Philly Shipyard is taking one of its suppliers to court because of issues with parts ordered for a Matson boxship project that has been beleaguered with problems.

The Oslo-listed shipyard wants to recoup $1.2m from Thordon Bearings who supplied bronze liners for a propeller shaft for the 2019-built, 3,600-teu Kaimana Hila.

Philly accused Thordon of breach of contract after the Canadian firm failed to supervise its sub-contractor Precision Roll Grinders (PRG), which is a non-party to the lawsuit.

The shipbuilder said PRG distorted the part, leading to a 23-day delay and additional costs.

The Kaimana Hila and the 3,600-teu Daniel K Inouye were both money losers for Philly and the company has now concentrated on US government contract work, recently winning a $1.2bn contract to build four training vessels for US state maritime academies.
