The health of a vessel’s propulsion system is critical to ensure maximum product lifetime. A vessel’s thrusters are in near-constant use, and like any mechanical parts, require care to maintain peak functionality and maximise return on investment. To help you ensure the efficiency and longevity of your vessel’s propulsion systems, Damen Services offers a cost-effective way for vessel owners utilising Aquamaster thrusters to carry out thruster maintenance at Albwardy Damen shipyard or a yard of your choosing, while having the support of a highly experienced onsite Damen Service Engineer. Maintenance we perform includes minor- and major seal changes, complete thruster overhauls, polishing, balancing and dye penetrant testing of propellers, amongst other services.
Conversions, refits and upgrades
During the long operational lifetime of your vessels, equipment and components may need to be renewed. In addition, the environment in which your vessels operate is evolving, which can lead to significant changes in demands of your fleet. We are always able to advise you, as we continuously update and improve our designs and configurations, together with our in-house engineers, suppliers and partners. Be it a replacement of obsolete systems or a required increase in performance or efficiency, we have the experience to find the optimal solution to suit your needs.
