Overhaul on the Sylt Ferry

9. June, 2023

The Sylt Ferry, which sails between Havneby on Rømø and List on the German island of Sylt, recently visited the port of Esbjerg, where it underwent a major overhaul.

Esbjerg Shipyard A/S chose to collaborate with West-Marine for the overhaul of the ferry’s propeller hubs, propeller blades, and replacement of the sealing glands. The overhaul of the propeller hubs was conducted under the supervision of a Kongsberg Maritime supervisor, who also participated in the collaboration.

Our three service technicians completed their part of the overhaul several days before the scheduled completion, much to everyone’s satisfaction.

A big thanks to Esbjerg Shipyard for including us in this task, as the successful overhaul would not have been possible without their professional expertise and experience.

The ferry is now back in operation, ensuring smooth crossings between the Danish and German islands.
