STEERING GEAR SYSTEM: One (1) new innovative steering gear power pack is installed in starboard cockpit storage locker, further mentioned as steering gear compartment. The hydraulic power pack is serving a double-acting cylinder arrangement, connected to the rudder stock under helmsman position, for the control of the rudder. The power pack is designed for following functional controls: • Autopilot control in manual/auto mode. • Non follow-up power steering at helmsman console control panel, especially usage for manoeuvring in harbour. The electric pump motor of the continuous running power pack is controlled by a PLC and frequency controller, mounted in the steering gear control box, situated in the locker in between the beds in the guest cabin. By means of the frequency controller, the pump speed can be adapted to the sea-state/weather conditions, minimizing the power consumption. In addition the PLC is providing additional intelligence for even better power management by switching the controller on/off under very stable course conditions. Power supply for steering gear unit is either from generator or via the main 24Vdc/230Vac inverter. Last supply used when under sail, where the consumption is from board net batteries. Control of the system at chart table panel and on helmsman console. All hydraulic hoses are completely renewed. Under the power pack a drip tray is mounted to avoid spill of hydraulic oil. Cockpit drain system: In addition to drainage by gravity, a new extra drain tank with membrane pump is mounted below the cockpit. The drain tank is also collecting the water from the portside & starboard storage lockers, which can be entered by the hatches in the cockpit. Capacity of drain collecting tank: app. 40 Ltr. Each storage locker sump is equipped with a small 24Vdc bilge water pump (new) that is automatically discharging the drain water into the collecting tank. A manual/automatic 24 Vdc membrane pump (new) is discharging the drain water directly overboard. The pumps are controlled by PLC logic and are situated at chart table panel with running, level & high level indicators.
