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.
