FN Diving Team Completes Propeller Repair in Dominican Republic
After an urgent call from one of the customers, FN Diving Rotterdam organized a team to attend the vessel the next day in the Dominican Republic.
On arrival the FN Diving team was ready to start immediately with the inspection and repairs after some local preparations.
After consulting their propeller repair partner a repair plan was made allowing FN Diving to repair their customers propeller on site within the vessels schedule.
In order to assure a minimum delay for the vessel, the decision was made to crop and repair the damages in a way maintaining the propellers hydro-dynamic requirements.
Within 12 hours all blades were cropped and hydro-dynamically reshaped, allowing the vessel to continue her voyage.
The precise and well communicated operation was possible due to a smooth cooperation between the FN Diving team, the ships staff and their propeller repair partner, resulting in a cost and time effective repair for the vessel.
