Kodiak, Alaska — Kodiak Marine Engines Inc. announced it has opened a marine repair facility at the Port of Kodiak.

The company, which has been operating a Kodiak-based engine maintenance and salvage shop since 2014, said it plans to start operating its new Kodiak Engine Repair and Salvage Station at the port this month.

The Kodiak engine repair and Salvure Station will be a temporary facility for the company, and it will be open for business at the end of this month, said Scott Brown, a vice president with the Kodiak Corporation.

It will have a full service facility for maintenance and repairs of Kodiaks engines and fuel tanks.

The company’s fleet of engines and tanks are the most sophisticated in the nation, with a fleet of more than 50,000 engines, according to the company.

Kodiak’s fleet also includes some of the world’s most advanced engines, such as the Rolls-Royce Phantom II.

Brown said the Kodiaks engine maintenance facilities are also equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, which will allow the company to quickly diagnose problems with the engines.

Kodiak Engine Restoration and Salvaging Services, LLC, has operated its engine maintenance facility since 2014.

It is based at the Kodiac National Shipbuilding Plant, about 70 miles south of Kodiac, Alaska.

The facility is equipped with a diesel-electric propulsion system that powers Kodiak ships, and a diesel propulsion system for oil and gas drilling.

Brown said the company has received no formal requests from the federal government to operate a Kodiaks Engine Repair & Salvage Facility.

The Kodiak oil and natural gas drilling rig has been decommissioned, and the oil platform has been removed, but the Kodiakers current oil and coal drilling rig remains operational, he said.

Kai’s Oil and Gas Operations said in a statement that the Kodiaking fleet is in a state of disrepair and the Kodiakin fleet is being maintained in a manner that allows Kodiak Oil & Gas to continue operating in a safe and sustainable manner.
