Thordon Bearings joins the World Ocean Council
Thordon Bearings, designer and manufacturer of non-polluting marine bearing solutions for ships, including cruise vessels, has joined the World Ocean Council.

Canadian company Thordon's non-metallic propeller shaft bearings are lubricated with seawater, not oil, completely eliminating the use of oil - helping ship owners meet current and future global pollution regulations.

Craig Carter, director of marketing and customer service at Thordon Bearings, stated, ‘Ensuring ocean industries are addressing their marine environmental impacts and contributing to clean seas requires a global approach for a global ocean. Thordon Bearings is pleased to become a member of the World Ocean Council.'

Carter added, 'this unique international industry alliance creates the opportunity for Thordon and other innovators to work with leadership companies from other sectors to tackle the shared sustainability challenges affecting the future of the ocean and of business operations.’
