Stern tube seal maintenance in Yalova

Sterntube seal maintenance carried out in Yalova, Istanbul

Simplex engineer Mike Heddon arrived at the Sefina ship yard in Yalova, Istanbul in February to perform scheduled maintenance work on the Und Berlik vessel.

 

The job required the seal casings and liners to be removed and sent to the workshop for corrective machine work.

 

The seal casings and liners were then fully overhauled before being refitted to the vessel.
