Following the installation of a new High fog Fire Fighting system to upgrade the existing system on a cruise ship there was an area where the new system had to be tied into the existing. The works included the need to install two ne tee sections complete with inline isolation valves
The ship was in full service and was only in dock for a few hours. The modifications had to be carried out during the time she was docked. To complicate matters further, as the works were on the ships fire suppression system, it was imperative that the works went ahead without complication. Any delays could mean the ship would not sail and 3000 passengers would be delayed or have their cruise holiday cancelled. All the works were overseen from start to finish by a Lloyds Register inspector. He would have the final say as to whether the ship was sea worthy following the completion of the works.
