The ‘Pride of Bilbao’ is a car ferry that operates between the UK and Spain and is operated by P&O Ferries.

We were recently asked to complete some repair work on the ‘Pride of Bilbao’ as the P&O engineers had identified that the camshaft pocket face on the ferry’s main engine had become fretted. This fretting had then caused a deviation in the straightness of the camshaft.

The engine itself was a Pielstick 12PC2.6 2V400 and the main focus of our inspection was the amount of deviation in the face in relation to the housing bores.

Once we’d identified the damage and worked out how much deviation had occurred, we were then able to machine the faces using our precision on-site machining equipment to achieve the desired result.

Due to us finding an on-site solution to the problem we were able to provide P&O with a very fast turnaround time and kept the ship’s downtime to an absolute minimum.

If you would like any more information about our on-site machining services please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Alternatively, why not take a look at some of our other machining case studies?
