Diesel/Dual Fuel Engine Service
Mobile Field Service – Goltens capabilities as an expert in comprehensive engine services are unquestioned. With 8 decades as an engine specialist, Goltens capabilities cover virtually all makes and models of larger bore 4 stroke engines found in the power generation market. Goltens deploys highly trained teams to the power plant to effect the overhaul or engine repair anywhere your plant is located in the world.
Component Overhaul – Goltens teams can mobilize with all of the tools and special equipment required to overhaul the engine components on site. Alternately, Goltens can overhaul components in its fully equipped workshops and return the components to site to be installed during overhaul, limiting the on-site attendance.
Major Casualties – Beyond routine maintenance, Goltens is known for its ability to restore engines from catastrophic casualties. Crankshaft, block and bedplate replacements are routine repair operations for Goltens and are done in the safest, most professional manner in the market. Through our global network of stations and suppliers, Goltens is very often able to offer fully inspected, reconditioned components at a significantly lower price than the cost of a new and usually faster than can be delivered from the OEM.
Goltens was the first company in the world to successfully complete the in-place machining of a damaged crankshaft in the early 1950’s and is globally renowned for its capability. Since then, Goltens has perfected its crankshaft machining tooling and expanded the range of machining services it provides to the world’s fleet. Examples of machining solutions provided include:
As powerplants age, various engine related control modules become less reliable and obsoleted by their makers, so disrupting uptime. Often these control modules are also from different suppliers and when they fail, support is not always available and so can cause delays and be expensive. Goltens are specialist in designing fully integrated upgrades for all control modules including engine automation, governors, gas admission systems, safety systems, power management, excitation and generator protection. By standardizing on control modules from our principles we are able to reduce the number of modules, minimize suppliers and improve integration. An upgrade not only improves reliability and diagnostics tools, but often improves plant operator control through automation, so maximizing output and efficiency.
We can provide any of the below system upgrades or fuel conversions as turn key solutions:
- Mechanical and Electronic Governor systems
- Gas Admission, Wastegate and By-Pass valves
- Ignition, Real Time Combustion Monitoring with Detonation/Misfire detection systems
- Engine Control, Monitoring and Alarm Systems
- Engine Safety Systems
- Power management, Generator Protection and Excitation Systems
