Date of project: 2014
Key objectives: STOP OIL LEAK ON BOW THRUSTER
Project location: NORTH SEA
Key barriers/issues: Remote installation guidance required
Key achievements: Oil leak reduced from 14L/day to 0L/day
AtZ Marine was asked to resolve a 14 litre/day oil leak from a TV150 bow thruster on the Gargano, a North Sea offshore support vessel. After analysing the system drawings and information about the leakage, AtZ Marine dispatched 60L of ABCON® thruster stop leak product the same day for delivery to Gt. Yarmouth. The crew added the ABCON® with remote assistance from AtZ Marine and the leakage reduced to zero within 24 hours. The vessel continued normal operations until its planned docking in mid 2015.
