Comprehensive shaft repair for a global ship owner and operator. The propulsion shaft had three liners that were severely worn out and each one had a different interference fit that required precision machining. With stringent specifications and critical timeline, an engineering approach was needed from start to finish.
The liners for this propulsion shaft aboard the Kilo Moana, a research vessel operated by the University of Hawaii were severely damaged. Western Machine Works manufactured the new liners and the shaft was certified refurbished by ABS (American Bureau of Shipping).
