Oslo/Vancouver – May 2021
Seaspan faced a problem with leakage/ water ingress on the bow thruster on a series of 8 14000 TEU sister vessels. This was naturally a big challenge to the operation of the vessels. The normal thing to do in this situation is to take the vessels out of service and dock for repair, which would have been very time consuming and expensive. After a meeting with LanoPro, it was agreed to test LanoPro Leak Stop. LanoPro Leak Stop is a high-end product that has proven to stop all kinds of leakages in thrusters, engines and hydraulic systems where oil is used and where gaskets, over time, can crack and start leaking.
We started out with one vessel and after 24 hours of service the crew confirmed that the water ingress to the oil had stopped. We are very happy that we could help Seaspan to solve this problem very cost efficiently and without need of docking.
