The Boiler Repair Man Cometh…

March 17, 2010

The main phase of the boiler repair got underway this Wednesday. The old plug had been cut out

which showed the general wear and tear more clearly.

Then the chappie started to root-weld the new plug into place which meant weld a little, grind a little,

until a solid base was put down before laying on the main weld.

The next step is to get an ultra-scan NDT done on the welding and if that is ok we then need to do a hydraulic pressure test before firing the old girl up.

We also got the re-built mud door back from the workshop, but the shots I took of it were utter rubbish so I will try and get some next time I’m on-board.
