Chris-Marine & IOP Marine engine care equipment is approved & recommended by all leading engine designers in the world for medium and slow speed diesel engines.
We are regularly approached by ship owners experiencing failures with their engine maintenance machines onboard relatively new vessels. In many cases, the supplier was not specified when orders for newbuildings were placed.
When the manufacturers of engine care products are not clearly specified in the approved makers list, many shipyards supply the cheapest domestically manufactured equipment available. This does not only compromise reliability and safety but also hinders the process of locating suitable spare parts and getting quick and professional support. Early equipment malfunction results in prolonged down-time, delayed/slower external maintenance visits, shortened lifetime of engine components, as well as potential damage to other vital parts of the engine.
