SPS Technology’s Ian Nash, explains in the International Cruise Ship Industry‘s Innovation Magazine that the company’s involvement in an innovative, flexible and reliable approach to repairs and maintenance for cruise ships post-COVID-19, helping with cruise recovery.

‘What is clear is that the traditional processes around class surveys, repairs, and scheduled maintenance are no longer conducive to the industry’s present-day challenges. In order for the cruise sector to bounce back, there is a strong argument to transition away from a warm or cold lay-up in a phased restart. Innovation, marrying proven technologies with common-sense alterations to our standard procedures of assessing and conducting repairs, will be a key driver.’
