Metalock Brasil working around South and Central America

During one week in early April Metalock Brasil carried out repairs simultaneously on three vessels in three different countries in South and Central America.

On an oil tanker, moored in Cristóbal, Panama, a Metalock cold stitching technician inspected an auxiliary engine to prepare for the subsequent metal stitching of the engine block.

On a passenger vessel, moored in Uruguay, Metalock Brasil team in-situ machined the intermediate propulsion shaft in the region of the bearing seat. Following the machining the Metalock Brasil technicians adjusted the bearings, ready for final assembly.

On a container vessel, moored in Colombia, a further in-situ machining team attended to complete rectifying an auxiliary engine crankpin, that had started in Brazil.

A true example of Metalock Brasil’s versatility to meet its customers’ demands, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
