Cruise liner custom cylinder head machining / preventative maintenance

By October 10, 2017News

In collaboration with major marine and industrial engine houses Halliday Engineering was recently contracted to undertake machining works and preventative maintenance on several large cylinder heads, offloaded from a visiting cruise liner.

Requiring much forward planning and working to critical deadlines, the Halliday Engineering team consisted of procurement and logistics specialists, expert machinists, fitters and marine engineers.

 Works involved:

  • Secure offloading and transportation of cylinder heads
  • Project collaboration with third parties
  • Precision re-machining of the head seats for the air start, injector and main valves
  • Custom machining for corroded welsh plug upgrades
  • Pre and post works technical assessment and client reports

Machining of these cylinder heads was completed on time and on budget, to the satisfaction of all involved.
