Today’s article continues our series profiling MarineDiesel’s various services.
Engine Installation and Commissioning
MarineDiesel understands that when we sell an engine, we often need to be the ones who install and commission that engine. Most commercial shipyards are perfectly competent to install an engine, yet, particularly on new projects, factory installation is desirable. It is also important to note that all MarineDiesel distributors are fully trained in engine installation and can perform these services locally.
One of the most critical tasks related to the reliability of the entire propulsion system is the installation of engine and drive system. This can be performed by the operator, boat builder or the local Marinediesel representative, but it can also be performed by Marinediesel factory engineers on site anywhere in the world.
MarineDiesel factory engineers provide first grade quality service, as well as reducing the risk of breakdowns and stoppages related to poor installation. It can also allow for time to train local technicians on installations, thus, for the future, enhancing the skill and know-how level of the operator’s or boat builder’s own staff.
A professional installation not only assures smooth operation, but it also reduces operational costs. In this context, prolonging engine life and maintaining operational efficiency are key objectives that are addressed by this program.
Marinediesel can also supply a full project management service, supported by expert personnel and by a global back-up service. All this is targeted at the goal of providing the operator with complete confidence that the engines will run efficiently with excellent long term service.
