Thursday, October 10, 2013

Darlington, UK-based Intertek has expanded their Darlington UK ShipCare Coordination Centre to better support their growing international marine services of fuel and lube testing, inspection and technical expertise.

Intertek provides ShipCare services in 250 major ports, located in over 100 countries. The Darlington UK Centre coordinates and reports ShipCare work worldwide, providing clients with one single, convenient, point of contact for global services.

Intertek’s ShipCare program provides a range of value-added services supporting the world’s seagoing vessels with testing, inspection, and technical expertise. Global capabilities include marine bunker fuel quality and quantity measurement and assurance, marine lubricants condition monitoring, and related expert troubleshooting and preventive maintenance solutions.

The ShipCare marine fuel quality testing programme conforms to ISO 8217 and provides full engineering comments, giving international clients fast, comprehensive information to better protect engines and powertrains, promote safe burning of fuel, achieving optimum performance and reliability, and meet legislative and environmental compliance.

In addition bunker quantity surveys, available on a global basis, help protect the ship owner and operator’s financial interests when taking delivery of bunker fuels. Bunker fuel is usually the most expensive component of any sea voyage involving large vessels.

Tracking changes in ship machinery lubricant quality is another benefit of ShipCare. Intertek’s Oil Condition Monitoring programme provides vital “early-warning” of impending problems, helping avoid machinery failures, reducing risk of unplanned downtime and costly repairs.
