A serious accident took place due to failure of cylinder liner resulting in to the damage of various parts including lower and upper engine block of Wartsila 18V32 engine. On investigation by RA Power Solutions technicians it was observed that upper and lower engine block suffered severe multiple cracks measuring to total 2900 mm in length and damage of casting into small pieces measuring 300 X 460 mm.
Various options were discussed and it was decided to replace the lower and upper crankcase.
