Helping Keep The Royal Navy Afloat

The situation was assessed and a plan of action was put into place. A 500kW Boiler would be placed on-board and pipework attached straight into the ships system.

The Boiler now in place and set up ready for commissioning when another request was made, the Captain needed to turn his ship about in order to commence other work that was to take place on the vessel.

A plate pack was placed on the prow of the ship and due to the weight of the flexible pipes dropping over the side to the boiler ropes were run alongside them and cleated into place to help take up the weight.
