Paul Hoban, Marine Account Manager at Finning UK & Ireland, said: “Engines are one of the most important expenses of any vessel and choosing a high-performing solution that is built to last is essential. Informed by decades of diesel engine innovation and expertise, the Finning marine team will be on hand to discuss the best solutions for vessel owners and operators.”
Also present at the event will be members of the Finning engineering team, providing insights into how servicing and maintenance schedules can ensure optimal performance of engines, including detailed explanations of overhaul options available to extend the life of an engine and offer a more sustainable and cost-effective solution.
Paul added: “Ensuring a vessel is equipped with a durable and dependable engine is key to ensuring operations run seamlessly. This needs to be backed up by efficient servicing and maintenance to ensure it works as expected and any issues are dealt with promptly.
“Visitors will also be able to find out how service solutions can protect their investment by ensuring optimal performance through reducing inefficiencies, and how important the use of genuine Cat parts is in protecting long-term performance – this includes the use of remanufactured parts to support cost savings and sustainability.”
