Shaft Alignment Studies and Analysis

Ensuring optimum propeller shaft performance and helping avoid costly problems

Business Challenge

Proper shaft alignment is a key issue on ships, especially on large vessels such as containerships, bulks, tankers and gas-carriers. Any wrong alignment of the shaft can result in undesirable vibrations, higher operating costs or worse. Damage to the stern-tube bearings or other key parts of the vessel's propulsion equipment could result in the ship being immobilized.
