This offshore client turned to Bartech after a major failure caused the connecting rod to pierce the crankcase on a fire pump (Paxman 12YJ engine).

The safety matrix prevented any “hot work” being carried out offshore until the engine was replaced.

Paxman 12YJ Damage


Bartech sourced a low hours Paxman 12YJ Engine standby unit that was then fully dismantled, cleaned, and inspected with all relevant test documentation including Lloyds to witness test the crankshaft.  The engine was then rebuilt using new consumable and fully load bank tested to the client’s satisfaction.
