You want to be able to rely on your engine at all times. Downtime is not an option. Preventive maintenance on Cat marine engines helps avoid that. A Pre-top contract is a package where all preventive maintenance procedures and additional costs are set in advance, giving you just that little bit of extra security. The service package was designed with the shipping industry in mind and is intended to manage your engines’ condition and extend their life span.
Given that not all situations are the same, a Pre-top contract is always a customised contract. The contract covers a number of inspections combined with additional maintenance services. These additional services include periodic inspections of lubricant, engine/propeller load, and combustion chambers (endoscopically), as well as inspection of flexible coupling, alignment, and alarm system testing and calibration.
The big benefit of a Pre-top contract as a preventive maintenance solution for your Cat engines is that it includes not only inspections but also additional maintenance services. There are no unpleasant surprises, you know up front exactly how much it will cost you. And the Pre-top contract is fully tailored to the check points from the official Loss Prevention Inspection (LPI), which is joint initiative of the shipping industry and insurers (IVR). If the engine ticks all these boxes, you will get an LPI certificate that will generally get you a discount on your insurance premium.
