LUYT Den Oever & Harlingen

In addition to the main branch in Den Oever, LUYT also has a second branch in Harlingen focused on diesel engines. The warehouse is situated on the waterfront, at the harbour entrance. LUYT also offers an all-round service for Caterpillar propulsion systems, diesel engines and generator sets from this branch.

The diesel engine department has accumulated a tremendous amount of experience with the maintenance of ship engines.
