A cross-collaborative service

Wärtsilä Shaft Line Repair Services brings together alignment and measurement specialists, data analysts, project managers and field service engineers from across the company for emergency repair work on vessel shaft lines damaged by a major shipping incident or presenting with signs of wear and tear.

As well as a globally-present team of experts, we have manufacturing facilities around the world and an extensive product portfolio, enabling us to equip vessels in need of urgent repair and support ship owners and operators when they need it most.

Keeping customers in operation

Marine incidents manifest in a number of ways and can have significant impacts on a vessel's shaft line and associated equipment.

In times like these, we combine our expertise in investigative procedures and project management to pinpoint the problem and get a vessel's shaft line back up and running as quickly as possible. 
In the right place at the right time.
      Common symptoms

      Common symptoms vary from noise and vibration problems to leaking seals and bearing deterioration.

      If a vessel's shaft line is presenting with common symptoms, we can project manage the whole process: carrying out specialist diagnostics and calculations using our patented gyro laser technology and upgrading or overhauling parts.

      With our wide-ranging skill-set and global manufacturing facilities, we have the capabilities to provide urgent support and prevent common symptoms from becoming major problems.

      Major issues

      A major shipping incident could be a fire, flooding, collision or grounding and can happen at any time. In the event of a major shipping incident, Wärtsilä Shaft Line Repair Services brings ship owners and operators in urgent need of support a wealth of expertise in a matter of hours.
