Exxon International Awards Maintenance Contract To Stanwick

The Stanwick Company, a division of The Stanwick Corporation, has been awarded a contract by Exxon International Company to furnish shipboard maintenance and inventory control systems for ships of the Esso Everett-class, c o m p r i s e d of four 37,000-dwt diesel-driven tankers.

The system to be installed will provide a simple, yet effective, method for managing shipboard maintenance and inventory control operations. It will ensure required preventive maintenance actions are performed on schedule in order to minimize unexpected failures, inform Exxon manage- ment of the current status of maintenance actions and spare parts usage, and permit continuous system operation despite personnel turnover changes. Stanwick's system offers users a low initial implementation cost, operational simplicity with minimum paperwork, plus maximum flexibility for adaption to other ships of an owner's fleet.

A c c o r d i n g to Robert Apple, president of The Stanwick Com- metalpany, engineers from Stanwick's M a r i t i m e Systems Department and Exxon's Maintenance and Repair staff will establish scheduled maintenance tasks for all maintainable shipboard equipment and prepare the management plan for s c h e d u l i n g , accomplishing, and auditing these tasks. Stanwick will also inventory all shipboard repair parts and furnish a com- puterized, inventory control program.

The Stanwick Company is prominent in the development and implementation of organized maintenance management systems to maximize "uptime" for today's maritime and offshore industries.
