Working on one of the big boys

Feb 2016

Brest - France   Last week we were in Brest to work on one of the biggest vessels in the world. Every time again a vessel like that impresses you, whether you want it or not. It's such an enormous ship!
Three of our engineers went. First we renewed the FWD seals and before changing the AFT seals (1180 mm) we advised to mount a new liner (there was one on board). And so the propeller had to be removed first.

Once that had been done, we mounted the liner and changed the seals. In the mean time we also checked the Airguard. 
After alignment we started the air system again and did some tests. Nothing special really, just always a special feeling if you're working on one of the big boys.
