Challenges faced

The SPHL was delivered from Unique Group’s Netherlands office and the maintenance had to be performed from our Singapore facility which required a collaborative technical partnership between our two offices to complete the maintenance within the client stipulated deadlines.

Unique Solution delivered

Unique Group started the maintenance with an initial assessment of the SPHL and the LARS in the DSV, this helped the team plan the maintenance activities and schedule the project to ensure timely delivery to the client.

The first phase constituted of dismantling the system and preparing it for sandblasting and painting, the second phase involved the installation of the parts to be replaced and the painting of the system. The third and final phase was the installation of the system back on the DSV, ready for use by the client.
