Seatec Repairs has successfully performed for Carnival Cruise Line the replacement of n°2 chillers, each weighing 35 Tons, on board Carnival Conquest and Glory during dry dock in Freeport (Bahamas). In order to get free working space and to allow the units disembarkation /embarkation all interferences have been dismounted (sea water pipes, steam pipes, valves and insulation, bilge pipes, ventilation ducts, electrical switchboard and floor plates).
A temporary shell opening between tank top and deck A (8,0 x 4,5 meters) has been created. A steel platform of HEB profile, properly reinforced, has been positioned on the dry dock bottom and firmly connected to the ship side iwo of the shell opening.
One existing pillar (350 x 350mm) between chillers has been temporarily moved and one longitudinal beam properly reinforced.
