Marine Engine Parts & Repair Program Launched by CAT

Press Release
Thursday, September 13, 2012

Caterpillar Marine Power Systems announces a new Repair and Exchange Parts (REParts) program with cost savings.

MaK REParts are original used parts rebuilt to the same quality standards as their original OEM parts. By employing state-of-the-art salvage techniques and quality control standards, MaK parts are returned to their original specifications, assuring same-as-new-performance and reliability. The technology for the remanufacturing standards are the same that are used on the Cat® Reman parts utilized in the Cat brand marine engines.

As a measure of their quality, these MaK REParts carry the same warranty as new MaK parts, underscoring Caterpillar Marine Power Systems’s commitment to its customers.

When marine engines require service, ship owners need options that return their vessels to operation quickly. MaK REParts provide a broad range of sustainable, in-stock parts solutions that can be ordered from MaK distributors worldwide to better meet the specific needs of the marine market.

CAT says their MaK REParts are easy to exchange and install, providing cost-effective repair options, enabling customers to minimize downtime and increase vessel availability.

In addition, Caterpillar Motoren GmbH & Co. KG maintains significant marine engine expertise and continues to invest in MaK components and engine overhaul capabilities such as Caterpillar’s unique piston rechroming process for MaK REParts to meet the growing service demands of the global marketplace.
