Remanufactured Solutions

Exchange and save with our remanufacturing program.

For many MTU engines there’s no need to wait for an overhaul.

 

Instead, you can reduce downtime by simply replacing your existing equipment with a factory remanufactured unit and returning your original core for a credit based on its technical condition. With our no-hassle core acceptance policy, we provide the total costs and time to replace your product up front - preventing unplanned costs and delays. Swing engines are also available to keep you working if extended service requires your engine to be removed.

Lower acquisition costs

Restoring and reusing equipment saves energy, resources and other costs associated with producing new products. These savings are passed on to you.

Lower operation costs

Used MTU equipment is fully restored during the reman and overhaul process according to strict factory standards, resulting in optimal equipment performance and fuel/oil consumption.

Lower maintenance costs

Model-related updates made during the reman and overhaul process lengthen equipment and component life compared to used equipment.

Environmental Benefits

By restoring end-of-life products rather than discarding them, the need for raw materials and energy to produce new parts is minimized, significantly reducing waste and CO2 emissions. This efficient use of resources and energy benefits the environment. Often, the process can be repeated multiple times, greatly extending the life span of these non-renewable products.
Remanufacturing Process
Core Exchange Process
  • Remanufacturing Process
  • Core Exchange Process

Disassembly and Cleaning

  • Complete engine disassembly
  • Paint and rust removed from all parts and components

Investigation

  • On-site lab analysis of fluids and materials
  • Measurement, inspection and evaluation of all parts against factory-specified tolerance and wear limits
  • Performance of crack testing (on relevant parts)
  • Identification and execution of modernization requirements
  • Documentation of results and findings (optional, upon request)

Reworking

  • Performance of reworking and machining using series production processes to achieve like-new tolerance requirements
  • Reman supplier components - such as crankshafts, coolers, heat exchanger inserts and couplings - conducted in partnership with original manufacturers and/or certified, audited sub-suppliers to ensure maximum quality

Reassembly

  • Initiation of assembly processes using remanufactured/rebuilt parts and components and new wear parts (gaskets, seals, bolts, screws, etc.)
  • Utilization of most up-to-date tools, specification documents and layout drawings for series production
  • Adherence to inspection plans developed in agreement with quality management, including documentation of key dimensions (dimensions sheets, templates, push-on dimensions) throughout the assembly process
  • Completion and documentation of order-specific requirements
  • Implementation of design and model related updates and upgrades (if applicable)

Acceptance Testing

  • Test run using specified, order-specific peripheral settings to replicate difficult field conditions (e.g., extreme temperatures)
  • Documentation of engine values, evaluation and provision of plausibility assessment according to dispatch documentation
  • Customer/classification society participation (optional)

Final Preparations

  • Priming and painting
  • Packing/preservation (commercial/seaworthy/long-term packaging rows if additional steps are required)

Built for Uptime and Efficiency

For many MTU engines there’s no need to wait for an overhaul.

The core exchange program is simple:

1. Core Deposit
Purchase a remanufactured unit from your local MTU service partner and pay the core deposit

2. MTU Service Partner
Your original core is returned to the collection center by your local MTU service partner for a core acceptance check

3. Technical Condition
You receive core credit based on your core’s technical condition

4. Remanufacture
Accepted cores are sent to regional MTU reman centers, where the remanufacturing process takes place. The process includes disassembly and cleaning, investigation, reworking, reassembly, acceptance testing and final preparations

5. Delivery
Factory remanufactured engines are delivered to MTU service partners and made available for purchase
