New rudder construction for RO-RO "TALOS"

Our technical office signed a contract for the design, the management and supervision of the construction of a new rudder with its stock for the Ro-Ro “TALOS”. The ship had lost her rudder with the lower two third of the rudder stock due to a cutting through diameter, while the new rudder already has been fitted successfully on the stern the quickest possible.

It was a unique experience for all of us the prosecution of the whole job, because the loss of rudder is not an often incident and the same the construction of a new one, especially for a big ship. And in our case when we say “rudder” we mean a spade rudder with one neck bearing of total weight exceeding 10 tones, outer dimensions 4,25x3,25 m and rudder stock diameter 450 mm.

Between the responsibilities of our technical office was the ascertainment of the reason for rudder shaft’s cutting in order preventing actions to be taken or corrective actions to be executed. The procedure, until a conclusion to be defined, has demanded the reading of many texts for incidents of this kind and very careful and continuous observation of remain part of the detached rudder stock.

The whole job comprised, apart from design and calculations, steel works, mechanical works and processing as well the construction of a significant weight and volume poured piece for the support of the rudder blade. The job was of significant interest with considerable details hidden in the construction and processing procedures. The reactions and finding of solutions against these details have created many and difficult concerns, but finally all of us we have gained a unique experience.

The use of this experience is in our hands to be used appropriately regarding as planning as design and constructional matters. We are sure that we don’t permit to be lost what we involved ourselves.

Following some photos of the rudder construction and fitting are presented.
