Metal stitching repair salvages badly damaged MaK 12M282 engine block

Connecting rod failure on offshore supply vessel’s MaK 12M282 generator

Goltens had been supporting this customer for years in the repair and maintenance of these engines and after inspection, was able to propose a repair to salvage the badly damaged block by metal stitching. Additionally, Goltens proposed to rebuild the entire engine in its workshop and install it onboard the offshore vessel when completed.

The repair was made easier by the fact that Goltens had access to a condemned block of the same model that it could cannibalize for replacement pieces to stitch into place.
