After discussions and site meetings between Dales Marine, Marine Electrical Engineering was tasked with temporarily removing all electrical cabling and associated parts needed to remove the auxiliary engines and alternators; this included control panels for parts of the stabiliser system. Once Marine Electrical installed the new equipment, these cables would be reinstated. Installation of temporary power supplies allowed for all switchboard work to be carried out safely.
Marine Electrical removed all redundant cabling from the existing four off auxiliary engines/ alternators; most of these cables ran back to the engine control room. They installed new cable containment to carry the control cabling from the engines to the new control panels and the switch-room. The existing containment for the power cables was modified accordingly.
New cables were installed, by Marine Electrical, for the engine controls from the engines to the new control panels, alarm system, and the main switchboard. Marine Electrical installed new power cables for the alternators going to the main switchboard.
Upon completing the above, the units were load tested using a 1.2Mw load bank and witnessed by Class.
