Afloat rudder repairs in Zeebrugge, Dunkirk and Le Havre

Earlier this fall our teams carried out several rudder repairs on ships in Belgium and France. In all cases cracks were found that needed to be repaired to prevent them from spreading and causing further damage to the rudders.

We can perform repairs at anchorage on any type of rudder or while the vessel is berthed. In most cases this can be done without interrupting cargo operations. The case studies in a recent article on our website are good examples of this.

The cracks on these rudders were spotted during an underwater inspection before they caused problems for the ship. This once again shows the benefits of having regular inspections carried out by competent divers, followed by comprehensive and accurate reports. Our teams can detect any problem so that they can be corrected early and prevent the more costly repair which neglect and further damage would bring about.
