One of South America’s leading push boat operators is on its way to completing a fleet-wide retrofit to Thordon’s water lubricated tailshaft and rudder bearings.
In 2014, Argentinian owner Atria Logistics UABL, which operates a fleet of workboats on the Paraná River, installed Thordon’s RiverTough tailshaft bearings to its first push boat, the 135-foot-long Concepcion. In 2020, six more vessels in the company’s 26-strong fleet were converted.
Egnard Bernal, Thordon Bearing’s Business Development Manager, Marine, LATAM said, “Atria Logistics’ decision to continue the conversion process is based on the success of its first installation back in 2014.
