Exxon ULCCs Receive

Stanwick Maintenance

And Inventory Services

The Stanwick merchant ship maintenance system will be in- stalled on four of the largest ships in the world, according to Robert

Apple, president of The Stanwick

Company Division of The Stan- wick Corporation, Washington,


Exxon International Company has awarded the contract to de- velop and install the maintenance system and to inventory the on- board spares in the four ultra large crude carriers (ULCCs) of the Esso Atlantic/Tokyo class.

Two of these tankers are approxi- mately 500,000 dwt and two are 400,000 dwt. Exxon has decided to proceed with this class after a year of evaluation of the Stan- wick maintenance system on four 37,000-dwt tankers of the Everett class.

According to Bud Kelly, The

Stanwick Company project man- ager, maintenance engineering analysts from Stanwick's Mari- time Systems Department, work- ing in coordination with Exxon's maintenance and repair staff, will establish a comprehensive pro- gram of scheduled maintenance tasks for all maintainable ship- board equipment, and produce the management system for schedul- ing and auditing the accomplish- ment of the program. Stanwick will also inventory all shipboard repair parts to provide input data for a computerized inventory con- trol program.

Stanwick's maintenance and in- ventory control systems are in- stalled in more than 50 other commercial ships and drill rigs around the world.
