Finning offers exclusive parts deal

Finning UK & Ireland will be showcasing its latest high-performance Cat engines at Seawork International 2018, plus offering attendees the chance to take advantage of an exclusive discount on Cat parts.

Visitors to Finning’s stand will have the opportunity to view the new Cat C7.1 marine propulsion engine, as well as the well-established C18.

The new C7.1 engine uses a common rail fuel system and advanced electronic control for optimum combustion and reduced noise levels. Superior reliability is maintained through the engine’s gear-driven jacket water pump and sea water pump, and its self-priming fuel system ensures the C7.1 starts smoothly and with no visible smoke. The engine also contains a closed crankcase ventilation system for improved engine room cleanliness, as well as a maintenance-free valve train with hydraulic valve lash adjustment.

Meanwhile the C18 propulsion engine, commonly used throughout the commercial marine sector, is available in a wide range of Marine Society classifications. It offers advanced combustion technology to help optimise fuel consumption, while meeting required emissions standards without aftertreatment. Its enhanced fuel injector system utilises crank timing and A4 ECM technology for even greater performance, while its separate-circuit fresh water aftercooling system and industry-leading power reserve provides assured reliability.

Finning will also be exhibiting its remote monitoring technology, which enables engine performance to be tracked and optimised, and issues diagnosed and quickly resolved. Providing valuable system efficiency data in real-time, the technology remotely monitors a range of essential parameters, including: total fuel used (by shift/day/week/month), average fuel burn rate, oil pressure, coolant temperature, engine load, intake manifold temperature, speed, heading and many other factors.

Gordon Dalrymple, Marine Sales Manager at Finning, said: “We offer a wealth of experience to the commercial marine and workboat market, and Seawork International offers a vital platform to share our latest propulsion solutions with this audience. For those looking for a reliable, efficient engine, our C7.1 and C18 technologies provide the ideal solution.

“We are also encouraging those in the industry to be mindful about the benefits of remote monitoring. This can help operators to make smarter and more informed decisions, while limiting downtime and improving the total cost of ownership for a vessel’s equipment.

“Finally, because investing in genuine spares is so critical to guaranteeing the long-term performance of an engine, we are offering an exclusive deal on all Cat parts ordered at the show. Even slight differences in tolerance and fit can contribute to inefficiencies in areas such as fuel and oil consumption, and even lead to premature wear, so we are encouraging attendees to take advantage of this fantastic offer.”

Finning works with boat builders, owners and fleet superintendants, offering a range of Cat, MaK and EMD marine propulsion solutions, auxiliary engines and packaged generator sets for the workboat sector.
