Repair and Conversion

Marine and Offshore

Harris Pye has more than three decades of experience in ship repairs and conversions, including:

  • Boiler troubleshooting and repair
  • Deck boilers
  • Electrical switchgear
  • Instrumentation and control
  • Pipework
  • Riding squads and yard services


Harris Pye has vast experience with FPSO, FSO, FSU and FLNG conversions. We were involved in pioneer projects when FPSOs and FSOs were still at the experimental stage in the 1980s.

Over this period of time, Harris Pye has:

  • Made key contributions to developing the safe use of dual fuel for boilers, as well as safe and practical application and installation methods
  • Been involved in more than 60% of the world’s FPSOs, from conversions to new builds
  • Become a leader in supporting “floating assets” in every major operating hub around the world

Through all stages of conversion, from conception to final commissioning, our highly experienced and dedicated engineering teams obtain relevant approvals and undertake all design work, calculations, fabrication, installation and commissioning.

All aspects of conversions are offered including, but not limited to, remedial boiler works, installation of multi-fuel system burners and all associated service lines - especially gas and crude oil supply systems. All mechanical, control, electrical and automation aspects are covered to complete conversions on a turnkey basis.
