RELIABILITY AT SEA

The marine industry is facing challenging times. Operators are under constant pressure to increase reliability while reducing operating costs. If you are responsible for maintenance on board, you will understand how tough it is to run a tight ship while keeping your critical equipment performing at its best. An unexpected failure on a critical piece of equipment is simply not an option. Unfortunately, in unpredictable conditions and harsh environments, machinery damage or breakdowns, such as engine failure – the most common cause of shipping incidents over the past decade – does happen. This can results in high penalty fees, costly repairs, and in some cases serious injury.

If your ship adopts a reactive maintenance strategy, i.e., repairing after a failure, then you will be expected to be trained and capable of managing multiple systems, products, and technologies. But with ship owners tightening the purse strings, the budget for maintenance and overhaul repair is often the first port of call when cutting costs. But how can you be expected to improve reliability while reducing maintenance costs?

DO YOU FACE THESE RELIABILITY CHALLENGES?

Many in the marine industry are adopting Predictive Maintenance (PdM) / Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) strategies to identify problems early to avoid unplanned downtime. If you face these types of challenges on your vessel, implementing CBM could be the answer.

  • Unable to maintain a consistent CBM programme across the fleet
  • Costly inspection requirements enforced by class
  • Existing CBM programme not delivering
  • High spare parts costs
  • Too many unplanned failures
  • High maintenance costs
  • Varying individual ship needs – no standardisation
  • Time-based maintenance procedures
  • Reactive culture – expectation of knowledge of multiple systems
  • High dry dock rotational plan repair costs
  • Excessive machinery or background noise causing complaint onboard
  • New build or recently dry docked vessel experiencing machinery or structural vibration or operational issues
