Newport Shipping targets turnkey solutions
Newport Shipping has signed cooperation agreements with several marine equipment suppliers and service companies to help fulfil its aim of providing shipowners with turnkey ship repair and retrofit solutions across its partner shipyards.
Agreements with hatch cover specialist Navitech, machinery specialist IngeJov, and ShipParts.com for turnkey spares supply, allows Newport Shipping to procure spare parts and deliver specialised services on behalf of its customers as part of its global shiprepair service. As part of the agreement, all spare parts required by Newport Shipping customers will be procured and fulfilled by the ShipParts.com portal and delivered to the yard before vessel arrival.
David Luan, founder and CEO of ShipParts.com, said: “We are delighted to have signed this cooperation agreement with Newport Shipping. The agreement allows its shipowner customers and partner shipyards to benefit from economies of scale, with access to more than 5800 equipment suppliers and counting, including all the major brands.”
More agreements ahead
Newport Shipping’s COO Roy Yap said similar agreements are currently being negotiated with other suppliers, notably scrubber and ballast water treatment system manufacturers.
“We will be shortly announcing several cooperation agreements with scrubber makers and 3D scanning and engineering companies towards providing a turnkey scrubber retrofit offering backed with financing,” he said.
The company is also considering introducing riding squads to carry out afloat repair works and scrubber retrofits to reduce the off-hire times faced by shipowners.
