    ForSea Ferries Opens the Door for Thordon's ThorPlas-Blue Bearings

    Nov 12, 2020
    Thordon Bearings is to retrofit its grease-free ThorPlas-Blue bearings to ForSea Ferries’ Tycho Brahe, one of the world’s most environmentally friendly ships, at its next scheduled drydocking. The decision follows the success of the bearing installation to the bow doors of Aurora, the first of two high-intensity battery-operated ferries converted by Sweden’s Oresund Drydocks and delivered in 2016. It was the first ever installation of a Thordon self-lubricating bearing to the bow doors of a ro-ro ferry.
