  3. Feb 2018AEGIR-Marine is available 24/7

    On Sunday morning we received an urgent call from a Superintendent who just left the shipyard after dry-dock, but ran into serious problems on their Propulsion systems. With only a maximum pitch of 35% on her pitch propeller the vessel could not continue her journey, which would cause possible delays in her charter. After a call with our 24/7 duty officer a control specialist was consulted and found that the problem could not be solved by the crew. Within 1.5 hour from the initial call from the superintendent, our control specialist was on board at the Maasvlakte terminals, where a root cause analysis has been conducted. Within 2 hours the problem was found and solved. After a sea trial with positive result, the vessel and its crew finally headed out for sea!

  4. Jan 20185 maritime trends for 2018: the promise of service

    Although the economy in general is booming, unfortunately growth in many segments of the shipping industry is still lagging behind. Yet there are some small rays of hope, and it’s about time. Another side effect of the economic crisis is that it has triggered a 'race to the bottom'. Many companies are approaching their nadir, hit rock bottom or were swallowed by the ground. A dead end race as far as I am concerned. Merging and downsizing, larger vessels and containerization have made companies more efficient. And with Big Data, automation and eventually even unmanned vessels, there are still many benefits to be gained. But our industry seems to have lost a lot of its elasticity. Many efficiency successes were at the expense of personnel, customer orientation and as a result customer satisfaction. Especially on this aspect companies can make a difference in the short and longer term. Therefore I would like to emphasize five prerequisites for a future-proof, service-oriented organization.
