MarineDiesel Services Profile: Engine Installation and Commissioning

 

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.

COMMISSIONING

Our  fìeld  service  engineers  are  uniquely experienced   in commissioning engines,  and  will ensure  that  every aspect of their  performance is fully tested  and  optimized before handover. This includes auxiliary equipment such as transmissions  and drive systems in liaising with other suppliers when necessary to ensure that every part of the installation functions correctly. Commissioning can be performed by Marinediesel fìeld service  engineers  on  site  anywhere  in the world. The  commissioning sign-off is also required  for warranty to take effect.
