Cattleya in Skagen

27. July, 2023

We are delighted to share our latest collaboration with the skilled team from Karstensens Skibsvaerft A/S in Skagen regarding the servicing of the trawler Cattleya.

As part of the service, we precisely replaced the steering tube packing gland. To accomplish this, it required the dismantling of the lower gear, intermediate shaft, as well as the steering tube and support tube.

To ensure optimal performance, new bearings and seals were installed, and we also replaced two hydraulic steering motors. This replacement was carried out due to detected internal leakage in the hydraulic motors.

Vores team på 2 teknikere arbejdede på opgaven, og det tog dem cirka 10 dage at fuldføre servicen på Cattleya.

Ved West-Marine forstår vi vigtigheden af pålidelig service og kvalitetsarbejde, og vi er taknemmelige for muligheden for at arbejde sammen med Karstensens Skibsværft på denne spændende opgave og levere denne kvalitetsløsning til Cattleya.
