Fast Repair and New Manufacturing Solved an Urgent Need

When a rudder stock needed urgent attention with the vessel only had a few days in dock at Karstensen’s Shipyard in Skagen, MarineShaft completed the repair in only two working days.

The rudder stock belongs to a Norwegian fishing vessel Fagraberg. The rudder stock suffered from corrosion.

In our workshop, the rudder stock was welded up using MAG- welding.

The stainless-steel sleeves were renewed and a new bronze bushing for the rudder trunk was manufactured.  The raw material for both stainless-steel sleeves and bronze bushing was in our stock.

MarineShaft has the class approved welding certificates to start a repair immediately. This is an important factor when time matters.

Our large stock of class approved raw material also ensures a short manufacturing time. This repair job was class approved by DNV-GL.

No matter if you need repair or replacement please remember we can assist you with both matters.

We keep a large stock of materials with class certified 3.2 certificates for almost any request – manufactured or as raw material.

MarineShaft carries out repairs and straightening of propeller shafts for the marine industry.
