Breaking in new ship

I noticed that new bulker icebreaker ,ARVIK 1,stopped mid way from Japan to Panama.Would this be for oil change,etc.If proper timing of maintenance was not done, could this effect seals and gaskets long term?Quebec cannot stop oil leaks on the new ferry F.A.Gauthier.They say the oil reacts with the seal material…

so what oil was used on the dyno for its IMO certification?

This information is not avalable to the public.

so the engine manufacturer doesn’t tell you what oil to run?

They do, but there still is a chemical reaction according to owner.I was just wondering if delayed maintenance on new engine could cause permanent damage to joints.

first funny of the day … re; oil change !!!
