Benefits of a fleetwide BWMS

When outsourcing the BWMS challenge of your complete fleet, a partnership with us brings potential savings and benefits:

  • Single supplier ironing out and reducing the design and integration process across your fleet. Time and resources are saved on procurement, surveying, installation & commissioning.
  • Savings on spare parts, thanks to commonality across the fleet. Master service agreements reduce downtime.
  • Our extensive global availability of services minimise any potential downtime risks.
  • With our technical assessment of your vessels' BWMS, recommendations can be made on what to consider during the installation and operation. (e.g. potential equipment locations, installation paths, electrical cabinet locations).
