We support vessel owners and shipyards in a systematic, cost-effective recommissioning of laid-up vessels returning to operation. Depending on the length of the lay-up period, the asset may be required to undergo a full special survey to have its Class notation reinstated.
Our many years’ experience in dealing with Class requirements from the outset can reduce the amount of time and costfor the reactivation.
To ensure that this process runs smoothly,we pre-plan performance testing requirements.
Such requirements will vary depending on the condition of the machineries, regulatory compliance framework, in particular towardsits DP notation.
Examples of such requirements may include testing of power distribution systems and verification of position keeping capabilities and the Capability plot.
Vessel owners can benefit from our in-depth competence in achieving below:
- Reduced re-commissioning time and cost
- Improved quality and reliability of mission-critical system and components
- Compliance with insurance and charters requirement on recommissioning
