The Shore-based Maintenance (SBM) service package will include coordination and annual performance tests of the systems as well as procurement of any necessary spare parts, with main ports identified for INTERSCHALT to perform the service.
INTERSCHALT claims the contract will help Jüngerhans to reduce administration costs, while a fixed yearly price increases budget security.
"It didn't take us long to be convinced by INTERSCHALT's modern and varied service concept," said Jens Köster, fleet operations manager at Jüngerhans.
“The individual consulting beforehand, the on-site service, and the regular assessments are of a very high standard. A level of quality that also has a positive effect on our fleet, since it conserves the fleet's value in the long term and also avoids off-hire times.”
Jüngerhans has an established relationship with INTERSCHALT, using the company’s MACS3 loading computer on its ships for several years.
"Our heavy-lift vessels transport project cargo of various sizes and weights throughout the world. We also use an INTERSCHALT product for the stability calculation, the well-known MACS3 loading computer," said Mr Köster.
