John Crane Asset Management Solutions has secured a three year contract to provide condition-based maintenance services with a major operator in the UK North Sea. This £3 million agreement, which follows a competitive retender, extends the contract that John Crane Asset Management Solutions has held for the past eight years.

The scope of the work involves rotating equipment across 12 assets and infrastructure sites, along with the deployment of a specialist engineer to the operator’s UK offices. This will support reliability improvement.

In October 2015, John Crane Asset Management Solutions announced that it had acquired XPD8 Solutions; an independent asset management business. All employees from both firms have now transferred to one site, which includes offices and workshops.

This latest contract is for an initial three years plus two one year options. It will enable the John Crane Asset Management Solutions team to use its expertise in order to fully meet the customer’s needs and further increase its asset performance. John Crane Asset Management Solutions engineers will mentor their onshore and offshore compatriots with the client. This will include data collection training to minimise costs associated with sending specialists offshore.

Rod Mackenzie, UK Reliability Engineering Manager at John Crane Asset Management Solutions, said: “We will be supporting the client in transitioning from a mostly time-based maintenance programme to a condition based maintenance and reliability centred programme. This approach allows full ownership of each plant, with all data captured and used to ensure assets are working efficiently with any issues identified before they reach the stage of a breakdown.

“Key factors in securing the contract included our existing close business relationship and track record of success with the client, along with the experience in taking a holistic approach to maintenance.”
