C-MAR Group announced that it won a contract to carry out Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) surveys and trials on Maridive Group vessels for the next five years. Expected to be worth in excess of $500,000, the agreement covers 16 Maridive Dynamic Positioned (DP) vessels and will be serviced from C-MAR’s Singapore, Dubai and Rio de Janeiro regional headquarters.
All Class Two and Class Three DP vessels are required under classification rules to undergo annual DP FMEA testing. Under the terms of the contract C-MAR will provide a continuous review of the Maridive DP fleet, and where possible will synchronise them with vessels’ five yearly Classification Society special surveys. By co-ordinating both review and mandatory surveys C-MAR will help to maximise the vessels’ operational availability.
While the contract is the first time that C-MAR will carry out FMEA surveys for Maridive, the business has extensive experience in the area. Over the last decade it has conducted more than 300 surveys on behalf of vessel operators, including industry leaders such as Bourbon and Seacor. C-MAR is also recognised as a provider of DP training, having taught more than 10,000 officers since 2002, through its schools in London, Singapore, Rio de Janeiro and Mumbai.
