Tank level indication system for the George Stephenson

Monday 16 March 2015

Observator is known for the quality of the equipment, and for that reason we were selected to supply the Tank level indication system for the George Stephenson.

This steamboat (26 x 4 m) was launched in 2011 after 5 years of building, as much as possible recycled material was used. The Teakwood for the maindeck is estimated 200 years old. The ship is build in 1950 style, with all the parts from those days. Parts from old ships were re-used, e.g. doorknobs from the US Navy, wooden doors from famous ships like the Norway. The screws were casted from a part of one of the screw of the French aircraft carrier Clemenceau.

The Observator pneumatic Tanklevel system supplies the ancient pressure gauges (see picture) the pressure of the tank level, in a very reliable way, the system has a class approval which is needed for the ship overall certification.

We are proud that our system is chosen and is fitted in a machine room filled with the best designs from the last century, and we know that the pneumatic Tank level system will last for a very long time, and will work very reliable.
