Project description

This respected ship owner decided to retrofit a sterntube seal system to an air seal in order to avoid using an ‘environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL)’ as defined in the USEPA VGP introduced in December 2013. The project necessitated the production and class approval of a 850mm forward and aft fully split seal arrangement and associated air seal components within 4 working weeks to meet the dry dock date. AtZ Marine worked with its partner AEGIR-Marine to produce the seal and sent their director of engineering to project manage the installation. The seal, air seal components and revised stlo pipework was installed and commissioned within 9 days.
