Fanbeam® fleet spare package

Since Dynamic Positioning (DP) regulations have tended to increase in their stringency over time, and because the failure of a position reference system can lead to a reduction in DP classification and costly vessel downtime, many fleet operators are now ensuring that they have backup plans in case of system failure or damage.

For fleets with a number of Fanbeams, holding a spare can eliminate vessel downtime, giving an attractive return on investment and supporting proactive maintenance.

Fanbeam's Fleet Spare Package keeps vessels working

The importance of scheduling maintenance checks for equipment without sacrificing the availability of vessels for project work is a common issue for vessel operators.

Our intelligent design, high-quality production and global service centres are all geared to help keep your fleet working.

Nevertheless, since Fanbeam can be a mission-critical piece of equipment, particularly on smaller vessels that are wholly dependent on DGPS and Fanbeam as position references, sound fleet management will want to ensure:

  • vessel downtime is minimised
  • vessels in remote areas are supported
  • a proactive maintenance plan is in place to ensure equipment performance

Fleet packages

To meet the demands of fleets with five or more vessels, we've put together a specially priced package consisting of the sensor, control system, prism cluster and complete set of cables and accessories. This fleet spare package can be mobilised  in the event of damage or failure but, crucially, in support of proactive maintenance through equipment rotation.
