Rebuilding of Thruster Gear Housing

The challenge

Corroded Thruster Gear Housing

In early 2011, a critical issue arose with the thruster gear housing of a vessel . The housing was severely corroded and damaged, threatening the operational integrity and efficiency of the thruster system. This problem, if not addressed promptly and effectively, could lead to significant downtime and financial loss for the vessel operator.

The Outcome

Thruster Gear Housing Restored

The refurbishment process was completed successfully, resulting in a thruster gear housing that was not only restored to its original condition but also better protected against future corrosion.

The application of Wencon Coating ensured that the steel was effectively separated from seawater, mitigating the risk of bimetallic corrosion for many years to come. This solution proved to be highly cost-effective, offering significant savings compared to the cost of a new unit and minimizing operational downtime.
