We regularly fit shafts and gauges as part of the propeller manufacturing process. In addition Technicians attend shipyards and dry docks to perform propeller to shaft bedding operations.
If required, Stone Marine Shipcare can supervise dockyard personnel carrying out this work, and also liaise with Classification Society Surveyors.
It is obviously vital that a ship’s propeller is correctly fitted to the shaft, since loss of grip can be catastrophic.
Stone Marine Shipcare engineers can supervise shop testing and shipyard mounting to ensure that all the technical and Classification Society requirements are observed.
