It is important to address obsolescence issues early in current supply chain congestion, as obsolete or unavailable components can impact fleet availability. Early action such as switching to new technologies can minimize the impact of obsolescence and ensure availability,
even extend the life of the automation system and vessel. Through our continuous development, we can provide regular updates in the form of upgrades for optimized operation of your vessels and fleets.
With obsolescence upgrades as part of mid-term refits, we provide assistance to propulsion systems in the middle of their life cycle. Worn parts are replaced, age-related failures are avoided, and functions and capabilities are brought up to original levels. The retrofit includes replacing the mechanical governor with our new ADEC-UNI electronic governor which is a prerequisite for further refit with state-of-the-art marine automation solutions such as our mtu NautIQ portfolio.
