    Wärtsilä alignment and measuring services
    Wärtsilä Alignment and measurement services offer advanced solutions for aligning all types of rotating and nonrotating equipment. The services cover the entire scope of works, from measurements, calculations and reporting to proposing and carrying out corrective actions. All work is done using class-approved methodology.

    Alignment control of the propeller shaft is done using Wärtsilä´s patented gyro laser technology. The technology enables fast and accurate measurement of the bending line, allowing the detection of any vertical or horizontal misalignment. Used in combination with a jack-up system, it allows the engineer to compare the measured bending curve with the actual load in the bearings. With the necessary tools in place, realignment of shaft lines can be carried out in a couple of hours.

    Wärtsilä Oil to water conversions
    Converting to sea water lubrication can be considered for multiple reasons: to eliminate accidental oil pollution risk, to comply with environmental legislation (Marpol Annex 1), or to reduce complexity – no lube oil, no lube oil testing. Furthermore, the conversion eliminates need to repair shaft seal following cable or rope entanglement. Direct monetary benefits can be gained also by avoiding fines and risk of vessel being impounded in case of accidental sterntube oil loss.

    A conversion can be the right choice for any size of vessel from super yacht to cruise vessel.

    Wärtsilä Underwater services
    Equipment failures are never planned and typically come when least expected. By carrying out critical repairs to stern tube seals and other equipment while the vessel remains in service, operations can continue uninterrupted and the ship’s performance is undisturbed. In addition to emergency repairs performed underwater, Wärtsilä’s services can also be extended to include routine maintenance. The majority of scheduled overhauls of stern seals can be performed without dry docking, which reduces both maintenance costs and downtime, and minimizes the impact on vessel schedules.

    Wärtsilä offers tailored and managed solutions for underwater repairs and maintenance to stern tube seals and bearings. The range of solutions includes planning, equipment supply, repair supervision, providing OEM assurances, and dedicated project management.
