EGS raise funds for Cry in the Dark

4th – 15th June 2012


This fortnight within the overhaul department Technicians Mick and Chris have overhauled two RE 1104A-3G governors for the RMAS Careful. These took place in the format of routine overhaul with all consumable and worn parts replaced as necessary.

See to the right a photo of one of the REs on test, one complete RE ready for decaling, in addition to a great photo of the RMAS Careful at Plymouth on the 25th May in 1995. For more images and information, see the Royal Maritime Auxiliary Service website here.

Upon completion of testing by technician Ivor, the REs will be sent  to be packed for shipping by Storeman Ian. Technicians Chris and Mick will then move onto the overhaul of two PG-PL governors.

This fortnight we have also supplied three UG40 actuators for Baku, Azerbaijan for a pipe laying vessel.


The work we are doing for British Sugar, which we showcased last fortnight, is almost complete. Technician Chris attended site to fit the CPC-II and complete all pipework. The original CPC bracket was in poor condition consisting of a plastic box which was worn and broken.

We designed and made a new bracket for the CPC-II which was moved back to make space for the new, much more robust bracket; far more suitable for the design.

Technicians Karl and Jon are onsite fitting the HMI and completing the final details; testing should take place Monday.


This Friday the 15th of June, some of the EGS team members will be baking sausage rolls and cakes to raise money for Cry in the Dark, a Colchester based charity that support children and families in Romania. For more information about Cry in the Dark, visit their website. We are also hoping to have a BBQ fundraising day later this summer.
