At the Jaldhaka Stage-1 Hydropower Station, Thordon's GSS team completed the bearing conversion of the 10MW Francis turbine to convert a failed oil lubricated turbine guide bearing to Thordon’s water lubricated SXL bearing solution.

Fortum’s 10MW hydropower plant at Vassinkoski, Sweden, is now successfully operating with Thordon Bearings’ polymer SXL turbine guide bearing following the completion of the plant’s extensive renovation and recommissioning work.

Aside from the obvious environmental advantages, the Thordon solution provides for a longer operating life and, due to the unique tapered keyset design, optimises in-service maintenance since the SXL polymer can be removed without having to split the bearing’s metal housing.

Keep your crew safe and dramatically reduce your maintenance costs and by eliminating the need to grease your deck machinery with ThorPlas-Blue – it is the ideal replacement for bronze bushings in your deck equipment! The lubricants have been engineered into the material itself and will last for the life of the bearing, this ensures consistent performance and smooth operation.

Thordon Bearings has completed a range of water-lubricated and grease-free bearing installations to a third salt lugger in the Salinor/Navenor fleet, following the successful retrofitting of bearings to problematic newbuilds.

The salt carrier Nossa Sra. das Das Vitorias was retrofitted with Thordon’s SXL propeller shaft bearings after just three weeks of operation, while sistership Dona Zita was retrofitted with RiverTough shaft bearings and hardened steel liners in 2016. Based on the success of the Thordon installations, Navenor approached Thortech to supply a complete shaft and rudder bearing and seal package for the newbuild shallow draught bulker Comandante Paschoal.

Are your tailshaft seal maintenance costs high? Have you thought about the TG100 from Thordon and its Safe-Return-to-Port feature?

The TG100 seal should require no periodic maintenance and a well maintained seal should require no parts within a 5-year drydock interval. TG100 is manufactured for a long wear life and will reduce your maintenance costs. The unique Safe-Return-to-Port seal allows you to return safely to the nearest port if your primary seal is ever damaged.

It’s a fact! Workboats that operate with RiverTough tailshaft bearings are more reliable – they operate longer, require less maintenance and fewer drydockings. This means less money spent and more money earned!
