highly respected reputation for expertise in the field of engine and engine
equipment failure analysis has arisen from many years of advising on cases
of system failure and correct system specification which is recognised by
lawyers, Insurers, engine marinisers, equipment manufactures, commercial and
private boat owners and navigation authorities.
the smallest amount of failed engine part and some background information,
it can often prove possible to determine the likely events leading up to and
the likely cause of an engine or system failure. This forensic pathology
type of approach to engine failure can involve a combination of on site
examination or the receipt of failed components by post and carrier. With
the advances in communications and data transfer it is now possible, in some
cases, to carry out basic and preliminary examination with the aid of images

authority to develop a cost effective and acceptable solution to the
contentious issue of a requirement to fit metallic spill rails to all diesel
marine engines. The simple solution which was developed by our research has
been accepted by not only the navigation authorities but was also welcomed
by the fuel injection industry and the European authorities concerned.

with regard to issues of engine failure and are frequently called upon to
conduct engine testing on a test brake dynamometer to assess quality and
delivered horsepower. This work extends to new, used, repaired and
reconditioned engines. Such consultancy of this type has included advising
and assisting in the development of a new range of modern small and medium
range marine propulsion engines and generators for one of Britain's oldest
and well established marine engine manufacturers and marinisers.
