Parker, Ferrous-Wear-Meter
Mike Macnamara of Lincoln Diesels, who is based in Thailand covering Malaysia and the Philippines, and Alvin Poon of Simplex-Turbulo, who is based in our office in Singapore, have both reported strong sales of our Parker Ferrous Wear Meter over the last six months. Alvin says that operators are keen to maintain business continuity in these difficult times and Parker condition monitoring products are in high demand: “Since last December, we have so far supplied
Original hardback copy of 'One hundred years of good company'
A recent exchange of emails between Jamie Elkington (whose grandfather, John Rowley, was a former engineer at Ruston engines) and Lincoln Diesels’ April Baker, was brought to our attention recently. At the time of Jamie’s enquiry, John, 90, was losing the fight with coronavirus and sadly died later that day. Jamie was hoping to trace old Ruston colleagues who were contemporaries of his grandfather. Unfortunately, due to John’s sudden death, staff at Lincoln Diesels were
Gali air starters
Simplex-Turbulo is the stockist and agent for Gali, a Spanish company that was formed nearly 70 years ago. We currently supply six models of Gali air starter and each type is renowned for its robustness, low air consumption and high-speed.

Thank you from the Fletcher Group

Simplex-Turbulo, platform-supply-vessel
Simplex-Turbulo has recently received an appreciative thank you from the Fletcher Group, for an urgent late evening sales request that was dealt with immediately by Rita Semaka from our sales team. The order was completed and then shipped the following day: a testament to the commitment of our staff, to maintaining excellent customer service during this period of uncertainty and limited resources. The Fletcher Group is a relatively young, privately-owned group of companies, which started
Dorman L145BP
1958 Dorman L145BP generator is the “strongest ever built” according to Zimbabwean business owner of Harare-based Veldemeers Exquisite Belgian Chocolate. It is not very often that Dorman Diesels receives enquiries from Zimbabwean-Belgian fine chocolate manufacturers. A recent email from a business owner requesting a water pump for a 1958 Dorman L145BP was particularly interesting. Veldemeers Exquisite Belgian Chocolate was founded in 1997 (initially under the name of Chocolart), and for the first time in the
Ruston & Hornsby
As 2019 was drawing to a close, Lincoln Diesels came to the rescue to help a stricken South African farmer and his seized Ruston and Hornsby 6YDA engine. Although it was originally built in 1959, this 6YDA is a critical power source in the production of animal feed on his farm. He explains the situation in his recent enquiry to Lincoln Diesels: I am writing in desperation from South Africa. I am a farmer in
With focus and innovation, the maritime industry is systematically addressing its impact on long-term environmental concerns, with much change taking place in the next decade. Regulations are expanding out into the open sea amid lower sulphur emissions and tighter controls on wastewater management. With this in mind, can operators with older vessels continue to be compliant, and enjoy the benefits of new technologies that reduce the pollutants associated with shipping? One such technology is water
Wärtsilä
On a recent ferry crossing from Livorno to Olbia in Sardinia, I was interested to discover that our vessel (the MS Cruise Ausonia) is powered by a series of four Wärtsilä 46 12V46C diesel engines. It seems appropriate that this fast, modern vessel, should be powered by one of the most technologically advanced marine engines on the market. The crossing took me across the Tyrrhenian Sea which is ring-fenced by Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and Italy.
IMPA London 2019
With IMPA London 2019 only a stone’s throw from the hive of activity taking place around Whitehall surrounding Brexit, it is impossible to ignore the future of an industry that by its very nature is reliant on cross-border trade and operations. With a large attendance of European delegates, the mood at IMPA London 2019 was perhaps different to previous years. However, visitor numbers were high and there was still a sense of momentum and optimism.
