MINSHIP Shipmanagement has signed a maintenance and service agreement with Marlink subsidiary Telemar for eight bulk carriers.
The contract will see Telemar provide service co-ordination for Bavaria-based MINSHIP., including the provision of the Telemar World Service (TWS), a web-based tool for managing scheduled and predictive service appointments for the fleet.
MINSHIP will follow a planned maintenance strategy to create better predictability in its vessel operations. The contract includes a shore-based maintenance contract including annual radio survey, exchange and check of EPIRB and SART, VDR APT and CoC, annual gyro compass and radar overhaul and exchange of X- and S-band radar magnetrons.
“MINSHIP prides itself on being a transparent and co-operative service provider; our commitment to responding individually to customer wishes requires a fleet designed for highly reliable operations,” said Markus Hiltl, Managing Director, MINSHIP.
“The importance of properly planned and executed maintenance to our vessel operations is paramount and makes Telemar the natural choice for a closer relationship.”
