China is continuing to develop as an important player in the marine market and an increasing number of service companies specialising in engines and turbochargers are becoming evident. With facilities in both Shanghai and Hong Kong, Marine Partner offers both experience and depth of knowledge about engines, compressors, turbochargers and a wide range of other shipboard equipment.
With a primary focus on turbochargers and engines, however, the company offers key services for marine and industrial operators in the China region and beyond. The company sees reliability as the most important service factor and operates with professional and qualified staff, on-call 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
In support of turbochargers, Marine Partner operates a specific repair team covering the whole of China and able to carry out overhauls either on board vessels or at fully-equipped workshops. Rotor repairs and refurbishments can be undertaken, including reblading and replacing turbine stage damping wire.
Comprehensive spare part stocks are maintained, both for immediate dispatch to operators and to support overhauls and repairs work carried out in the company’s workshops. Examples include parts suitable for ABB VTR, VTC, TPL and TPS products and MAN NR, NA and TCA turbochargers. The company also holds components for the Mitsubishi MET and IHI RU and RH turbocharger ranges.
Marine Partner can overhaul and repair both small and large turbochargers. Following dismantling and cleaning, components are inspected and fully assessed for condition. Worn or damaged components are replaced and the complete rotor is dynamically rebalanced in the workshop. Equipment is available for measuring wall thickness to assess any degradation of the casing and pressure testing can also be carried out to ensure integrity and gas tightness. Air filter silencers can also be reconditioned.
The company’s offerings for diesel engines are equally comprehensive. With parts in stock for engine suppliers including MAN, Sulzer, Mitsubishi and MaK, Marine Partner can recondition and repair many major engine components.
