ISD – The IPU Service Division
The IPU Service Division was created to address the market demand for an officially-approved, manufacturer-backed installation, inspection and maintenance service. It covers products manufactured by three of IPU’s main business divisions:
These divisions manufacture systems that ensure the reliable operation of safety equipment such as fire pumps and emergency generators. Our systems are found in locations as diverse as towering office blocks or deep mines and on ships and platforms in the world’s wildest oceans.
- The IPU Service Division delivers consistent quality around the world
The IPU Service Division’s installation, inspection and maintenance functions are offered via our own staff and through trained and qualified staff working for select IPU distributors. Leveraging our global network of distributors allows us to offer an identical standard of professional, dependable service around the clock and around the world.
All our staff and partners are trained by us, the original equipment manufacturer, to deliver the same level of diligence and expertise. Installations follow the same procedures, inspections use the same test protocols and repairs are executed to the same standard.
- The financial benefits of the IPU Service Division
A recent report by Lloyd’s Register suggests that maintenance costs on offshore platforms could exceed design and build costs because so many platforms are operating after their expected decommissioning date.
This places a heavy burden on operators to reduce costs in every possible way. The IPU Service Division can help by driving three diverse systems through one supplier. Economies of scale can be achieved when one supplier handles engine starting, fuel and oil conditioning systems.
- The logistical advantages of the IPU Service Division
Lloyd’s Register suggests that over 750,000 works orders could be created to maintain a typical platform during its working life. It’s easy to imagine the logistical complications this presents any operator. The IPU Service Division can help once again by rolling the inspection and maintenance of several system into a single works order from a single supplier.
