Larger planned installations can be conducted alongside to avoid shipyard costs.
- Port stays
Smaller jobs and planned equipment changes can be handled during shorter stays in port.
Scope of service
Installation is a tailor-made service where the scope and duration depend on the needs. The following general steps are included:
- Pre-installation inspection
At an early stage, an experienced Alfa Laval supervisor conducts an onboard inspection to determine the extent of the installation.
The installation is performed by a team of Alfa Laval experts, usually comprised of welders/boilermakers led by a supervisor. In a typical boiler installation, the team handles:
- Correct positioning and fixation of the equipment
- Alignment and level check of the equipment
- Installation of required system piping
- Electrical wiring and connection of all required electrical cables
- Control and alarm point setting
Once the installation is completed, a skilled Alfa Laval service engineer commissions the plant on board. This involves:
- Control of installation and alarm point setting
- Commissioning and start-up
