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
The NISO covers global technical support, spare parts management, operational reviews, preventive maintenance and drydocking services for these emergency response vessels.
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 drydocking timing through better planning.
ABB Marine & Ports head of service Jyri Jusslin said “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 a selection of services in a comprehensive package.”
The services included in the NISO are tailored to the specific needs of CCS’s vessels and will cover ABB technology installed on board CCG’s icebreakers, search and rescue vessels, fishery science, ocean science and specialty ships. Among these ships are four medium icebreakers, six light icebreakers and buoy tenders.
The NISO also covers customised technical studies, onboard surveys and engineering support. The proactive approach extends to crew training, where ABB guidance can further minimise failures and downtime.
