 Six reconditioned Wärtsilä connecting rods from the vessel ‘Nava Sheva’ were delivered after being reconditioned to the exacting standards that STDMG demands.

They will have undergone crack detection using dye penetration and ‘magnetic particle testing’ or MPT, before having their alignment, straightness and ovality checked.

The small end bush is replaced along with the con rod bolts, to ensure that the running hours of these parts are re-set to zero – something that Simplex-Turbulo insists upon to ensure their high standards are met.

Finally, the connecting rods are given an inspection by the external classification society DNV and stamped with their mark before being packed individually for delivery.
