World’s Largest Bulker in for Stern Tube Fix

Thursday, April 22, 2004
Machine Support B.V. recently completed an stern tube alignment job on what is touted to be the world’s largest dry bulk carrier, Berge Stahl, which is a 1,125-ft. (343 m) long and 213.2 ft. (65 m) wide ship that can hold 360,000 tons of iron ore. The carrier is fully dependent on the port of Rotterdam, since this is the only port on the European continent that this ship can access with its 75 ft. (23 m) draft. The main diesel engine is three story high Hyundai – B&W 7L90MCE.
