Our busy year continues… A great example of utilising our complete workscope.
Stone Marine Shipcare recently completed a full thrust unit overhaul and blade refurbishment here in the UK.
Most of the work that we undertake for our Principals Nakashima Propeller Co. is completed overseas but, on this occasion, due to a limited docking period the thrust unit was removed, and blanking plates fitted.
The unit was then transported to the UK where the unit was overhauled in cooperation with our sister company Stone Marine Services while the vessel continued, maintaining its schedule, and avoiding any delays.
All of the propeller blades showed tip damage which was also repaired. Full repair was completed, and the blades were refitted back to onto the unit to allow full pitch testing and static pressure tests before preparing the unit for freight back to the vessel.
Excellent work all round.
