SAGE provides around the clock services to Inco Ships

19 December 2013

Inco Ships is an Australian Ship Management company, who manage and operate ships from conventional geared bulk carriers, complex self-unloading bulk cargo ships, fully automated powder cement carriers and large transshipment projects, in the Australasian region.
 
Having felt let down by various Electrical contractors, Inco Ships appointed SAGE Service to support their shipping operations in April 2009.  
 
Since then SAGE has provided Inco Ships with the following services:
• PLC support
• Preventative Maintenance
• Fault finding and resolution
• Compliance with marine health, safety and environmental standards
• Hazardous area upgrades
• Major maintenance shutdown work
• SCADA system support
 
“The results speak for themselves, from simple electrical work to complex PLC issues, SAGE Service has enabled us to maintain our sailing schedule with timely repairs round the clock, essential as our vessels work around the clock.  They have been part of our annual maintenance schedule, providing faultfinding and enabling us to run trouble free. More over their team has a positive approach with a gentle smile which make working together a pleasure.”  Kevin Menezes - Engineering Manager, Inco Ships Pty Ltd
 
In 2013, the work of SAGE Service with Inco was noted by Canadian Steamship Lines (CSL).  CSL operate 12 ocean-going vessels in the Australasian region.  CLS are the largest owner of Australian-registered vessels operating in Australian waters and the major supplier of shipping services to the construction and building industries.

CSL provide specialised self-unloading and transhipment services and deliver over 8.5 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo a year for customers primarily in the construction industry. Typical cargo includes cement, gypsum, clinker, coal, salt, sugar, iron ore, alumina, limestone and heavy mineral concentrate.
