3 ways that UK ports can support laid-up ships and vessels with cost-effective services

The downturn in the oil and gas market has seen many ships and vessels being laid up in UK ports. Aggreko is increasingly working with port authorities to provide rental power and temperature control services. These help to support customers whilst assets are laying idle, so they can be quickly re-mobilised when the time comes.


1. Environmental control equipment to preserve assets

Whilst vessels are laid up, it is important for on-board assets to be kept in optimum condition, so they can be redeployed in future without excessive cost.

Aggreko can install temporary on board temperature control equipment to prevent corrosion, condensation and freezing, caused by unwanted moisture and salt from coastal conditions.

Using a variety of heating and dehumidification equipment, the temperature and humidity of internal air spaces can be controlled. This ensures void spaces within machinery and pipelines remain dry and prevents corrosion damage and moisture absorption into electrical cables and fittings.


By creating a stable environment, our rental equipment ensures assets, such as the engine room, bridge and sensitive electronic equipment, remain in peak condition, no matter how long it takes before they are recommissioned.


2. Cost effective power


Whether hot or cold stacked, vessels will require some degree of power for tasks such as routine regular maintenance, or heating and lighting for crew. By using temporary dock side rental generators, customers can shut down their main engines or existing over sized emergency generators and improve operational and cost efficiency. As we undertake the refuelling, servicing and maintenance of our generators, customers can save additional money and manpower too.


There is a growing demand for dockyards to consider using low carbon emissions power. In such cases, gas generators can be a viable option.


3. Equipment testing prior to redeployment


If market conditions pick up, a re-mobilisation plan will be needed. As part of this process all power supplies and HVAC equipment should be load tested to ensure it functions properly when returned to full working order. The Aggreko team is experienced at providing this capability to load test the main generators, emergency generators, and any cooling systems on the vessel.


Rental solutions offer three main benefits:

Flexibility: Rental equipment can be scaled up or down with very short lead times to supply variable demands.

Wide range of equipment: Renting equipment offers the ability to change equipment, dependent on ambient temperatures or on board power requirements.

End to end solution: Aggreko provides a complete service, from site survey, through to installation, continuous maintenance, refuelling and extraction.
