MaK Machinefabriek Bolier

Bolier is the official representative of MaK engines in the BeNeLux and the Netherlands Antilles. The subsidiary in Marseille, Moteurs Marine Méditerranée, is the official MaK representative for France and French-speaking countries of North Africa.

With experience since 1949, Bolier has become a global solutions provider in the field of both MaK propulsion and services, as well as Cat Propulsion, EMD and Napier. Approximately 50 professional technicians follow our customers worldwide or work in Dordrecht at the largest specialized MaK workshop of North-West Europe.

Classification society Germanischer Lloyd (GL) has rated Bolier with the highest quality level (Platinum) according to the Marine Service Assessment of Caterpillar.

Engines

Bolier is the official MaK dealer in the Benelux and therefore solely offers MaK engines. The MaK engine is delivered in combination with a KBB or Napier turbine. Next to that, we offer a package deal including the MaK engine, turbines and a Berg Propulsion installation.

 

Propulsion engines

Our product range of MaK engines are medium-speed marine engines with power varying between 1.020 kW to 16.800 kW. The engines can be applied in a wide range of marine vessels: dry cargo ships, tankers, container feeders, dredgers, offshore support ships, fishing ships, short sea ships,  ferries and cruise ships. Bolier also offers MaK Dual Fuel or LNG engines which make your ship ready for the future and any emission requirements. All MaK engines are suitable for propulsion and generating electricity, also known as generators.

 

Generators

Besides propulsion engines, MaK also has generators in its product range. These MaK generators can be used in ships but also in power plants to generate power. MaK’s generator sets have a long lifespan which ensure quality and certainty.

When choosing MaK, you select a reliable product of high quality. Bolier is known as a trustworthy and experienced partner.

Besides this, you can count on excellent service after your engine has been delivered. Bolier does not only supply (used) parts, but also carries out repairs and maintenance operations on your MaK engine. Bolier’s engineers have years of experience which makes their work efficient and reliable. This way your downtime is minimised as much as possible during maintenance and/or repair of your MaK engine.

 

Regulations focusing on Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

MaK’s SCR system is developed to meet the future IMO-lll requirements. Installing and using the SCR system is a sustainable solution to decrease NOx emissions. With this, the MaK engines preserve their typical characteristics such as efficiency and trustworthiness. The MaK SCR system is a solution for decreasing NOx emissions and consists of SCR chamber, mixing tube, urea injection system and dosing cabinet.

What are the benefits of the SCR system?

  • One-stop IMO Tier lll solution.
  • Complete marine certification society solution
  • Common control and monitoring of engine and SCR System resulting in high user friendliness
  • Corresponding maintenance schedules of SCR System and engine

 

Regulations focusing on DF engines (Dual-Fuel)

Dual Fuel: this is an engine with a fuel system where natural gas or bio gas is added in a diesel engine. MaK’s Dual Fuel engines have the same power as the diesel engines, meaning they have the same load. As a result they can be used in the same familiar way for each application. The main difference? The DF engines are more sustainable and meet, without any additional systems, the highest IMO norms due to their decreased NOx and CO2 emissions.

 

Packages

Bolier also offers total packages for the complete propulsion system aboard: MaK engine(s) in combination with Cat generator sets and a Berg Propulsion installation. This way you are only involved with one party for the entire propulsion system and this way the scope can be aligned easily.

 

MaK maintenance

Are you not interested in a new engine, but do you want to carry out maintenance or have maintenance be carried out by Bolier? This is possible You can dock in the harbour in Dordrecht, but our engineers can also come to you for all types of maintenance. Besides that you can order parts separately at Bolier after which you can perform maintenance on your engine yourself.

 

MaK Gensets

MaK generator sets are reliable, stable and maintenance friendly, and they have been approved by the main marine classification societies. The generator sets built by MaK use AEM (electric) motors. Of course, other makes can also be used at the customer’s request. Each generator set has a compact structure, so that it can be fitted easily in the engine room.

 

The MaK generator sets are available in 50 or 60 Hertz configurations. Each set meets the requirements of the most important marine classification societies (such as DNV and Lloyd’s).

Emission solutions

Low Emission Engine (LEE)
From as early as 2000, emission reduction has been an important pillar in MaK’s development strategy. This has been formalised in the Low Emission Engine (LEE). The technologies developed within this concept aim to optimise the combustion process, whereby the emission of NOx, CO2 and soot is drastically reduced.

Dual Fuel
MaK is also responding to the increased demand for running on LNG. In 2014 the first MaK Dual Fuel engine will be available: the M 46 DF. This engine can run on both gaseous and liquid fuels. It is also possible to convert the existing M 43 C into a Dual Fuel version.
