Hydrex Carries Out Propeller Repair in Uruguay

Hydrex diver/technician teams performed a propeller blade cropping operation on a 229-meter bulker while the vessel was at anchorage in Punta Del Este, Uruguay. 

After the team arrived at the vessel’s location, they started the underwater operation with a detailed survey of the affected propeller blades. This underwater inspection revealed that three of the four blades were bent severely.

The team used the information acquired during the inspection to calculate and determine the correct measurements needed to modify the tip of the propeller blades.

The divers cropped the damaged blades and ground their edges to give them the correct shape. The fourth blade, which had not been damaged, was also cropped to keep the propeller’s balance.
