Repair of two gear boxes on board of ferry “VILNIUS Seaways” ship owner AB DFDS Seaways
During the short time of docking of the ferry, two large gear boxes (2 x 2650 kW) were repaired. The repair consisted of the renewal of all bearings as well as the alignment and generation of excellent tooth contact pattern to ensure a long lifetime of the gear boxes. The repair performed within this short time was successfully concluded with a sea trial which passed without any objection. MET GmbH has continued with this project the series of successful modernisation and repair works of large marine gear boxes.
