SCHAAF - NEWS October 2010

In October 2010, SCHAAF received the order from Fincantieri to deliver GripLoc couplings for the connection of main drive traces of several ships.
In this case, they are Stealth patrol ships for the United Arab Emirates of 55m length and 8.6m width. The drive results from two separate drive traces. The motor performance is 2,700kW at 340 rpm for each motor and allows a velocity of 20 knots.

Different kinds of GripLoc couplings are realised by SCHAAF: GripLoc couplings with detachable Hydraulic Nuts for the connection of the shafts inside the interior of the ship, one of the couplings as a special design with an integrated flange. In addition, there are two exterior couplings in SCHAAF standard design. Thus, SCHAAF received another non-commercial order from the sensitive navy sector.
