Key Insights & Considerations:

  • Offshore service programs preserve and extend the operational life of valuable technology like hydraulics systems
  • Harsh offshore operating environments, as well as distance from shore repair facilities, add unique challenges to standard industrial service programs
  • Investing in preventive maintenance and scheduled overhauls is more economical than purchasing new or replacement equipment, even during downturns in cyclical businesses
  • Service providers should be selected based on their expertise with the equipment being serviced, such as the OEM
  • Rig-certified field technicians and multiple regional repair facilities provide more reliable solution for comprehensive service programs
