Our new machining capability was functional and necessary when we carried out this recent job which included the on-site machining of a seal seat for a waterjet with an outer diameter of 1,555mm.

This process involved :

  • Boring the stern tube, boring the rudder neck bearings, and boring of the rudder horn
  • Machining the cones in rudder blades, and machining the cones on shafts
  • Welding rudder blade cones
  • Machining and welding damage on the shafts
  • Aligning the shaft line and rudder line
  • Jack-up tests
  • Run-out measurement services
  • Shaft withdrawal
  • Disassembly and assembly/fitting
  • Modification
  • Grinding and polishing
  • Supervision

We hope you will keep us in mind for your next on-site request.
