We are happy to announce that SPM Instrument and SPM Marine & Offshore recently received the ABS certificate of service recognition for condition monitoring.

The Recognized ABS specialist certificate is granted to SPM Instrument AB, Sweden and its Dutch subsidiary SPM Instrument B.V. / SPM Marine & Offshore B.V., dedicated to addressing the condition monitoring needs of the global marine and offshore industry. The certification is applicable to condition monitoring and diagnostics of all types of machinery onboard ships and mobile offshore units.

The incentive for implementing condition monitoring is the introduction of flexibility in the inspection cycle, which has a direct impact on profitability. For many shipping and offshore companies, a class certificate is becoming a requirement when searching for a dependable condition monitoring supplier. Cooperating with an Approved Service Supplier can significantly reduce inspection requirements enforced by class. A well implemented and consistent condition monitoring program enables safe extension of the interval between overhauls and minimizes the number of periodic opening-up inspections.

The availability of performance data which can establish the working history and reliability of individual machines is beneficial to both operators and classification societies. Improved equipment reliability, extended inspection intervals and higher fleet availability all contribute to reducing total cost of ownership.

SPM Instrument provides effective condition monitoring solutions for all types of rotating equipment typically found onboard drilling rigs, heavy lift crane, pipelay, platform supply and seagoing vessels. The product line includes high-performance portable instruments and online systems for shock pulse and vibration as well as oil condition monitoring. Instrumentation is available also for Ex environments. The SPM service portfolio covers the entire process; from planning, turnkey installation and commissioning to global service, support and training. SPM condition monitoring solutions provide earliest possible warning of machine problems, giving crew and classification societies the information needed to make informed, confident decisions on operations and maintenance.

We are looking forward to step onboard and assist you to make condition monitoring a profitable part of our maintenance strategy.
