Thermo-graphic surveys for the Ministry of Defence

James Fisher Mimic (JFM) has secured a major contract to supply infrared thermographic surveys to the Ministry of Defence (MoD) on key vessels.

As part of an on-going long-term relationship with the MoD, JFM will be providing annual surveys to 26 vessels worldwide.

JFM has been providing Mimic Condition Monitoring software and services to the organisation for over 25 years, and Mimic software is in daily use on-board their surface and sub-surface vessels. 

However, this package comes as part of a four-year contract to support the MoD's condition based maintenance strategy for improved vessel safety and reliability. The contract requires JFM to visit the vessels on an annual basis during their operational duties to conduct an infrared thermographic survey of selected equipment on-board.

The new contract, which was awarded following a competitive tender process, is an endorsement of JFM’s professionalism and expertise, and is further example of JFM’s trusted relationship with this key government department.

Shaun Rowe, account manager at JFM explains:

‘Thermographic surveying of electrical and mechanical systems not only prevents breakdowns and damage but it is also a key tool in preventing potential fire risks within ships.

'Undertaking thermographic imaging, as part of an overall condition based maintenance strategy, provides the contractor with improved reliability of their assets and vessels.’
