Stacked big ends, hanging engine blocks and hull cropping – typical view of a 4-stroke main engine crankshaft renewal.

Despite various attempts for saving the crankshaft, renewal of the same was considered inevitable on account of severe damages on one crankpin. Makers offered a crankshaft with a delivery time of 4 months.

As a result of this, our Shanghai Office attending on behalf of both H&M and LOH, immediately located a new crankshaft in China in order to mitigate the repair cost and time.

The crankshaft was dispatched to South Korea in a timely manner and repairs completed in the shortest possible time.
