for our agent Ian Skins and Technician Chris has been working on the overhaul of a PGA for an offshore marine support vessel.
