Years and years Van Hussen B.V. has been active in the
marine propulsion field.
We are specialising in propulsion shaft alignment of ships in operation,
using a hydraulic jack for pushing shafts up and down. Results of the measurements are plotted in
graphs, which enable our
engineer to draw conclusions as to the actual bearing reactions on the
coupled shafting with hydraulic jack removed. If captioned forces are
beyond allowable propulsion limits, remedial actions are taken by
offsetting the failing bearings.
Results of the measurements
Results of the
measurements are available on the spot and recommendations are made immediately.
As an average we get your marine shafting system back in good working
order within 24 hours upon our boarding the ship. The only need we have is
two fitters or one handy shipboard engineer.
