I was in Turkey for repairs and troubleshooting of an anchor windlass/escort towing winch of a tug boat.
Troubleshooter jobs, good and mad that you went through.Do you have A Great Story About it? Write and share them here.
After two more hours spent on the highway I got to some Tuzla shipyard where the driver dropped me to an office.
Going inside the office and after discussion with the people in charge I found that I had to put my coverall and start the work immediately because there was no time and we had to finish fast. Nice I said and no fuzz no buzz I changed my clothes and together with others including a superintendent we started the job. The job was to replace the hydraulic motor of a anchor windlass /escort towing winch.
It was unique. The way we handled the job was amazing. The superintendent was pretty good.
Everything was done perfectly. Sometimes you need to be creative and don’t give up when you have something in your mind.
Something about job: Disconnected all the pipes and marked properly. Made temporally scaffolding for supporting the hydraulic motor. Slacken the screws until the coupling ring was fully released.Pulled the motor off the driven shaft supported by the chain block. The motor was taken out from driven shaft and place it on the deck.
Then they brought the new hydraulic motor and we installed in place.
Everything was running smoothly of course the guys were prepared they just wanted me there because I was from the maker side like guarantee.I got it anyway the guys wanted to cover some mistakes because they discovered some broken spring in the hydraulic system of the winch so to be on the safety side they decided to change the hydraulic motor.
At 6 o’ clock in the afternoon everything was ready.
During testing some leakage occurs. Rectified the leakage and tested further the operation of the system. Hydraulic motor was installed properly and system operationally was satisfactorily.
Checking and troubleshooting of the system
