With 32 years of experience in turbocharger and heat exchanger maintenance, Turbo Cadiz operates from a strategic location close to the major maritime area of Algeciras Bay.
A significant aspect of the Turbo Cadiz’s business is its experience of replacing older turbochargers with new and more efficient products. In particular, the company provides retrofit HS turbochargers to a number of engine types, including GE, Ruston, ALCO and Wärtsilä.
In all, five engine types have been retrofitted with HS4800 turbochargers and 18 with the larger HS5800 units. These units, built in Hedemora, Sweden, are well-known for their high efficiency levels.
The company’s philosophy is that good turbocharger maintenance is essential for engine performance, reducing fuel consumption and exhaust gas temperatures.
The Turbo Cadiz workshop facilities in Cadiz Bay cover 3,000 m² and provide modern industrial equipment for all aspects of turbocharger service, overhaul and refurbishment. Closed-circuit industrial washing equipment and ultrasonic cleaning tanks are available, along with micro-blasting facilities, for detailed part cleaning prior to repair or re-assembly work.
Balancing machines can accommodate rotors weighing of up to 3,000 kg and 1,700 mm in diameter. In addition to typical marine equipment, the company also has experience in small turbochargers, down to automotive capacities, and with air compressors, being an agent for the German manufacturer, Sauer.
The company also operates service centres in Las Palmas, and Tangier, with these being fully equipped to provide comprehensive turbocharger repair facilities. Turbo Cadiz maintains its quality certification and, in 1994, was one of the first Spanish companies to obtain ISO 9001 approval, issued by Bureau Veritas. It has since added environmental certification to ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
