Maintenance / Repair & Overhaul Projects
DND Miscellaneous Repair & Overhaul Contract
Fleetway has, since August 2004, been responsible for the management and execution of the Miscellaneous (RMR) Equipment Repair and Overhaul contract for the Department of National Defence (DND) of Canada.
Fleetway’s work scope includes the receipt of repairable items, the identification of qualified vendors (OEM dealers for the repair), the sourcing of repairs on a competitive basis, the awarding of contracts to selected vendors / repair facilities, freight coordination, and the verification of the required repairs and the return of material to DND. Fleetway personnel also worked with the DND supply staff to assess the R&O effectiveness and conduct trend analysis of items returned through the R&O process. This assessment alerted the DND and changes in failure rates and the possibility of insufficient component spares. The contract also calls for the provision of Warehousing and Mobile Repair Party support as well as technical investigations and studies.
The type of repairable items spans the needs of the Army, Air Force and Navy including such items as: circuit boards, King Posts for the Navy Frigates, radomes for the F-18 aircraft, radiators for the Army’s trucks, and Decompression Chambers for the Fleet Diving facilities.
Repair and Overhaul of Navy Major Pumps
Fleetway was awarded through a competitive process the repair and overhaul (R&O) and test of the large pumps used in various fluid systems onboard the Halifax Class. The requirement also includes performing modifications, conducting Special Investigations and Technical Studies (SITS), supplying Field Service Representatives/Mobile Repair Parties (FSR/MRP) and providing Technical Investigations and Engineering Support (TIES).
Fleetway manages the Navy pump R&O and subcontracts the repair, testing and shipping to a qualified and approved company. The scope of R&O work is based upon the strip-down report undertaken by Fleetway. If R&O is financially prudent, Fleetway, using OEM parts repairs the pump and then subjects it to a detailed test and trial regime for performance, vibration and noise. The resulting pump must qualify, as stated in the specification to as an “As New Condition” condition before being returned to the Navy.
HALIFAX Class Maintenance System Review (HALMOAR)
Fleetway was contracted to undertake a complete review of the Halifax Class frigate’s Maintenance Plan, Schedule and specifications with the aim of making maintenance more efficient while reducing the cost of maintenance overall. The project was divided into three phases with discrete deliverables required following completion. The three phases/tasks included: 1) Assess the impact of extending the Operation Cycle from the current 48 Months to 60 Months, 2) Assess and rationalize the entire Preventive Maintenance regime, and 3) Undertake the Failure Mode Effect and Analysis (FMEA) for implementation into DRMIS, the Navy and Armed Force’s resource management system.
The Phase 1 results concluded that taking into account the criteria of safety to personnel, impact on mission, damage to material, and impact on the environment, moving to a 60 month based maintenance plan was achievable and only required changes to about 25% of the maintenance specifications. Phase 2, the PM rationalization resulted in the effective reduction of the crew’s maintenance load of 55%, while only canceling only 4% of the specifications. The Phase 3 work, FMEA is currently ongoing and may be further enhanced to absorb the post MCM/FELEX equipment and systems data.
