Huge environmental savings

Remanufacturing, reconditioning, LCA, SDG, ESG, IMPA ACT, circular economy – the list of green concepts is long. But at PJ Diesel they have been working with circular solutions right from the beginning in 1979 – in 1979 their core competencies were “service and remanufacturing of critical engine components”, and it still is. In close cooperation with manufacturing companies such as Kompressoren Bau Bannewitz (KBB), Mitsubishi MET and Woodward the focus over the years has been to create a significant gain for the shipping companies, not only from a financial perspective but also from an environmental perspective.

“During the qualifications process we have been working on quantifying the environmental saving from our circular solutions as well. The numbers show savings of up to 92% – savings that the shipping companies will benefit from when choosing circular solutions” says Anne-Mette Elsborg, CEO, PJ Diesel Engineering A/S

The future looks bright and green

The pursuit to have a positive impact on society and to build sustainable solutions for future generations is a vison that the Italian classification society and PJ Diesel Engineering A/S share.

“A repair procedures approval is a difficult and thorough process that requires a complete audit and evaluation of all internal workflows and procedures. As a company you need to be persistent when it comes to ‘making the impossible possible’ if you truly want to enable sustainable solutions for future generations. When we grant approvals, we are just as happy as the company receiving the approval” says Dario Vincenzo Barbaro from RINA.

The approval is valid for 5 years and requires re-approval. PJ Diesel Engineering A/S expect an increase in demand as a result of the approval from RINA.
