The U.K. Royal Fleet Auxiliary’s RFA Argus serves as a Primary Casualty Receiving Ship maintaining a 100-bed medical complex aboard. A&P Falmouth has asked Houlder to provide technical guidance during the retrofit of its ballast water treatment System.
The engineering work includes an initial survey, the identification of hazards and creation of a risk register, development of a procurement specification for major and long lead items and an installation specification including definition of new pipework, shipping routes and removal drawings.
The required outputs are the positioning of the ballast water treatment system; the support frame for the system skid; integration of two new ballast water treatment pumps with seating arrangements; design of new seawater pumps, valves, piping and connections and electrical and compressed air supply
Houlder will supply A&P Falmouth with a project risk register, a procurement specification and guidance document and an installation specification and guidance document that includes definition of new pipes and connections, shipping routes and removal drawings. Other calculations and drawings include skid and new pump seatings, piping schematics, electrical connections and routing and required switchboard modifications.
