On Exchange Engine Parts Concept

by | Nov 23, 2021 | INSIGHT

All operators of engine-driven machinery appreciate the importance of uptime. The engines driving the propellers, alternators, pumps, etc., on a vessel or a power plant are serving their purpose only when they are working on a 24/7 basis or are instantly available to do so.

On Exchange Engine Parts Concept

All operators of engine-driven machinery appreciate the importance of uptime. The engines driving the propellers, alternators, pumps, etc., on a vessel or a power plant are serving their purpose only when they are working on a 24/7 basis or are instantly available to do so.
“In our expertise, the most usual reason for downtime, and thus unavailability of an engine, is the engine’s maintenance period.”

Risks of common engine maintenance practices

Usually, engine parts are dismantled from the engine and land at a mechanical workshop ashore. Then, the same spare parts are refitted when their overhaul and reconditioning are complete.

The downside is that the process above lasts from a couple of weeks and up to 4 or more weeks. Of course, many factors, like unforeseen reconditioning works, lack of parts availability, etc., can contribute to a prolonged maintenance period.
The bottom line is: your engine is down.

Risks of common engine maintenance practices

  • In the case of a propulsion engine, the vessel cannot sail at all, costing operators time and money.
  • In the case of a Genset on-board, the vessel’s operation is seriously impaired and limited.
  • In an engine driving process machinery, a whole production line can stay out of operation until the engine is up again.
  • In the case of gensets running in powerplants providing power to communities, uptime is critical and the consequences of prolonged downtime go beyond the financials.
All of the above underlines the importance of minimizing the engine’s maintenance period. Therefore, it is crucial for engine end-users to implement alternative and flexible maintenance strategies to protect revenue and income.

How it works

By using service exchange components, you exploit a well-tested straightforward, and effective way to reduce maintenance downtime by at least 50%.
On exchange

Allow us to break the procedure down for you.

In simple terms, our company sends to the vessel or power plant reconditioned, tested, and ready-to-use parts before the engine overhaul begins and are fitted on the engine immediately.

Then, after being removed from the engine, the old spare parts are returned to our workshop facilities. Components are reconditioned, tested, placed in stock, and made available for the next customer on zero notice.

Benefits of the On-Exchange Engine Parts agreement

  • Significant reduction of the maintenance period.
  • Fixed costs, budgeting made easy.
  • Immediate availability of parts inspected and tested thoroughly.
  • Participation in the circular economy by giving old parts a new life!
  • Reduction of risk and uncertainty for the duration of an overhaul.
  • Reduced costs from the minimum need of expert staff onboard / on-site.
Note that at Injegov, we have invested heavily since the late 1990s in maintaining a large stock of new and reconditioned parts for both two-stroke and four-stroke engines.

List of spare parts immediately available right from our stock

Two-stroke engine components

  • Cylinder heads
  • Piston crowns and skirts
  • Piston Rods
  • Exhaust Valves
