Green’s Provides Emergency Response to Irish Ferries Ship
Green’s has recently re-tubed a Sunrod oil-fired boiler on board Irish Ferries’ MV Oscar Wilde ship.
Through its regular audit programme, Irish Ferries’ agents Matrix Ship Management had identified that some boiler re-tubing was required and commissioned Green’s specialist team to carry out the repairs during the vessel’s dry docking at Cammell Laird shipyard.
While undertaking this work, Green’s discovered that there was further boiler damage that required repairing which meant that additional pressure parts had to be supplied urgently. They were fabricated and tested at Green’s factory before being delivered to the vessel within 2 weeks.
Installation of all parts and testing of boiler was completed whilst the Oscar Wilde was sailing between Ireland and France. Two 6-man boiler repair teams sailed with the vessel, working 24/7. Green’s manufactured and supplied the LRS certified components as well as all non-destructive testing of repairs.
Matrix ship manager Filip Lefever says: “While Green’s quotation was not the cheapest we received, it was very detailed and unlike some companies we have dealt with, there were no hidden costs afterwards.
“This job was not without its challenges, but Green’s handled them professionally and we will be looking to benefit from their expertise and their flexibility again in the future.”
