Marine technology company ABB has been awarded a National Individual Standing Offer (NISO) to provide full-scope services for equipment installed on board Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) vessels, including remote diagnostics, condition monitoring support and cyber security assistance.
The NISO also covers global technical support, spare parts management, operational reviews, preventive maintenance and drydocking services.
The programme has been introduced to improve visibility on through-life service activities for vessel equipment, with the goal of reducing overall maintenance costs while maximising vessel uptime and timeliness for drydocking through better advance planning.
“With far more coastline to patrol than any other coast guard, often in the harshest of conditions, the CCG is exactly the type of customer which can benefit most from including selection of services in a comprehensive package,” said Jyri Jusslin, Head of Service, ABB Marine & Ports.
“We are honoured to have been chosen to support the smooth-running of vessels operated by one of the leading coastguard organisations in the world.”
The deal will cover ABB technology installed on board CCG’s icebreakers, search & rescue vessels, fishery science, ocean science and specialty ships. Among these ships are four medium icebreakers and six light icebreakers and buoy tenders.
