Thruster Changeout – July 2017

Over Canada Day, one of the many cruise vessels that pay a visit to Vancouver required service. During a normal port stay the SGS Vancouver team was tasked with removing one of the bow thrusters from the vessel. In order to carry out the extraction in a timely fashion, all preparation work was carried out a week earlier by a SGS team while the vessel was cruising in Alaska. In Vancouver, the thruster removable gear / propeller assembly was removed from the gear case and transferred to an awaiting crane. The thruster is currently being reconditioned by a local workshop together with the OEM technicians. When completed, the thruster will be reinstalled by SGS divers during a voyage layover. The experience was made especially memorable with Canada Day fireworks overhead while rigging the thruster from the water.
