Regular Maintenance

The notion that “prevention is better than cure” lies at the heart of any maintenance programme. Regular maintenance may be categorized into the following terms:

  • Preventative maintenance utilizing regular inspection packages bespoke to the customer’s planned outage periods and the holding of strategic stock of parts.
  • Predictive maintenance utilizing specific maintenance based on regular inspections and assessments of equipment condition and replacement material requirements.
  • Life-cycle maintenance utilizing maintained stock of parts and exchange of strategic parts.
