A ship may undergo damage on the propeller blades during the operation. Common damages to the propeller are the bent and/or the crack of its blades.
Cropping or replacement of the damaged blades are the most common and fast solutions in order to reduce to the minimum the vibrations that occur while sailing and prevent the vessel to be on dry dock.
Our team of naval architects, technicians provide permanent underwater repairs to all type of propellers
Naval architects study the damaged area of the propeller and provide to divers all the appropriate data and information required for the cropping. The divers in cooperation with ship repairers crop the propeller in the specific cutting line.
Our divers/technicians are trained also for replacement of a blade in a pitch propeller.
