Shaft power measurement and sealing UK 272 “Adriaantje”

After months of preparations, UK 272 “Adriaantje” has been added to the Dutch fishing fleet. UK 272 is an otter trawler that previously carried the British flag. To comply with Dutch legislation, the shaft power had to be tested against the vessel’s licensed power output, and settings had to be sealed. Because this is the only MaK M20 engine in the fleet, a new sealing plan had to be developed. RDA Shiptech provided the power measurement, sealing and sealing plan in close co-operation with the owner and crew and all relevant authorities.
