L&M Engineering (UK) Ltd of Lerwick
A family-run business at the northern-most tip of Scotland, roughly 100 miles off the north-east coast.
Established in 1982, L&M enjoys a strong reputation among trawler fleets, ferry operators and the other industrial sectors it serves as “always going the extra mile to provide a solution”, says director Steven Laurenson.
“We became involved with Cummins after handling a repower job on a local trawler which had experienced serious propulsion engine failure,” said Steven Laurenson. “We went with a QSK19 which has proved itself as a very capable and reliable unit. The largest Cummins engine we’ve worked on so far is a QSK60 propulsion engine in an oil supply vessel.”
Steven is more than happy to advocate Valvoline as the premium choice when it comes to lubricants.
“We do stock other brands, but we feel that the Cummins endorsement of Valvoline lubricants offers a clear guarantee of peak performance. Investing in the right oil offers many operational benefits, saving customers time and money in the long term.”
Marine Power Drechtsteden (MPD)
Valvoline Premium Blue plays an important role in MPD’s expanding business, as owner Dennis van Wijlen explains:
“I’ve been specifying the Valvoline product for 25 years. Quite simply, it’s the best CES-approved lubricant there is. Wherever we have come across a situation where a vessel has been showing high lubricating oil consumption, we have flushed and then replenished the engine with Premium Blue and there was instant improvement.
“We like to involve the customer with the decision process of switching to Valvoline Premium Blue. We always carry out an analysis of the existing lubricant and we set out the cost benefits of moving across: the increased service intervals; reduced consumption and longer operating life of the engine.”
