Diesel Engine Repairs for the Marine and Power Generation industries

The Metalock Engineering Group have carried out successful diesel engine reconditioning and repair for over 70 years on all types of engines.

Endless running times to meet the ever-increasing demands for power means that engine availability is a critical requirement, however, there are times when things don’t always go to plan and even the best-maintained engines can break down and it is always at the most inconvenient time.

Onsite Diesel Engine Repair

Cracked or broken diesel engine bedplates and entablatures are routinely repaired by Metalock, often after a catastrophic failure and returned to full-service condition Class Approved in a very short time saving the need for costly replacement.

Onsite diesel engine repair can be carried out by Metalock at sea, alongside or in a drydock or a power generation plant. Anywhere, anytime.

We work directly for companies involved with power generation from land fill gas, Industrial power generation for paper mills, factories, petrochemical plants.

We work on offshore installations (production platforms or drilling rigs) as well as all types of marine vessels. Merchant and Naval - wherever the engine is located we can get there if required.
