Summer 2014

Mimic’s twofold triumph

Mimic, the condition-based monitoring software and services arm of the James Fisher group, has just been awarded two great new contracts.

The first new contract is with the Ministry of Defence (MoD), and will see Mimic providing annual thermographic (infrared) surveys on the thirteen vessels of the Royal Fleet Auxilliary (the civilian-manned fleet which performs a support role for the Royal Navy) as well as on eight small Royal Navy vessels. 

Shaun Rowe, the operations manager at Mimic who led the successful MoD bid, explains:

“The detailed survey analysis reports that we create from infrared inspections of electrical and mechanical components provide digital and thermographic images of potential problems on board, and outline recommended repair actions.”

In parallel with the MoD contract, Mimic has also won a significant order from world-leading ship-building company, Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI). This big vote of confidence from HHI means that from March 2015, Mimic will be charged with installing and commissioning the Mimic condition monitoring system onto a SubSea 7 Heavy Construction and Flexible Pipelay vessel, currently being built at Hyundai’s yard in Korea. 

This system monitors performance, vibrations (which can determine the root cause of mechanical problems), and oil conditions of critical machinery, including pumps, motors and gear boxes.

“Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. I am excited by what the future holds for Mimic.” 

Says Cecilia Lindstrand, the company’s newly appointed general manager, responsible for overseeing the expansion of Mimic’s market share and client base.
