Field Services

Schelde Gears operates around the world, delivering services both on board vessels and at shore facilities. Extensive experience in the field ensures that our engineers are experts in applying analytical techniques to deliver practical solutions. Our main activities cover the repair, overhaul, inspection and failure analysis of marine propulsion gears. A total commitment to quality and class requirements lies at the core of everything we do.

Vibration and acoustic measurements can be coordinated and evaluated on all types of rotating equipment. With our experience in installing, commissioning and trials of marine propulsion gears, we also provide assistance during acceptance tests to a range of parties including ship owners, shipyards, gear makers and classification societies.

The services that we provide to our customers also include failure analysis, advice on, and the supervision of gear alignment, gear production, and acceptance testing with load tests or no-load tests. In addition, we can provide training for crews on the proper operation and routine inspection of gears.

In Vlissingen (the Netherlands), we have a well-equipped facility for the inspection and repair of gear parts. For new parts, we have several manufacturing partners who work according our high quality standards developed over many years of cooperation.
