On-Site Large Bore Engine Repair and Maintenance
Goltens’ global presence and depth of resources allows it to mobilize engine teams specialized in large-bore engine repairs anywhere in the world to respond to any type of requirement.
Response and capability to mobilize the right tools and technicians are critical to operators. With offices strategically located in 14 countries and over 1,000 employees, Goltens’ engine capabilities are unmatched. As an independent service provider, we routinely work on any and all major makes of larger bore, 2-stroke and 4-stroke, propulsion, auxiliary, stationary power diesel, gas and dual fuel engines. Performing routine overhauls and troubleshooting and diagnosing diesel engine casualties is what we do every day. We also handle new installations and retrofits of engines.
Goltens supports customers with one off maintenance and repair requirements but also offers flexible, planned maintenance agreements. In these arrangements, Goltens works with end customers to define specifically what the scope and periodicity of the support will entail. Goltens can provide full turn-key project support where we supply all of the required spares and perform all maintenance required on the engine. We can also accommodate scenarios where the customer provides parts and components of the required service while Goltens delivers against a more tightly and well-defined scope.
From an efficiency perspective, Goltens has developed “swing set” maintenance programs with operators either with multiple engines of the same execution or those who cannot afford the downtime of component overhaul on site. In these cases, an extra set of major components that generally includes: Cylinder Heads, Fuel Pumps, fuel injectors, cylinder liners, Pistons is purchased for rotation across engines. Customers often also include turbochargers, governors and air coolers. Having a swing set allows component overhaul to be completed in the workshop on a non-rush basis allowing work to be done at a lower price. Also, having a fully overhauled set delivered to the engine eliminates inefficient, on-site overhaul and speeds up the overhaul.
