Our team sees increase in proactive marine boiler and burner inspections

Over recent months our marine services team has been asked to undertake significantly more inspections of marine boilers and burners. Industrial and Boiler Services Manager Neil Ford believes this is a result of vessel managers increasingly focusing on ensuring optimum efficiency and proactively identifying potential issues so that repairs can be planned at a time and location that minimises disruption to vessels’ operations.

Companies commissioning Green’s team so far this year include Ahrenkiel Steamship, Scorpio Marine, Reederei Koepping, Sloman Neptun and Reederei Rass.

2019 has also seen Green’s undertaking:

  • Pre-docking inspection and IRIS (internal rotary inspection system) test of both MHI boilers in Singapore on ‘Golar Viking’ for Golar LNG.
  • Burner and boiler repairs on the ‘Gotland Sofia’ in Rotterdam
  • Full inspection of the main condenser on FPSO NGOMA offshore in Angola in order to agree a plan to carry out major works in the coming months
  • Provision of 141 hand-hole doors, for MHI water tube boilers on FPSO offshore Brazil.

As part of the Heat Exchange Group, Green’s can now provide a wider range of services. This includes inspections, repairs and spares for all models of plate and shell & tube heat exchangers and in-house manufacture of gaskets for plate heat exchangers at its UK
