Case Study: Fearless
Fearless Furmanite – at Her Majesty’s Service
CUSTOMER: Royal Navy HMS Fearless
Cracking was identified around boiler pipe work, during a scheduled maintenance check on HMS Fearless, resulting in the need for the ship to be dry docked since access to the damaged area was severely restricted. With just 16 inches of space to access the pipe work around the boiler Fleet Support Limited (FSL) knew that repair would be almost impossible, but dry docking to replace the damaged pipework and boiler parts would incur a considerable cost and extend the planned shutdown by weeks.
