Our hydraulics team we asked to refurbish the existing pipework on the Lough Foyle Dredger. Everyone knows about the effect of corrosion on a ship’s hull, but few people consider the effect of corrosion on piping. Pipes pose a hidden danger, a danger that is often neglected. As a ship ages, so does the piping system.
Maintenance is not always easy, as pipes, unlike the hull, are difficult to examine because of their number and inaccessibility. In this projecttwo of our engineers spent over a week on board the the Lough Foyle dredger refitting all of the steel pipes.
The ship owners proactive approach avoided catastrophic loss that can result from pipe failure. Reduce downtime and increase efficiency with support from our hydraulic engineering team.
