Slewing bearing in shipbuilding

Bearings are commonplace in the shipbuilding sector and play a crucial role, whether it be in ship cranes, rudder propellers, Davit cranes, pivoting gangways or winches. DV-B manufactures and delivers bearings for virtually all applications in this industry and we ensure that quality always remains at the forefront every single time.

In addition to our extensive internal protocols to ensure that we offer you products of the highest quality we also regularly undergo third party inspections. Whether you choose to have our products assessed through Bureau Veritas (BV), Det Norske Veritas – Germanischer Lloyd (DNV GL), American Bureau of Shipment (ABS), Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RMRS), Lloyd’s Register of Shipping (LR) or any other classification society, we are prepared to work with any partner.

Our bearings are specifically produced to withstand the strenuous and extreme conditions that are common at sea. Through a variety of specialized manufacturing steps, including surface coatings (multi-layered paint systems, zinc flame-sprayed coating, etc.) or sealings to protect the raceway system we ensure that DV-B slewing bearings are up to the task.
