As from the year 1970 lots op propulsion shaft alignment work have been carried out by us, in some cases including abatment of noise annoyance and remedial actions against vibrations.

 

 

The smallest shaft diametre, which we have jacked, is 127 mm and the largest one 665 mm indeed.

 

A number of them
were on board VLCC’s, to name a few:

 “ESSO Cambria”, “ESSO Nederland”, “ESSO Europoort”, “ESSO Bonaire”, “Fina Britannia”, “Fina Canada”, “Chevron Kentucky”, “Rudolph Peterson”, "Texaco Amsterdam",“Aquila”, “Lepton”, “Lembulus”, “British Patience”, “British Purpose”, “NEPCO Bahamas”.
