Consulting

FHG Marine Engineering will travel to your vessel to give a free consultation. We can also provide you with a maintenance schedule to help prevent work loss time on your vessel.

Diesel Engine Overhauls

FHG Marine Engineering knows that waiting for your engine to fail can lead to costly overhauls and shipyard periods usually resulting in the hull being cut open to remove the old engine block. Preventative maintenance and scheduled hourly overhauls are the key to reliability and lower maintenance costs over time. We specialize in “in-frame” overhauls completed right on the boat. We replace wear components (bearings, piston rings, cylinder liners, etc.), hydrostatically test and clean coolers, overhaul cylinder heads, injectors, and do a complete inspection of all other components.

Surveys

Upon request FHG Marine Engineering can complete engine surveys to establish the current condition of the engine. If you are a potential buyer, seller or just want to know if your engine is due for an overhaul, we can help you out. This inspection includes, but is not limited to:

  • Removing the fuel injectors for a cylinder bore inspection of the piston crowns and cylinder liners.
  • Axial thrust measurement on the turbocharger shaft.
  • Exhaust temperature readings on each cylinder to calculate the load on each cylinder.
  • Fluid analysis for the coolant and crankcase oil, to show if there is excessive wear, bearing failure, contamination, in addition to other factors that show the engine’s health.

Preventative Maintenance

With years of experience on inter-continental ships, we understand the need to keep equipment running. Preventive maintenance is the key to a heathy, reliable, engine that you can trust. All machinery has a life-span and running your engine until failure will shorten this life-span. FHG Marine Engineering takes a pro-active approach to maintenance in order prevent costly repairs:

  • Fluids and filters are changed at the manufacturer recommended intervals.
  • Injectors tested and overhauled as needed or hourly to ensure proper atomization for clean combustion.
  • Coolers are kept clean to maximize heat transfer thus eliminating overheating that causes failures.
  • Oil is sampled at regular intervals to overall health of the engine (we check for fuel dilution, water, wear elements, trace elements, soot, oxidation, and sulfation, which can all lead to premature engine failure).
  • Coolant is sampled at regular intervals to ensure corrosion levels are safe, percent glycol, freeze point, oil presence, PH balance, and other factors that contribute to coolant life.
