Problem statement

The current climate has resulted in short inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) scopes being deferred, delayed or cancelled as they are not viable to carry out on a stand-alone basis.


  • Share equipment and vessels over multi campaigns and operators to reduce non-productive time.
  • Demonstrate cost savings by increasing schedule efficiency.


  • Framework with key clients
  • Dedicated project delivery team
  • IRM campaign builder database
  • Schedule control to support turnaround (TAR) shutdown and opportunities in the vicinity
  • Managing and minimising risks across campaigns
  • Streamlining processes


  • Sustainable campaign management resulting in traditional project costs being significantly reduced.
  • Innovative working relationship with operators and supply chain.
  • Non-productive time managed.
  • Value chain opportunities and economies of scale realised.
  • Efficient framework for a cohesive approach to project delivery.
