The Netherlands: FN Diving Conducts Underwater Propeller Repair in Amsterdam

Recently the owners of a Container vessel consulted FN Diving regarding heavy vibrations of the vessel’s propeller.

FN Diving team attended the vessel for an underwater inspection while offloading in Amsterdam port.

The underwater inspection revealed 4 damaged propeller blades due to ice damage on a 5200MM Propeller.

In order to assure a minimum delay for the vessel, the decision was made to crop the damage in a way maintaining the propellers hydro-dynamic requirements.

After consulting the propeller repair partner a repair plan was made allowing FN Diving to repair the customers propeller on site within the vessels schedule.

Operations started directly during cargo ops the FN Diving team was ready to start immediately with the repairs using the specially developed diamond propeller cutting equipment.

Within the cargo schedule all blades were cropped and hydro-dynamically reshaped, allowing the vessel to continue her voyage.

The precise and well communicated operation was possible due to a smooth cooperation between the FN Diving team, the ships staff and our propeller repair partner, resulting in a cost and time effective repair for the vessel.
