Underwater bow thruster operation before dry dock

A unit with internal damage due to depreciation on normal use had to be overhauled in Dry Dock as the docking period was limited FN Diving arranged to take to the Thruster Unit prior to docking making sure the unit was ready and overhauled before the arranged docking.

FN Diving performs a wide range of repair or maintenance work on all types of thrusters.

The Complete unit can be removed and overhauled or re installed, propeller blades and seals can be replaced and specific repair work on any part of a thruster can be performed on-site.

These repairs are performed in cooperation with Holland Propeller Services and most conveniently within the vessels sailing schedule.Bow thruster operations are performed using a special system that creates a dry environment in the Thruster tunnel.
