Wärtsilä sterntube solutions
Oil and water lubricated sterntubes
Wärtsilä sterntube solutions are ready-to-install stern tubes but can also be custom designed to fit specific vessel requirements. The solutions are designed to meet individual customer requirements and specifications. The Wärtsilä standard stern tube assemblies are fitted with centrifugally cast white metal bearings or composite bearings, depending on the application or lubricating medium. The solution encourages a fit-and-forget concept as bearings and all additional items are already fitted and installed on delivery.
The installation and alignment is a simple and swift procedure when compared to traditional methods, allowing for significant reduction in installation time and resources.
