Wärtsilä Linesafe bearing

Technologies relating to ship design and operation have evolved over the years, creating greater efficiencies and extended lifespans for onboard machinery. These developments are typically born by customer needs. One such market demand is to have a heavier radial load capacity for the bearings supporting the shaftline. This demand can be due to the requirement of fewer bearings in order to meet space saving requirements, or as a means for reducing operational risks.Wartsila-Linesafe-bearing
