Eurotex International Ltd has supplied a further two Paxman 16YJCAZ Generators to the Indian Navy to be used in the drydocking and re-engining of the aircraft carrier INS VIRAAT. This means that all four Paxman generators on board the vessel have been supplied by Eurotex.
The engines were built under the stringent quality control procedures incorporated within the ISO 9001 – 2000 programme, which was recently updated by Lloyds. After being built, the engines were tested and approved by Lloyds and then witness tested to everyone’s satisfaction by the Indian Navy at Eurotex’s UK facility.
Both engines are now in transit to India to coincide with the drydocking of the vessel. Eurotex engineers will install and commission the units on the vessel during the first quarter of 2009.
This contract was completed for the Indian Navy on time and on budget, thereby further cementing the long tradition of close support and cooperation between the two organisations.
