  1. No idea about the rest of the maintenance I can only speak for a what's happening on the propulsion motor and that's running well apparently on time
  2. Thank you I do admit I'm a little bit touchy in fact I'm bloody touchy I used to be a ship builder but I had a stroke and I'm not a happy chappy Anyway the job is going well there is a big crew on the propulsion motor from Sydney Newcastle and Brisbane they are enjoying the food on the ship and getting stuck in and making a quid I would hope one of the crew is 64 and they have to get up inside onto the and drill out the coil holding are wedges and that's all done it's quite amazing how much does there is inside that housing you would think at sea that the atmosphere would be quite clean To tell you the truth I'm not very familiar with electric motors my speciality is 4-cycle diesels of which this ship has four they are 16 cylinder Wartzila Sulzer There is an excellent video on YouTube about how that company was formed in Switzerland or maybe it was Austria Sulzer
  3. No it is good.publicity for his firm Besdides you can find the power trainof each .ship on The www It.is not.a nuclear sub after all They are.proud to do the job Strange attitude here Fact is better than all the speculation i would have thought They.are .on.sched and the ship.will not dry dock
  4. I did not say that the ship would be on time rather not on time I said they were behind with the schedule on the motor ut.have caught up
  5. The ship is not in drydock yet but they are trying to get the stator parts out of the motor and I can tell you it is not an easy task my son is working on that motor and he said it is a bloody nightmare hot dirty and very dangerous take a look at the size of the man standing by this 19000 kW DC motor He works for Sulza
  6. My son says it is terribly hot down in the engine room the upside is he gets very big meals they work 12 hours a day day in day out they are supposed to be there for a month but he cannot see it being finished by that timek
  7. My son works forSulza They are working on the main propulsion she has two DC Motors 19000 kilowatts each side they have to strip out the stator and the job is massive dirty and dangerous they have to do this with the rotar in-situ and I can tell you now they are well behind time and up against it As you probably know the power for these Motors comes from the generator Hooked Up to the main engines which are 11000 approximately kilowatts each I doubt very much this ship be anywhere near on time she is supposed to be in dry dock but she's floating at the moment I just want my son to come back home safe this is one hell of a job I will keep you all posted
