Providing a strategic platform to manage naval asset performance, while reducing risk and total cost of ownership

Asset management capabilities

  • Stakeholder needs analysis
  • Demand management
  • Systems engineering
  • Acquisition
  • Configuration management
  • Operations & maintenance
  • Continuous improvement

NSM’s asset management capability balances purpose, capability, risk and opportunity against the desired asset performance throughout its lifecycle. To deliver a seaworthy fleet of complex naval assets safely and efficiently, on time, every time, we invest in our:

  • Processes – aligned to the ISO 55001 standard, for complex and critical equipment, and tailored to the needs of all stakeholders.
  • People – providing the ‘Know-How ‘and ‘Know-Why’ required to develop an effective long- term asset management strategy.
  • Competences – our ability to apply knowledge and skills to achieve intended results.
  • Technologies – a particular focus on ‘Know-What’ to deliver a single, accurate and complete source of truth for the delivery of asset management services. This ensures that asset management decisions and planning are not compromised by a poor knowledge of the ships and their systems.

Working with our parent companies, Babcock and UGL, enables us to leverage their digital assets and commercial experience, across transport, power and resources, for the benefit of our customers.

Overseas asset maintenance planning and support

In 2017, our team was instrumental to the planning and delivery of the first Major Fleet Unit Extended Maintenance Period delivered overseas – for HMAS Arunta in Bahrain. Our planning strategy included bringing high-risk works forward to earlier maintenance periods and engaging with local industry.
