Prior Diesel Volvo Penta Action Service Engineer Assists Piling Company

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

TAD1373VE - Volvo Penta Engine RepairOur 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.

Diesel Engine Repair on Demand

Friday, February 5th, 2016

diesel-engine-repairDiesel Engine repair doesn’t stop at holiday time!

Prior Diesel’s worldwide diesel engine repair and maintenance service was active over the Christmas and New Year holidays, proving that at Prior Diesel we really do offer service you can rely on 24/7.

On 30th December our customer reported engine failure on board their windfarm support vessel based in Germany, which needed to be up and running by New Year’s Day. Due to the holiday period their engine supplier was unable to provide assistance in time so they turned to Prior Diesel for help.

Appreciating the gravity of their situation we had no hesitation in offering them immediate assistance. We advised on repairs, ordered parts required and mobilised an engineer to travel to Germany on New Year’s Eve, with repairs carried out and completed on New Year’s Day.

Stuart Holland, Parts Manager at Prior Diesel commenting on the service said: “We understand the customers’ need for service 24/7 and we’re pleased that our actions resulted in reducing downtime for the vessel.”

At the end of it we had an extremely happy customer and a fully functioning vessel repaired in time to meet its charter commitments.
