The Ferry Sleipner-Fur

16. September, 2022

On a Thursday morning in November 2021, the ferry Sleipner-Fur ran aground around Sundsøre.

West-Marine was called in to investigate the ferry’s thrusters. After a few dive surveys the problem was uncovered and the thrusters were brought to our workshop for an overhaul.

It turned out that one thruster had picked up a huge rock, preventing the rudder propeller from turning. The stone had destroyed several propeller blades and therefore had to be replaced. Furthermore, West-Marine’s technicians investigated whether the gear inside the engine itself was damaged as a result of the jammed stone.

The task was solved with great satisfaction and the ferry Sleipner-Fur could resume the important crossing between Sundsøre and Hvalpsund.

The ferry Sleipner-Fur had been deployed as a replacement for the ferry Mary, which normally runs the route between Sundsøre and Hvalpsund.
