With more than 100 years of experience in ship repair services, KIMI has become a strategic partner of the majority of the Greek shipping companies and many on a global level. The workshop combines solid technical skills with high manufacturing capabilities. Thus, our customers benefit from obtaining fast, tailored and of high quality solutions to their critical, unexpected breakdowns as well as from the in-house developed services that prolong their critical components lifetime.
KIMI’s wide service portfolio ranges from diesel engines to auxiliary and deck equipment maintenance and repair. Some of the most mainstream services carried out are: diesel engines overhaul, connecting rods repair, fuel pumps and injectors overhaul, pistons, exhaust valves and cylinders recondition, pumps and winches repairs.
Reverse engineering and remanufacturing have always been a key value proposition for KIMI. Starting with steam turbines repairs, the company’s R&D team continuously develops services, in- house, in order to prolong critical, high value components lifetime. In that direction, KIMI launched remanufacturing of a variety of fuel elements such as slide type fuel valves, non-return and suction valves and laser cladding services that restore the service life of heavily damaged crankshafts, turbocharger rotors, steam turbine rotors and other critical components.
Our technical department team combines OEM expertise to the practical experience and flexibility of mechanical and design engineers that have been working with KIMI for decades. All these years, we have accumulated deep knowledge and vast experience in trouble-shooting and the development of fast and flexible solutions in each case.
Our high manufacturing capabilities are a result of a series of heavy investments that have been made on machines and technologies. We acquire a wide CNC equipment range with the work piece capacity to process parts of 2.5m diameter and 10m length or to obtain machining tiny tolerance of 0.01mm.
Except from works carried out in the workshop, our ‘flying squad’ repair technicians are available to offer our services round-the-clock worldwide. Each travelling team is specialized in carrying out very specific services. Thus, there are different teams for engine overhauling, fuel pumps timing, steam turbines inspection and maintenance and in-situ crankshaft machining.
