Hydraulic system survey prevents costly downtime

14th March 2022


Our client is a multinational offshore vessel owner working with companies and projects throughout the world.

The Problem

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, one of their hydraulic systems containing over 200 hydraulic hose assemblies and 20 hydraulic cylinders had not been active for several months, potentially causing the system to seize.

Our client approached us to carry out a full asset site survey inspection and report back with findings, recommendations and remedial work if necessary.

The Solution

Our team of technicians attended site and carried out a system integrity management survey complete with reporting on the following:

  • Inspection
  • Identification
  • Measurement
  • Numbering & tagging of each item
  • New hose register created
  • Detailed report on all findings
  • Quotation raised for remedial work for the removal, renewal, refurbishment tag, test & flush of all hoses in line with the British Fluid Power Association standards.
  • Certification pack provided upon completion


Following the early request from our client and our prompt action on carrying out the survey, we were able to provide a detailed report and ensure our client had all of the information required to enable their system was maintained and zero downtime was experienced.

“Our client’s early intervention and awareness that their system needed a comprehensive survey ensured our quick response which resulted in no interruption to their processes.”
