Why purchase new liners when there is a more cost-efficient and sustainable option? Correct and regular monitoring & maintenance of cylinder liners significantly cuts the costs associated with liner wear and is a much more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative. Proper maintenance can extend the lifetime of liners with as much as 20 years.
Following the introduction of the low-S legislation, many shipping companies are facing huge challenges with the condition of their cylinder liners. They report increased liner wear and piston ring wear, which of course is of concern when it comes to liner life expectancy. In addition, the Covid-19 virus has had a severe impact on movement of people and goods worldwide. Getting access to engine maintenance experts and equipment when needed has proven very difficult for many companies.
