Complete set of stern tubes, bearings and seals

Briese Shipping BV has a clear vision on shipbuilding, goes for solid products and strives to reduce the total costs of ownership. How to reach this? Proven products that offer the right endurance and monitoring functions. This is one of the reasons why Briese Shipping BV choses a complete set of Lagersmit bearings, seals and the Supreme Ventus air type system. It is an easily overlooked matter but using a perfectly attuned set of stern tubes, bearings and seals ensures:

  • A complete delivery of perfectly compatible parts
  • One single contact point
  • Easy installation

They chose to complete the package with the Supreme Ventus system because it can monitor several vital functions of the seal and stern tube system. The importancy is obvious: operational feedback prevents surprises and ensures a stable performance of the system. Through the Supreme Ventus system, Briese Shipping BV ensures 24/7 feedback on:

  • Bearing clearance
  • Temperatures
  • Oil or water leakage drains into the vessel

"We have excellent experience working together with Lagersmit in our latest new building projects. Especially the dedicated support, technical knowledge and durable sealing solutions contributed to the success of the new building projects."

VGP compliance

An additional reason for Briese Shipping BV to choose Supreme Ventus is because it’s a simple way to comply with the VGP regulations. The Supreme Ventus ensures zero emissions of oil because it eliminates the oil-to-water interface with an air barrier and drains leakages safely into an internal drain tank. This makes the system suitable for use with mineral oil even in VGP controlled waters. After the completed successful new build projects, the joint teams looked into several retrofit opportunities where existing systems were upgraded or refitted to Supreme Ventus.

"We are very happy with the cooperation with Briese Shipping BV, especially how our teams worked together to achieve the right solutions on paper and in practice. The team of Briese Shipping BV kept us sharp throughout the projects which also challenges our team to keep improving ourselves."
