Turbocharger service general

The  KBB Turbocharger is a very important piece of equipment and a necessity to keep your engine running. This is why most shipowners tends to offer large amounts of money to buy new equipment once a breakdown occurs. 

The good news is that new is not necessarily best!

A turbocharger with a wear and damages can in most cases be repaired at a price up to 75% less than buying a new one. It can even improve life cycles compared to new components from the manufacturer – and with even better delivery times.

Availability and fast response are key to mutual success and at the same time we can offer to repair parts which often would be stated as non-repairable. Common problems can most likely be repaired in our workshop and along comes always a 24-month liability for defects and shortages.
