The list of tasks in the repair order for the fleet service boat ‘ALSTER’ was long. In view of this, the repair term in Rendsburg laid out a precisely detailed plan of the work to be done well in advance. This enabled the team to complete the tasks in hand efficiently and without any delays. The tasks included:
- Checking of all safety-relevant equipment and installations, including high-pressure steam boilers
- Application of anti-slip coatings on all decks
- Overhaul of the e-diesel engines
- Repair of hull spigots, davits, propeller shafting and steering gear
On 13.10.2015, the ‘ALSTER’ set course for Eckernförde on her shakedown cruise after only four months in the naval yards. The result: The fleet service boat is now shipshape again and ready for her next mission.
