  • Replacement of standing rigging A.R.B.V. Simon Bolivar

    During major maintenance in 2006 the sail training ship A.R.B.V. Simon Bolivar (Venezuelan Navy) was put through replacement of the standing rigging with marine grade AISI 316L stainless steel wire ropes and turnbuckles thus being the first tall ship in Latin America using this material. Wienecke was involved both in setting up riggings and spars and in the design, engineering, manufacture and setting up of every element used in this project.

  • Replacement of standing rigging A.R.C. Gloria

    In 2010 began the first stage of standing rigging replacement of sail training ship A.R.C. Gloria (Colombian Navy) with marine grade AISI 316l stainless steel wire ropes and turnbuckles. Wienecke was involved in the design, engineering, manufacture and setting up of every element used in this project.

  • Pre-tensioning of standing rigging B.E. Esmeralda

    In 2010 B.E. Esmeralda (Chilean Navy) was put through tension measuring and trimming of her standing rigging.

  • Replacement of standing rigging B.A.E. Guayas

    In 2014 Wienecke was involved in replacing part of the standing rigging of sail training ship B.A.E. Guayas (Ecuadorean Navy). This was an emergency repair work of damages suffered in the bowsprit during the 2014 South America Sails Regatta. Inspection of damages was done at La Guaira, Venezuela, where a provisional repair was done. Damaged wire ropes were replaced later on in Rio de Janeiro; twenty three wire ropes (shrouds and backstays) were replaced in only three days. This allowed the Guayas to continue sailing via Cape Horn and arrive safe at port.

This work was done under DNV-GL and Lloyd´s Register standards.
