The Bergen Engines Exchange Pool gives you access to a wide range of overhauled engine assemblies from 12 global centres, including the Bergen factory.
Limited time for scheduled dockings, less experienced engineering staff can mean there is often less time and on board resources available for engine maintenance or overhauls. Rolls-Royce developed the exchange pool as a time and labour saving alternative to conventional engine servicing.
Partial engine overhauls can be completed in a much shorter ‘window’ as they require fewer manhours to complete. Individual cylinder heads for example take around 12 hours to overhaul; using exchange units on a 9 cylinder engine overhaul will save around 100 manhours.
There is a lot of flexibility built into the programme as components do not have to be collected and dropped off at the same location.
For example, a vessel sailing from Singapore to the Gulf of Mexico can collect a set of cylinder heads from Singapore – have the work undertaken in transit – and the heads dropped off in Galveston on arrival. Advise your Rolls-Royce service centre of your requirements, or we will work with you to establish your best overhaul option.
Supply & fit – Exchange components can be provided on a supply and fit basis, making engine overhauls and maintenance quick and hassle-free.
As each component has its own price structure, costs that include labour can normally be fixed by the local Rolls-Royce centre, as long as the returned units are repairable. All exchange units carry a full warranty for additional peace of mind.
