Our stations

Our customers have access to the industry’s largest global network of ISO9001: 2008 approved service stations, each equipped with state of the art test equipment and operating in accordance with IACS, UR, Z17 approvals and governance. This ensures that a consistent service standard is achieved during a variety of services.

Our people

Vessels are serviced by experienced WSS multi-brand service technicians, all of whom have been trained through the Wilhelmsen Service Academy and various OEM centres, where focus is concentrated on the servicing and maintenance of marine firefighting systems and the requirements of IMO, SOLAS and the FSS Code. This unrivalled training and approval programme ensures the highest global standards.

Our history

We have the experience of working with a vast range of multibrand safety systems and equipment, built up over almost four decades as a market leader in the fire and safety service sector.

Every 20 minutes, a Wilhelmsen service technician begins work on a new ship and we complete more than 21,000 services annually on all makes and models of fire and safety systems and equipment.

Our commitment

We are committed to providing the highest ethical and technical standards of safety service and expertise to our global customer base and we work to ensure that our customers’ vessels and crew remain compliant and safe at all times.

Our offer

Our global governance standards and local port coverage enable us to provide flexible solutions tailored to suit a range of requirements – from single vessel services to full fleet management. We work across ports internationally, saving our customers’ time and money, through harmonisation of due dates and allowing them peace of mind.

Our service tools

Whilst it is imperative to have the best tools for the job onboard, we understand the importance of the best IT tools onshore too. Every service that we complete is recorded in our unique safety management system which is used for safety service planning and the recording of a vessel’s technical details, service intervals, due dates, service history, regulations and certificates.

Our service agreements

Many of our current safety service customers can enjoy the benefits and flexibility of our unique Safety Service 360 agreements.

The benefits include a predictable pricing schedule and a dedicated technical service coordinator who monitors vessel due dates and schedules servicing to take place in the most convenient ports.

Customers are also given access to Navigate, a unique online portal which allows direct access to upcoming due dates, realtime service information and technical equipment details as well as the ability to print past and present service certificates.
