The scope of the project was to remove a davit from a ship being decommissioned and upgrade and re-install on another vessel. MWD was tasked with the removal and upgrade of the electrical control system including the supply of a new remote control operating system to replace the existing deck mounted units.
Timescale for the project was of critical importance and the full project had to be completed within 12 weeks. Working alongside 3 other companies, the project was successful and completed on time.
Upgrading included the design and build of a new control cabinet and the writing of a new PLC program. Installation and wiring into a 10ft HPU container unit and checking/replacing existing davit mounted sensors and valves was also carried out
On completion of sea trials the re-installed system was handed over to the customer.
