Finning Sole Provider For U.K. Cutter Vessels
Overhaul completed on three of five vessels
Finning Power Systems has been selected as the sole service provider for the variety of engine makes and models that power the U.K. Border Force’s fleet of HM cutter vessels.
Finning was chosen by Babcock, which has a contract to provide through-life maintenance and support for the Border Force’s fleet of five patrol boats known as ‘cutters.’ Under the contract, each ship will undergo a docking period every two years and annual Life Saving Appliances (LSA) periods.
There will be support for engine types including Caterpillar, Perkins, Rolls- Royce, Yanmar and Lombardini. In addition, Babcock has outsourced the management and supply of spare parts to Finning.
Finning has already carried out the complete overhaul of the engines on three of the vessels.
