The SKF Marine Industry Service Centre will provide a wide range of services and products for the marine industry and will accommodate facilities for training and certification related to the marine industry. 
According to SKF Global Marine Segment Manager David L.H. Johansson, SKF has developed a range of solutions that improve availability and cut operating costs across the marine market, “Our expertise applies to machinery systems on a range of ship types, from oil & gas fleets and pipelay vessels, large container carriers and cruise ships, to highly specialised research vessels and workboats.” He notes, “Whether a business is involved in designing, building, sailing or maintaining a vessel, SKF can help improve profitability in a multitude of ways.”
