Many of the world’s largest and most successful offshore operators rely on TIG marine capabilities, response and precision delivery to keep their operations running uninterrupted.

Diesel/Dual Fuel Engine Service

Riding Crews – TIG marine capabilities as an expert in comprehensive engine services are unquestioned. With 8 decades as an engine specialist, TIG marine capabilities cover virtually all makes and models of larger bore 4 stroke and 2 stroke engines found in the marine market. TIG marine engine service model is based on deploying highly trained teams or riding crews to effect the engine repair either alongside or on voyage to minimize the impact on schedules. Our teams travel will all tools required to overhaul components onboard negating the requirement to send components ashore.

Swing Set Model – To maximize efficiency and minimize downtime associated with overhauls, TIG marine has implemented a “swing set” approach with certain operators. With this alternate approach to onboard overhaul, the owner secures an extra set of components that can be fully overhauled in TIG marine’ workshop between overhauls and delivered onboard for the next scheduled maintenance. This limits onboard attendance, shortens overhaul/downtime periods and controls costs.

Major Casualties – Beyond routine maintenance, TIG marine is known for its ability to restore engines from catastrophic casualties. Crankshaft, block and bedplate replacements are routine repair operations for TIG marine and are done in the safest, most professional manner in the market. Through our global network of stations and suppliers, TIG marine is very often able to offer fully inspected, class approved, reconditioned components at a significantly lower price than the cost of a new and usually faster than can be delivered from the OEM.
