We are proud to announce the most recent installation of our TCVJ model 2C-15 into a Royal Navy patrol boat based in Southampton UK.
The project has been undertaken by Babcock International Group for the refit of a number of Royal Navy patrol boats. The existing engines are being replaced and, due to the new sized power plants, the current universal jointed cardan shafts are unable to operate at the high shaft angles without significant vibration. Babcock International selected the TCVJ coupling due to its ability to operate at high shaft angles with minimal vibration.
This installation has been in the planning since 2018 and in August 2019 the first shipment of 2 driveshafts was dispatched for sea trials. Depending the outcome further orders are likely for more TCVJ couplings to replace existing universal jointed cardan shafts.
