Eurotex, in conjunction with its operating partner Viking Inc of Louisiana, has supplied a further 11 ‘18000 hour’ major overhaul kits for the 16RP200M Paxman Valenta engines operated by the US Navy. This consignment follows on from the eight specially designed kits that were supplied earlier this year for the US Coastguard.
The kits have given both services great support in the operation their equipment and have met all requirements of the very tight overhaul schedules that are involved in each case. This level of support has meant that a total of almost 130,000 individual components have been supplied in accordance with the very strict and exact packaging and preservation requirements of both services. Most of the supplies are already in operation with the respective fleets.
