The successful conclusion of the official sea trial of the mts Slot Dover is a fact. The brand-new inshore tanker with a length of 110 and a beam of 11,45 metres is now ready for operational use. The vessels joins a fleet of no less than 148 ships, and will be used by GEFO Gas for the transport of liquid gasses.
ADS van STIGT service technician Jan Vink was present for commissioning, sea trial and finetuning of the installation. For this tanker we supplied a Masson W12000C (coaxial) reversing gear.
With this coaxial reversing gear the input and output shafts are in the same plane, providing a meaningful reduction in installation height.
The reversing gear is fitted with a PTO for the steering pump and installed behind an ABC stage V certified engine.
On behalf of the complete ADS van STIGT team we thank GEFO for the trust placed in us, and Den Breejen Shipyard, responsible for the outfitting, and ABC for the pleasant cooperation.
Also we wish the Slot Dover and all who sail on her many happy and safe voyages.
