Capability, Competence & Compliance - Lifetime Solutions

Built to last

New-building processes can be both challenging and time-consuming, especially in today's context. From brainstorming an idea to the actual ship design, from the first cutting of the steel plates to the delivery of a new ship, there are thousands of decisions to be made daily.

With limited time, every party involved is working round the clock to make sure things are happening according to the timeline, regardless of whether you are a superintendent, procurement manager or technical manager at the shipyard.




Getting it right from the beginning

  • Limited time and resources

    Ensuring a successful delivery with limited time and resources often means working around the clock. This is a common challenge for every party involved – from shipowners, to designers, classification societies, shipyards, and suppliers.

  • Staying compliant

    Complying with international regulations (SOLAS, Marpol and OCIMF), flag state, class and government agency requirements (documentations, certifications, reports) and obtaining OEM approvals are essential to the newbuilding process.

  • Protecting the assets

    Equipping your vessel with a strategic selection of products that support future daily operations will reduce the risk of off-hire and minimizes negative impact to business. Access to sustainable and always-compliant products is key to future-proof your vessels to meet new challenges and goals.

Factors to consider before deciding the specifications

How do you ensure that the equipment and solutions that you select are compliant, available and meet international regulations and standards?
