Being trusted to maintain multi-million dollar assets providing the working platforms for executing some of the most challenging offshore engineering projects requires technical know-how, advanced cost management, logistics control, experienced personnel and dedication: all of which Anglo-Eastern deliver.
The vessel manager forms a vital element of any offshore project matrix and must be able to liaise with all parties to ensure the vessel is fully capable to perform when and where required. Therefore the manager is constantly planning, adapting and changing as the project evolves.
In the event that a vessel requires to be laid-up we will discuss options and locations that lead to the most cost-effective solution. We evaluate:
We take care of all the arrangements and preservation routines appropriate to the lay-up option, location and expected duration.
Ensuring reliable performance is essential to a vessels reputation. We understand the need to ensure the vessel is fully capable and does not suffer any downtime due to maintenance issues. Adherence to evolved maintenance schedules avoids breakdowns and compromised performance. Further, being capable of responding to damages in order to minimise downtime is all part of the planning and mitigation.
We provide support for all vessel certification and survey requirements. This includes pre-audit preparation, training, superintendent attendance, onshore support and follow-up action.
We have systems and procedures in place to reactivate a vessel from lay-up. The requirements will vary depending on the type and length of time the vessel has been in lay-up. We can provide a detailed report on activities, costs and timescale involved to reactivate an asset.
Our Group purchasing allows us to maximise discounted prices for consumables to the benefit of our clients. In addition, agreed OME spares are supplied at advantageous prices.
As an essential part of vessel operations, we place a high emphasis on maintaining a cost-effective inventory of spare parts and consumables. Our planned maintenance system enables real time updating both ashore and on board which increases the effectiveness of the system.
We provide a full crewing service covering all activities from recruitment to training for marine and project personnel. See our crewing section for further information.
We receive daily performance reports from the vessel which provide us with the necessary information to be able to monitor, report and verify fuel, lube oil consumption, other consumables, emissions and waste.
In addition to carrying out a number of on board inspections, internal audits and environmental audits over the course of the year, we also attend any major repairs, dockings and survey periods.
The varied experience and training of our personnel is well placed to offer business support to the various facets of vessel management. Our support can form part of a long term contract or on a project basis. We specialise in streamlining procedures and putting in place efficient work processes to support a business.
