Repair of damaged propeller on vessel ‘Collaroy’ – Balmain, NSW
Client: Harbour City Ferries
After an impact with a floating object one of the feathering propellers on the vessel ‘Collaroy’ was significantly bent out of position. The vessel is part of a passenger transport service in Sydney and therefore needed to be repaired ASAP. The prop cannot be removed while the vessel is in the water and would normally need to be placed in a dry dock. Diving Co was able to bend the prop back into place with the use of divers and hydraulic jacking equipment. Aside from being a much quicker option for the client the cost savings when compared to docking the vessel would have been significant.
