Eastbourne Lock Maintenance Complete
Sovereign Harbour recently re-opened lock 1 following some annual, pre-emptive maintenance undertaken during November and December. Contractors completed a two week hydraulic systems overhaul of lock 1, which included the removal and re-installation of three of the four hydraulic rams. All hydraulic hoses and valve blocks were also replaced as part of our ongoing maintenance schedules.
Premier takes advantage of the quieter period to perform essential maintenance on the marina's infrastructure like the lock with this kind of work taking place on an annual basis, usually on alternate locks to ensure that there is always one lock running. This pre-emptive maintenance helps to ensure the smooth running of the locks during the busier times in the year.
