All major class societies have seen the significant advantages of condition-based maintenance (CBM) and, in fact, recommend this maintenance strategy as the most effective.

The class approves the CBM implementation and ensures the organization and Condition Monitoring Service provider work according to the strategy. The class will also approve CBM on individual machines, which can be implemented in a step-by-step process.

Documented condition information based on trends can show that the machine can continue to operate, and flexible maintenance activities can be planned to optimize resources.

Fewer open equipment inspections result in fewer breakdowns and a reduction of spare part consumption.

SPM Marine & Offshore understands the difficulties for owners and operators to implement and maintain a condition monitoring strategy. Since December 2014, we hold the DNV approval, which allows us to assist in this process as a AoSS Class recognized condition monitoring service provider.

In April 2015, we received the ABS Certificate of Service Recognition in Condition Monitoring and, in November 2015, the Lloyd's Register approval.

Working with us is a guarantee for our customers in Marine and Offshore to achieve their goals to move from their maintenance strategy from time-based into condition-based and consequently reduce costs and improve equipment reliability.
