The cargo vessel M/T Tirupati had an unfortunate damage on the 22ton heavy propeller shaft due to a defect oil alarm. The propeller shaft was incontestable stuck in the stern tube and the only possible solution was to cut it up and manufacture a new propeller shaft. MarineShaft has a large stock of classed material and luckily we could offer a new shaft Ø1050/685 x 7932 mm within 10 days.
Our logistic department took care of cargo arrangements, and we had a wooden cradle manufactured to transport the new shaft by air freight to vessels location in Oman. A service engineer followed/flew to Oman to carry out the final fitting of the new propeller shaft to the vessel´s cone.
