Recommissioning of laid-up vessel

Jack-up in shipyard

We support vessel owners and shipyards in a systematic, cost-effective reactivation of laid-up vessels returning to operation.

The quality of preservation and maintenance during the lay-up period is essential for effective recommissioning of a vessel. Managing uncertainty in planning, preparation and budgeting is a key challenge for stakeholders.
