MarineShaft in cooperation with Seadock Marine, recently manufactured one piece of rudder stock Ø520/7,136mm with stainless-steel sleeve for the bulk carrier M/V NEA TYHI while in dry dock in Singapore.
The project was carried out at short notice, the rudder stock was manufactured in Denmark and transported to Singapore.
In order to expedite the installation and completion of the project, the rudder stock lower taper was machined oversize.
Thereafter on-site work continued as two MarineShaft engineers with specialist tools travelled to Singapore to carry out in-situ machining of the rudder cone to fit the new rudder stock oversized dimension and complete blue-fit.
The repair was approved by a Class NK Surveyor and to the full satisfaction of vessel managers and completed within four weeks.
