Stern-tube-bearing delivery planning for lower dry-dock fees
24 February 2023

Preparation for repairs of marine vessels often involves precise planning.

This is why Vesconite Bearings Netherlands has already decided on the date of despatch for a Vesconite Hilube stern tube bearing that will be delivered to Vigo, located in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula in Spain, in March.

The order for the bearing was made in early February for a maintenance programme due to start in mid-March, notes Vesconite Bearings Netherlands MD Conrad Penzhorn.

The bearing is in stock, and will be despatched on the 13th of March using DHL’s Express Delivery Service for delivery immediately before it is required, he says.

Penzhorn believes that Vesconite Bearings may have been selected as a preferred supplier of marine bearings for the marine maintenance project because of the company’s central location in Europe.

Vesconite Bearings Netherlands, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vesconite Bearings, is located in Utrecht, so stock bearings can be delivered within Europe within a day of being despatched from the facility.

‚ÄúVesconite Bearings BV is pleased to be supplying a customer in the biggest fishing port in the world,‚ÄĚ enthuses Penzhorn.

‚ÄúOur logistics preparation ensures that dry-dock fees are minimised and that repair yards receive their marine bearings when they are required,‚ÄĚ he says.
