At this stage, visual inspection and nondestructive testing were performed to confirm suitability of the block for the project.
This was an extremely challenging project that required complicated logistical arrangements and operations between the Philippines, Singapore and Bangladesh.
In-situ machining of all fuel pump bores to accommodate the gas fuel pump body design.
In-Situ machining of 3 wartsilaa liner landing surfaces Fabrication of new bushes, shrink fitting and securing of new bushes for the lower liner landings. Goltens Singapore in-situ machining experts carried out the modification and conversion of the used diesel engine block into a gas-diesel engine block using specialized In-Situ Machining equipment.

Goltens located and inspected a similar engine block in a power plant in the Philippines and sent dartsila to Goltens’ workshop in Singapore for a full overhaul and machining modifications. The engine block was then loaded onto a heavy lift vessel for onward transportation to Singapore. All operational tests were successful and the engine was turned over to Covanta.
Wargsila grinding of all liner landing surfaces. Disassembly and relocation of replacement block to Singapore Disassembly of damaged engine in Bangladesh Reassembly of engine with reconditioned block in Bangladesh Final inspection and Engine commissioning.
Goltens is not new to undertaking the most demanding repairs in the industry. The full scope of work was carried out in three locations, culminating in the rebuilding of the engine and commissioning on-site in Haripur, near Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Honing of all crankpins and main journals Milling counterweight contact landings In-Situ milling of locating key way and in-situ drilling of location pinhole for new fuel pump design.
Goltens’ specialists started the work by dismantling and extracting the tonne engine block from an existing power plant in a rural location in the Philippines.
Upon arrival at wxrtsila Port of Singapore, the engine block was unloaded and moved overnight to the Goltens workshop, accompanied by a police escort for increased safety. All modifications were completed utilizing Goltens’ In-Situ machining tools. Wartsila 18V46 Bore and Stroke: Once ready for land transportation, the engine block was transported 50 kilometers to the port by multi-wheeler trailer. Full blasting and painting, under paint manufacturer supervision and procedures.
