Elcome Signs New Fleet Service Agreements
Elcome International, one of the largest marine technologies and system integrators in the world, today announced the signing of fleet service agreements with two major ship operators in the Middle East.
Elcome will provide shore-based maintenance and service for navigation, automation and electrical systems for 45 crude and product tankers operated by a Dubai-based shipping company under a three-year contract. The scope of work will include periodic inspections, performance and health checks, routine overhauling and repairs.
In addition, Elcome has signed an annual maintenance agreement for navigation and communication systems for 20 ships operated by an Abu Dhabi-based shipping company. The contract covers the ships’ navigation and communication systems, and also includes airtime provision for the ships’ Inmarsat satellite terminals.
Elcome is expanding its maritime service reach across the region, having recently opened new facilities in Egypt, Sri Lanka and Singapore. The company now has over 200 factory-trained service technicians and spares available at more than 20 ports in the Middle East and South Asia, as well as 24/7 global flyaway service. The company currently performs more than 830 ship service calls per month.
“These two new fleet agreements are the latest in our rapidly growing ship service and support business,” said Surjit Singh, deputy general manager of customer support at Elcome International. “We are now firmly established as one of the largest marine service companies in the world. Our highly trained service engineers consistently win high marks from customers for responsiveness, quality of work and industry-leading first-time fix rate.”
