A team of GSE service engineers attended Condor Rapide whilst the vessel was taken from service during a short 3day maintenance period, alongside in Poole, Dorset.

The Vessel which is powered by four main engines; 20 Cylinder Ruston RK 270 Diesel engines and had been suffering from leaking cylinder liner O-rings over a period, due to fitment of inadequate liner sealing O-rings during an earlier engine overhaul.

During the 3 day period, GSE engineers removed 4 cylinder units from the Port Outer main engine. The original components; cylinder head, piston, connecting rods and cylinder liner were cleaned, examined and refitted with original OEM supplied parts.

Finally LE connecting rods bolts were re-stretched in-situ as per recommendation.

Following the rebuild, the engine completed no-load bearing trials, to verify assembly of overhauled cylinder units, prior to returning to operational service, running between the Channel Islands of Jersey, Guernsey and St Malo.
