Important new protocols

Over the last few months, we’ve seen many things change for businesses and the way they operate. And talking to operators and other engine support companies, there have been various reactions to protect against the spread of Covid-19. For example, when our engineers have been travelling to offshore platforms, they are going up a day early to be tested and quarantined until it is confirmed they are not carrying the virus. For our marine...

Tooling Solution

Tooling Solution

Following on from last week’s post about the damage caused by incorrect tooling, I thought it would be good to share one way of overcoming this type of problem. We’re currently in the process of overhauling some large conrods, but when we came to replace the small end bushes, the tool wasn’t available from the vessel or even the OEM. Thanks to our experience in major overhauls, our Senior Machinist was able to design and manufacture this tool...

We called it our Diesel Engine Uptime Programme (DEUP). Essentially, the DEUP is a...

Focus on the future

Focus on the future

This week I’m in Hamburg, at the largest European marine expo, SMM. Many big engine manufacturers are exhibiting, but for me, there’s one striking thing missing on most stands, showing a consistent trend affecting all operators. Previously, there’ve been lots of shiny new engines on show. Not this time. It seems like most manufacturers are using the expo to showcase different types of technology. The Rolls Royce/MTU stand is a good...

UK Trade Mission, Lessons from Brazil

UK Trade Mission, Lessons from Brazil

Last week, I was part of a UK Trade Mission in Brazil, in temperatures up to 40°C.   And as I write this, I’m in distinctly damp, colder, Essex.   Oh well!   I was in Rio, and as part of the UK trade mission, reviewed some opportunities for engine support for this expanding market.   As you’d expect, there were plenty of presentations and meetings, lots of people to see and business cards swapped.   But in amongst it...
