Steering gear is amongst the most critical machinery on board a modern ship.
As an owner of a Porsgrunn rotary vane steering gear™ from Aker Solutions you have a good starting point. The rest is based on regular servicing and the availability of original spare parts.
Aker Solutions is your natural preferred partner for steering gear. In order to avoid off-hire, the original spare parts recommended by the supplier should be on hand aboard the ship at all times. For the rest, it is good to be assured that the other parts are available at any time. As a serious supplier, this is the policy we will continue in the future. Through our long experience in the market we have developed routines that ensure that original parts are supplied as quickly as possible. We work hard to meet our customers' needs, even when it comes to obtaining original spare parts that are no longer stocked.
In case of enquiries or questions about original spare parts please, if possible, have your spare part list and spare part numbers at hand.
