The Adurni, a category 3 work boat, owned by Shoreham Port Authority has been operating out of Shoreham Port since its build by Delta Shipyard in 1984. The vessel provides vital towing and bed levelling services in the harbours and seas surrounding West Sussex along with offering both surveying and equipment deployment assignments.
The diversity of services offered by the Adurni means that reliability is key – keeping her at sea and at work, whilst providing smooth and reliable operations for Shoreham Port Authority. Choosing the Twin Disc MG514 marine gearbox at build ensured longevity of service for the hard working vessel, with over 32 years to date use from the originally installed gears. The reliability and engineering excellence of Twin Disc marine products allows our customers to be safe in the knowledge that they have only the best fitted on board their business.

The heavy demands placed on the marine gears and propulsion systems by constantly changing from ahead to astern when bed levelling, have been met with 100% reliability from the Twin Disk MG 514 units. It was an obvious choice to choose Twin Disc for our new vessel, the high level of reliability makes them ideally suited for the type of work to be undertaken.
