IMS Saves Money

Press Release
Friday, January 11, 2013

Following a record number of ASD Tug deliveries in 2012, accomplished Ship Delivery and Crew Training specialists, International Maritime Services (IMS) have handed over two ROPAX Ferries and a Workboat in quick succession to their respective owners. After completing an arduous 10,100 NM delivery voyage, the 117 metre ROPAX Ferry “Santa Cruz de Tenerife” arrived in its new home port of Busan Korea, earlier this week, hot on the heels of the successful delivery of a 26 metre Damen catamaran work boat from Singapore to Australia and a 99 metre Coastal Ferry relocated from Greece to Zanzibar.


In all three cases, IMS provided Onboard Familiarisation & Maintenance (OFM) Training to the owner’s crew, whilst on route – combining resources to save time and money which proves to be a very effective mode of training that can be expanded further if required, subject to clients’ requirements.


IMS Chief Operating Officer, Brendan Cooley stated, “IMS boasts an expanding list of satisfied customers who have taken advantage of our Delivery service offering and combined it with our OFM Training packages. Thus, the vessel arrives at its final destination with the primary crew familiar with the ship, its operational characteristics and maintenance requirements.”


Managing Director, Kim Cleggett added “There are clear financial and logistical advantages for our clients when they have the capacity to send their crew on the delivery voyage to familiarise themselves whilst underway. We will continue to service our clients with the greatest respect to the value of a dollar”


Based in Australia, IMS is one of the world’s leading ship delivery specialists and total solutions provider specialising in Ship Delivery, Management, Sea Trials and Crew Training.
