Stone Marine Services were delighted to visit the facilities of Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Kobe, Japan.

Ryan McIntyre Group Sales Director added.

“Kawasaki is a valued partner, and we are delighted to continue our association. Stone Marine has been a service partner for many years in Africa, providing thruster service on behalf of Kawasaki on the West Coast of Africa, the Middle East, and Turkey. I am pleased to confirm that our relationship now extends beyond Africa. At Kawasaki’s request, we will soon provide engineers to support customers throughout the UK and Europe from our service hub in Scotland.”

In 2021, Stone Marine Services signed a ‘service centre agreement‘ with KHI enabling the company to undertake service maintenance and overhauls in the UK and Europe.

Our relationship has developed over many years, and we are considered a technical authority in the repair and servicing of Kawasaki propulsion solutions. Our expertise spans the product line, including azimuth thrusters, swing-up types, retractable, underwater mounted, and mechapod units.
