Starting 1975, Sandfirden Technics represents Valmet, later on Sisu and nowadays named Agco Power as exclusive distributor for the Netherlands. Sandfirden Technics sells, services and warrants these diesel- and gas engines worldwide and produces also high quality OceanLine generating sets for the Marine market using high quality durable products. Sandfirden Technics recently supplied the 3000th Agco Power engine to one of its most loyal customers.
This engine, a 74-DTAG common rail diesel engine produces appr. 150 kWm and is part of a complete gensets package, which will be used in four 5000MPV Newbuilding vessels for Briese Group. The owner, which has his roots in Germany, selected together with the electrical company Eekels and the shipyard the best and most efficient combination of generator sets to achieve lowest fuel consumption and optimum heat recovery. Before shipment to Zhejiang Zengzhou Shipbuilding Co Ltd in China, all generator sets have been tested extensively at the modern test facility of Sandfirden Technics under supervision of Bureau Veritas and the owner.
Part of this celebration is the delivery of a spare part package, free of charge, which Mr. Erik de Wit handed over to Mr. Jan de Looff to celebrate this memorable occasion.
