Global service provider. Exceptional local strengths.

Background:
 
A critical element of Aquatic’s offering is the high standards of maintenance our equipment receives at our bases around the world.
 
On top of that, our ability to complete refurbishment work quickly and cost-effectively saves valuable time and money, and ensures our unrivalled equipment range can be mobilised whenever – and wherever – it’s needed.
 
We’ve just demonstrated our ability to complete major refurbishment in Singapore, utilising the strengths within our network of Acteon Group sister companies. This allowed us to complete the project on time, avoiding the need for lengthy shipping to the UK.
 
Challenge:
 
The initial scope of work included dismantling of the tensioner structure, blasting and painting of tensioner components, and re-assembly of the unit.
 
However, this scope was expanded significantly to include a wide range of our inspection, repair and maintenance capabilities, including: repair, replacement, fabrication, procurement, installation and integration of vital components. We also completed full inspection and function testing before mobilising the equipment for a job in Australia.
 
Outcome:
 
The timeline:
  • Equipment transported from Aquatic yard to Awin Engineering: 16th Jan

  • Work started: 17th Jan

  • Transported back to Aquatic yard: 2nd March

  • Successfully function tested: 4th March 

  • Ready to mobilise to Australia later that month.

 
The benefits of local refurbishment: 
  • Cost benefit of not having to freight kit to UK – substantial savings on shipping each way

  • Time savings – approximately 3–4 weeks each way

  • Expanding local resource skillset on major refurbishment process

  • Establishing guidelines and processes for future maintenance work to be conducted locally
