Due to severe grounding both the propeller shaft and the propeller of M/V ACHILLEAS got severely damaged and had to be replaced. As time was crucial, we manufactured a new shaft within 40 days. Thanks to our strong relationship with European forging foundries, we managed to get a flanged forged shaft with 850mm flange diameter, overall length of 6000mm and shaft diameter of 500mm, in rough condition, with 30 days. The final machining and approval took place in our workshop in almost 10 days, under the supervision of Bureau Veritas. The machining was carried out on our heavy duty CNC turning lathe, which can process workpieces of up to 2.5m diameter and 10m long, with maximum weight of 60tons.
