58

CSSC Marine Service Co (CMS), the equipment service subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC), has completed the world’s first ever 36,000 running hours major maintenance on dual-fuel (DF) marine engines, reports LNG Industry.

Landmark marine engine overhaul

The overhaul was carried out by CMS Korea on the LNG tanker SK Audace at the Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering (MMHE) shipyard in June.

The SK Audace – which is owned by Total Gas & Power Chartering – operates with six WinGD X62DF twin engines. Having completed more than 36,000 operating hours, a major service was scheduled in accordance with class society and design specifications.

The full package maintenance project included condition-based and post-completion consulting. CMS is WinGD’s authorised service partner.

Excellent performance of WinGD

Yan Wei, the Vice President of CMS, commented: ‘The extensive service capabilities of CMS have again been emphasised with the successful completion of this landmark maintenance project.’

Not only was it the first 36,000 hour overhaul of a DF engine, but the spare parts supply had to be carried out under challenging lockdown circumstances because of Covid-19. Most importantly, the overhaul confirmed the excellent condition of the WinGD engines.’
