A tunnel thruster manufacturer contacted SGS US West as they required a warranty inspection and repair be executed on a tunnel thruster on a container ship.  Within hours of arrival, the source of the problem was identified.  Additional team members mobilized to the location, installed hyperbaric doors on either side of the tunnel thruster to create a dry environment for a permanent repair to be executed.
