We operate both a comprehensive Planned Maintenance System and Preventive
Maintenance programme on board all vessels. As a result the number of mechanical and other
failures has been reduced to well below the industry average and scheduled dry-dockings are
both shorter and less intensive with a consequential further reduction of vessel running
costs and off-hire periods.
Wherever practicable all maintenance is carried out on board by the ships' own crews. However,
the available work force is reinforced, as necessary, by experienced ship repair teams.
This practice has been proven to be cost effective whilst ensuring that all vessels
remain at all times in a fully operational condition.
