A BUKH DV48 RME Service On A Polar Expedition Vessel

Bagsy the rights for this Christmas film plot.

An ordinary, unassuming, ex lifeboat with a BUKH DV48 RME engine, is having a very unusual refit in Benfleet. 

Ross went to carry out a full service and engine check on the vessel, but there was something incredibly exciting about this particular job.

This ice, ice, baby, is off to the North Pole on a polar expedition as part of the, ‘Dark Ice Project’. I know right!

Real life explorers in big coats and mittens with sledges and Cuppa Soup! 

Be still my beating heart.

Ross spoke to the intrepid explorer and offered basic maintenance procedures and engine awareness, as although French Marine Motors are happy to go anywhere in the known universe to help our customers out, The North Pole is, let’s face it, a bit of a schlep.

Unfortunately my thermals are in the wash and I’m all out of Pot Noodles, so I’ve written an extensive list for Santa and fingers crossed, the explorer might hand it to a passing elf.

I have been a very, very, very, good girl. Honest.
