SHI Improved the Technology of Installing Multi-Purpose Propeller

Samsung Heavy Industries' shipbuilding division located in the Koje Island is reducing building period and improving productivity and quality by making better method of installing multi-purpose propeller (named Azimuth Thruster) mainly built in special ships. Azimuth Thruster, which has the functions of fastening a ship lest it lose its balance due to a strong wind and rapidly changing its direction combined with the existing function as propeller, is installed mainly in shuttle tanker and drillship. The propeller for 100,000 DWT-shuttle tanker with the order by Norwegian Bergshav was installed at the block assembling stage as precedent process, and its preliminary operation was successfully finished on September 25. The installation work was once done at a dock or under water after ship hull production. As SHI completed the assembly stage installation, which could be equipped only in a space of 4 meters below ship hull, not only better working conditions, but also shortened dock-making period for about 10 days and improved quality can be achieved. Meanwhile, SHI has installed Azimuth Thruster in about 10 special ships since installing it in 103,000 DWT-shuttle tanker of Norwegian Statoil in late 1998 for the first time. Since then, SHI has shown off its cutting-edge technologies with acquiring 3 patents.
