Telescopic masts emerge as a groundbreaking solution in the field of naval propulsion, particularly for sizable vessels like chemical tankers and construction ships. This article aims to delve into the design and application of these telescopic masts, focusing on a specific case intended for Germany.
Using Duplex steel has some advantages, which are essential in a few industries. One of them is definitely the shipping industry with the transport of corrosive respectively cryogen fluids. The high mechanical values, combined with the high corrosion resistance of duplex grades, allow significant weight savings, which are not only important for the resourcing market.
Propulsion systems for large ships and vessels use a telescopic mast, so the canvas can be blown by wind. This construction yearns for tailored hollow carbon steel sections.
Heaving the tender of a luxury yacht into water and putting it back onboard is not possible without an auxiliary device. A crane boom made of duplex stainless steel is needed.
