Preventive maintenance

Extending vessel life

As your service partner, SCHOTTEL supports you with preventive maintenance of your propulsion systems. The goal is to maximize the operating life of vessels while minimizing operating costs.

Regular dry-docking

Utilizing maintenance schedules

Vessels which are subject to acceptance by a classification society must be serviced at regular intervals. The installed SCHOTTEL propulsion systems also require maintenance at fixed intervals. SCHOTTEL is your expert partner for managing this preventive maintenance. As an original equipment manufacturer, we have the necessary in-depth product knowledge for comprehensive maintenance. All parts supplied by us are covered by our warranty.

Our service portfolio ranges from the preparation of quotations and concrete package solutions to detailed planning on site. You will benefit from:

  • Our years of experience

Plan your vessel’s service intervals with SCHOTTEL. We will inform you the year before a service is due. Please contact us here without obligation to ensure that your vessel is listed in our documents for the correct maintenance interval.


Extending operating life

A long operating life requires further scheduled overhauls in addition to the regular maintenance intervals. Components that are exposed to particularly high mechanical loads are replaced in order to ensure the customary high performance of the propulsion systems. Overhauls are carried out on site or by contractors authorized by SCHOTTEL.

Drawing on decades of experience, SCHOTTEL supports you by reducing downtime to a calculable minimum. This allows damaged components to be identified even before docking using suitable measuring methods (condition monitoring, VibCheck Analysis, oil analyses, etc.). Expertise and experience also play a role when it comes to providing typical spare parts on time.

If you wish to carry out condition-based maintenance, we will support you with professional equipment and expertise.
