Marine Technical Assistance - Shaft Alignement

Ensuring optimum propulsion shaft line performance

Business Challenge

Shaft alignment is a key issue on ships, especially on large vessels such as containerships, bulks, tankers and gas-carriers. Any misalignment of the shafts can result in critical vibrations, higher operating costs or worse. Damage to the stern tube bearings or other key parts of the propulsion equipment can cause the vessel immobilization which induces high cost for towing, dry-docking and repairing.

Solution

Bureau Veritas offers shipyards and ship owners a complete set of services regarding shaft alignment including theoretical analyses (rational or elastic alignment and vibrations) and onboard technical support. These studies must be chosen according to the type of ship, shafting arrangement and required degree of accuracy. Bureau Veritas brings efficient solutions for optimisation of propulsion system for new constructions or trouble-shooting experience for ships in service.

What are the key benefits?

  • Avoid undesirable vibrations and their effects,

  • Prevent costly repairs and immobilization of the vessel,

  • Ensure operating the line shafting in the best running conditions for its optimal behaviour, particularly in the stern tube area,

  • Improve efficiency of the whole propulsion system.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
