Eurotex International Ltd has expanded its portfolio of diesel engine support and aftercare to include MTU engines, in partnership with IBF FUTIAK GMBH of Oberhausen, Germany.
Based on a mutual support philosophy, the objective of the partnership is to provide navies around the world with a more comprehensive solution to their engine support programmes. Most navies have volumes of Paxman and MTU in their engine population.
One of the first projects successfully completed under the new arrangement was the rehabilitation of two 12V493 engines for the Chilean Navy, which is currently overhauling its vessels. The engines were successfully presented for tests that were attended by the customer. Their performance was witnessed and passed to everybody’s satisfaction, following which the engines were packed and prepared for dispatch, on schedule and to budget.
The partnership has several more projects under negotiation and developing, which will be reported on in the near future.
