Schottel thruster

Due to an abnormal noise from the thruster drive, Boone was asked to carry out an inspection on board.

Through the inspection cover our service engineer observed some teeth damage. The decision was made to dismount the thruster and inspect it thoroughly. The bevel helical gear set turned out to be damaged on the crown and pinion gear wheel teeth. This set is replaced by a new set. All bearings and seals were replaced, several parts were machined at the position of damaged or worn surfaces.

After the thruster was mounted with the new parts it was pressure tested for leakages and a test run was executed. After the successful test run the thruster was painted with an underwater paint system and delivered back on board.
