Commercial customer, City of London

We were enlisted by one of the City of London's livery companies to carry out a full periodic inspection and test of their hall, HQS Wellington, which is moored at Temple Stairs on the Thames. The inspection and testing process lasted a week and covered every final circuit in the installation including all 17 distribution boards.

As a busy vessel our work had to be carried out around the numerous functions taking place and also around the large number of people working on board the ship. For this reason we had to implement various safety measures and schedule our work carefully so as to cause the minimum level of disruption possible.

A marine vessel isn't your typical electrical installation, for that reason special measures have to be employed when testing circuits and inspecting wiring methods, in addition to the standard procedures adopted when carrying out an inspection on a land based installation. Some of these include taking into account the different external influences subjected to the electrical equipment on board and also the differing environmental impact the installation experiences compared to that of an installation on dry ground.

One of the main areas of work on board the ship was the galley. As a fully operational kitchen we had to ensure that this was tested and inspected out of hours. The ship uses solely electric power for cooking and therefore has a large number of circuits supplying power to various items of kitchen equipment, from ovens to grills and pot washers to ventillation systems. We had to ensure that everything was back in working order before the next day's kitchen service, that all control panels were re-assembled and that the supply to the galley from then on was uninterrupted.

Once the inspection and testing process was completed a report on our findings was written up. A report will contain any observations made on any electrical defects that have an adverse effect on electrical safety. Any items that require urgent attention or that necessitate that improvement be recommended will be noted and passed on to the client as part of the final report.

In this instance, taking into the account the size, scale and age of the installation, it was found to be in relatively good condition bar a small number of items that could be rectified by the on site maintenance team. The client was very happy with how smoothly the job ran and was pleased at how we had managed to completely minimise disruption to a working ship.
