Our Volvo Penta trained engineers have been on site in London again this week. A key client contacted us with urgent maintenance work needed on his Volvo Penta system. The engine had developed a water leak and was out of action. Our workshop co-ordinator discussed the ongoing problem with the end user and quickly discovered that the leak was coming from the water pump housing to cylinder block joint. Parts were ordered and our engineer mobilised to site the next morning.
After completing a site induction, the engineer inspected for leaks. The coolant was drained from the system and associated hoses and components were removed without causing any environmental contamination.
Once the water pump was removed, it was evident that the seal had become damaged and was the cause of the leak. Genuine Volvo Penta Parts were used to complete the repair, including Volvo VCS coolant.
Following completion of the repair the system was tested to ensure the fault was rectified.
Whilst on site, our engineer carried out a full system diagnostic check-up to ensure no faults were developing and also to check if any outstanding campaigns or upgrades were available.
Having completed the repair within 24 hours, our client was able to continue with his piling project and still meet his critical deadlines.
