    Project Overview 

    Hythe Engineering is undertaking a pivotal project aimed at enhancing a Royal Naval vessel. Its operational efficiency will be improved through the installation of a new diesel generator for the forward machinery room. This project, like most of the work at Hythe Engineering, requires meticulous planning, precise execution, and seamless collaboration among various teams to ensure successful outcomes.


    Structural Completion and Pre-installation Activities 

    Recent achievements include the structural completion and accomplishment of all key activities essential for the installation of the new diesel generator. This phase involved the creation of new external-facing sea chests and obtaining approvals from Lloyds and NDE for steelwork and welding. Despite the complexities, the team demonstrated exceptional proficiency, with minimal defects in the completed work. 


    FMR Pipework & Penetrations 

    Building on the strong foundation created during the initial stages, the project progressed seamlessly into the phase of FMR Pipework & Penetrations. The meticulously crafted penetrations and equipment seatings served as pivotal starting points for the mechanical team, facilitating the smooth integration of vital lockout pipework and critical systems. This collaborative effort showed in real time how unity and teamwork are essential for successfully executing complex projects.
