Preventive maintenance service at Alewijnse Marine Rotterdam
This publication is only available in English
The perception of maintenance of technical assets has been subject to considerable change since the 1940s. Where it was ﬁrst considered as a necessary evil, to be carried out only after an asset breaks down, in more recent years maintenance is considered as a business function which a company can beneﬁt from. Within the maritime sector there seems to be interest in the beneﬁts of maintenance as well. Therefore Alewijnse Marine Rotterdam has commissioned a research project the objective of which is to contribute to the setup of a third party preventive maintenance service.
