In November 2017, our Reconditioning Centre in Shanghai carried out reconditioning of fourteen cylinder covers for a major European ship owner. These covers came from one of the world’s largest container ships, equipped with a 14-cylinder, 96-bore main engine.
All fourteen cylinder covers and all fourteen exhaust valves were reconditioned within a period of less than one month, while the vessel was undergoing steel work at a shipyard in Qingdao.
This was the third vessel out of a series of similar vessels for the same customer. QuantiServ carried out the reconditioning work for all these vessels.
