James Fisher monitoring for 'Harmony of the Seas'
The 'Harmony of the Seas' is the sixth RCCL vessel to be installed with Mimic
James Fisher Mimic (JFM) has installed its condition monitoring software suite onboard Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCCL) ship 'Harmony of the Seas'.
RCCL chose the software to provide assurance on the condition and performance of the world's largest cruise vessel and to ensure good engineering practices. The Mimic condition monitoring system was installed in two phases with the first phase undertaken during the vessel build at Saint Nazaire Shipyard in France and the second during a short spell at sea between Barcelona and Naples during the vessel’s maiden voyage.
Nick Goddard, director, asset management global marine operations of RCCL, said: “Conditionbased maintenance (CBM) forms an important element of our long-term fleet maintenance strategy. Utilising the functionality of the Mimic system combined with the unique integration of the AMOS M&P suite will without doubt enhance our maintenance philosophy onboard the Harmony of the Seas and throughout our fleet.’’
The Harmony of the Seas is the sixth RCCL vessel to be installed with Mimic. The operator is working to implement a simple but highly effective solution which embraces the many advantages of a successful CBM programme across all of its brands.
Onboard engineers collect condition monitoring data using an easy to use portable hand held device. The data is fully accessible through the AMOS CMMS system, thereby allowing condition monitoring to influence the day to day maintenance schedules.
JFM will also provide a monthly data analysis service to the vessel’s chief engineer and shore support staff.
