While many companies feel the need to keep hose maintenance in-house, others are choosing to focus on their core business by bringing in specialist partners to whom they entrust hose management and maintenance instead. Here’s what to consider when deciding whether or not outsourcing hose maintenance is for you.
The lack of adequate maintenance is often a direct cause of asset breakdown. The rate of deterioration is less noticeable during the first few years of the asset lifespan, however, it begins to accelerate significantly thereafter. MARSOL’s preservation practices ensure that the performance of the whole system is consistent throughout its working life.
Whether greenfield or brownfield, it is never too early or too late to make the right decision. Find out what it means to operate a sustainable offshore terminal and how to achieve this with marine terminal integrity management.
To ensure that your offshore terminal operates efficiently throughout its service lifespan, you need operational integrity management that is unique to your terminal, your team and your environment – while remaining consistent with applicable standards. This plan should include measurement and analysis that quantifies progress, optimisation and operational expenditure (OpEx) so that you can understand and predict successes and failures. Here’s where to start!
To ensure that your offshore terminal operates efficiently with your long-term goals and budget in mind, you need a turnkey O&M strategy and service provider that brings you peace of mind.

Hose manufacturers typically recommend SPM hose change out after 5 years but it may also be needed at other times due to hose failure or excessive wear. Replaced hoses should undergo OCIMF testing to determine wear patterns and root causes of failure, which will assist in ensuring that the shortened lifespan is not repeated in the new hoses. Knowing what to expect from your hose change out and the OCIMF testing process will ensure that you get it right.
As a manufacturer you can ensure the quality of your product, but not the operational success. That’s where a holistic hose management partner helps you to disrupt the status quo!
