Ship Repair and Maintenance
The process of ship repair and maintenance is an essential part of the operation of a ship. Although crew members can perform much of the required maintenance while at sea, some repairs and upgrades require a trip to a shipyard. While some work is performed onboard the vessel, many repairs and upgrades must be carried out under the supervision of classification societies, which designate the vessel’s class and define a set of safety and technical standards. These organizations regularly inspect vessels and ensure that the machinery and equipment are built to the highest standards.
