Conversion of Z-drives for Keere Marine

Egyptian company Keere Marine transports goods on the Nile on behalf of UNHCR. Often on very low water, which always caused a lot of blows to the propeller and other damage to the mechanical propellers that they used until recently.

Keere bought a second vessel, which we fitted with Hydraulic rudder propellers. These thrusters proved capable of withstanding the extreme conditions. Reason enough to convert another ship that also always sustains a lot of damage with two conventional drive units to hydraulic thrusters.

“With our mechanical propellers, at any given moment more often than not we were carrying out repairs rather than actually sailing. Practice has taught us that DWG is the right partner to supply the rudder propellers that can cope under these tough conditions.” Geoff Ellis, Keere Marine
