Repair of Ballast Pipe System

The challenge

50 Leaks On Ballast System

The ballast pipe system had around 50 registered leaks, causing significant operational challenges.

Prior to using Wencon repair solutions, various methods such as plugs and bands were attempted to stop the leaks, but these proved ineffective.

The Outcome

Ballast Pipe System Restored

After various unsuccessful methods to stop around 50 leaks in the ballast pipe system, Wencon repair solutions were applied. Using Wencon Under Water products, which can be applied on wet surfaces, the leaks were effectively sealed.

The repair involved multiple layers of Wencon UW Coating and Reinforcement Tape, along with a steel plate for added strength.

The final solution successfully resisted approximately 8 bars of pressure, ensuring a durable and effective repair.
