Notre process

Assistance request

They are always different first of all from where they are coming from and in purpose of course. The initial contact that leads to a technical assistance request is the fundamental stage allowing us to well define Customer’s objectives and to prepare the appropriate means to answer this request.

Arrival on site and contact with Local Reps

All plants are different: They have different operation modes, different running time different story and at the end different troubles. Whatever the knowledge of the person in charge from Alliance Diesel Refit, The arrival on site and the first contact with the Reps and the plants are fundamental. It can validate the first preparation already done or it obliges us to go on a completely different way.

Alliance Diesel Refit Specialists are skilled enough to face whatever situation and react accordingly to focus on main needs and provide appropriate answers.

Verifying malfunctions

We can consider a technical assistance required after damage, support during maintenance operation – Expertise always starts by verifying announcement and technical information collected at previous steps. This could be surprising for Chief Engineer but this is a key factor of our understanding. Our range is the plant even the troubles are concentrated on one engine. Expertise is a partnership so don’t be offended by our question and especially when we ask if engine has been restarted !

Identification of the root causes

It is not usual that troubles sustain on a single cause – most of the time unexpected situation either after damage or during maintenance are the results of multi sources combination.
The root cause tree is well names – what is visible is from the same extend than what is not and this is our commitment to inspect until we can conclude we have not missed a single possibility.

How to remedy ?

Alliance Diesel Refit must be a force of proposal based on the confirmed diagnostic. We consider this is a 2 levels immediate treatment of the problem by providing solution even they only partially or temporary solve troubles and longer terms program in order to definitively restore situation and prepare long terms operation.
First of all Alliance Diesel Refit works with its Customer in order to define:

  • The extension of the damages and their consequences supported by our risk analysis
  • What is the most appropriate repair solution
  • What is the impact financial and time duration
  • Existing temporary solution even with operation restrictions
  • What specific means could be required for this operation

Whereas usually repairers reach their limits Alliance Diesel Refit continues and considers that mechanisms understanding is the key factor thus Alliance Diesel Refit wants to be a proposal force to avoid repetition of the problems whatever their causes. This includes maintenance follow up, training, introduction of new operation rules – restoration of the normal operation rules and if required improvement of the engine integration conditions in the plant and its function.
