Goltens overhauls engines on Jan De Nul dredger

Equipment & Technology // November 7, 2012

Goltens, the US-based global engine repair and retrofit company, has overhauled three engines from one of the world’s most powerful dredgers, Leonardo Da Vinci, which is owned by the Jan De Nul group.

The dredger, which has over 20,000KW of installed power, required a full overhaul and reconditioning of its three main engines.

The work was carried out at Al Duqm shipyard in Oman and was completed within a demanding schedule of three weeks.

The project was part of Goltens’ ongoing cooperation with Denis Diesel Services. The two companies work together on a number of projects, in particular those related to large diesel overhauls on dredgers. Most of this work takes place in the Middle East and South East Asia.

The engine components were transported from the shipyard in Oman to the Goltens workshop in Dubai.
