M/V Frio Mar

The ship suffered a main engine crankshaft break down while crossing Atlantic and completed the sea passage setting canvas convers on the ship gears as sails. Interprogetti Genova, acting on behalf of the Hull and Machinery Underwriters, through suitable metallurgical investigations carried out at LR facilities in London (Croydon) demonstrated that the cause of damage was related to an incorrect repair work carried out on the main engine crankshaft few weeks before the occurrence.
