GAC Marine Completes Propeller Installation

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Global ship spares logistics specialist GAC Marine Logistics (GML) has successfully completed a complex ships spares movement involving a 7.5-metre diameter, 28-ton propeller from Kobe, Japan, and 9-metre long, 13-ton shaft from Busan, South Korea, for Greece-based ship operator Atlantic Bulk Carriers Management (ABC).

GML was entrusted with the entire operation, from receiving the propeller and shaft from the suppliers’ doors at their separate points of origin, through to fitting the shaft to the propeller before placing them in long-term storage at its dedicated warehouse in Singapore.

A team of Wartsila technicians was flown in for the fitting. GML hired a 150 MT crane to lift the shaft for safe installation, and arranged for a power generator, blocks of teak wood to support the propeller, lifting team for security purposes and cleaning of the items. After fitting, the shaft was removed from the propeller and the items are stored separately at a secure location in GML’s facility in Singapore.
