These differences have pushed RSS (Remote Rigstack Services) to junk many traditional mothball methods. Our new Preservation Procedures minimize the deterioration at the lowest possible cost, while staying focussed on what the Classification societies and clients will want to see at the time of vessel remobilization.
Recognizing the changing needs of vessel preservation, ABS has just issued new layup guidelines including a new catagory entitled: 'Enhanced Laid Up' This is a most welcomed and much needed development. The new guidelines widens the scope of how we can effectively preserve and mothball expensive assets.
RRS's Preservastion Procedures are proprietary, developed by our own in-house engineers. Ask us for a presentation, if nothing else, you will learn a lot about new innovations and approaches about marine asset preservation.
ABS APPROVED ENHANCED STACKING PROCEDURE
