Offshore vessel support
CIP materials are ideal for many applications on offshore support vessels. Stern tube and rudder bearings made with CIP Composite materials are ideal for replacing rubber lined, wood products and bronze. On deck applications, such as a-frames, stern rollers and launch and recovery ROV’s benefit from using CIP materials where high loads and slow rotation or oscillation are anticipated. CIP Composite bearings eliminate the need for lubrication systems. For more information on specific applications in the marine offshore vessel support see our Marine section.
