Halliday Engineering recently completed major engineering works on Svitzer's tug 'PB Plenty' as part of their Joint Venture with Sydney City Marine
Newcastle-based tug ‘PB Plenty’ had the good fortune to come under the continuing partnership between Halliday Engineering and Sydney City Marine. The partnership brings unprecedented efficiency and opportunity to clients, and already it has proven to be a great success. With Halliday’s fitters and boilermakers on site at Sydney City Marine and their precision workshop nearby, work on the tug was much more efficient and streamlined.
The work on ‘PB Plenty’ included a 10 year service on the Azimuth thrusters and a 5 year service on the forward winch, which involved machining and fitting new bronze bushes. Find out more about the full range of jobs carried out on the tug below.
Against the odds, the engineering works were achieved in the scheduled 20 days despite the obstacles COVID-19 presented. “Getting it done on time was down to the close interaction with Sydney City Marine — we are on the same team and have the same goals, the same target at the end of the day,” says Chris Bradley, Project Director.
