Ruined gearbox in Namibia

Feb 2016

Namibia - Walvisbay   In came an anchor handling towboat. It had severe thruster damage. Inspection by AEGIR's local workshop showed that the gear box was completely ruined. All gears were damaged and the unit as a whole couldn’t be used anymore. We have replaced it for   a new gear-set and once this was done, the vessel could continue its work.

Now we have done a lot of gear box repair, but in Walvisbay we had never before repaired a gear box so messed up. Of course such damage poses the customer for a problem, but for us goes that we actually like all challenges, bigger or small.
