Replacement of a new blade tip and repair of damaged 4 bladed fixed propeller IN 3 days
The cargo vessel M/V Ann Rousing needed urgent care of its fixed propeller. All 4 blade tips were damaged, and one blade tip had a twist. MarineShaft was contacted by MARITIM SUPPLY APS for this urgent repair.
In our workshop, we cut off one of the blade tips and made a blade model for manufacturing of a new blade tip.
As we stock bronze plates in different dimensions, we had the material in stock to manufacture this tip immediately.
The blades were hot straightened, and the edges were welded along with the new blade tip. During the repair process, LPI tests are carried out according to classification requirements. The blades were grinded and polished before returning to the owner. The repair time for this was 3 days.
