How we can help you with your Paxman engines...

Andy working on a Paxman Engine

Specialist independent Paxman expertise for all your engine servicing, overhauls and support.

If you own a Paxman engine, or you support someone who does, tap into our 50+ years of specialist experience to reduce your headaches and help keep your engine running smoothly.

Paxman history

Bartech was formed on supporting Paxman 12YJ and 6YJ engines, of which we have years of technical experience, supported by manuals, technical information and over 25,000 different stock items available from our stores.

We currently support oil companies offshore, supplying and maintaining Paxman 12YJ engines to the highest possible level.

Paxman specialists

At Bartech, we understand how good Paxman diesel engines can be; after all, Gerald Barnett created Bartech with the primary purpose of supporting them back in 1987.

Having worked with these engines since beginning his apprenticeship at Paxman in 1965, he has accumulated a wealth of experience.

Heritage engine support

We also appreciate the operational problems you can face resulting from undocumented design changes, engine variations and limited spares availability.

These issues particularly affect the older RPH, YJ (Ventura), YH and Y3J (Valenta, RP200) Paxman engines.

Time served engineers

Our chief engineer Andy has a rich history in the world of Paxman having worked there in the 1970s and 1980s before joining our team.

There’s a good chance that Andy actually built your engine in the first place!
