User meeting BrusselsIn the beginning of November 2010, SPM Instrument held an international user group meeting in Brussels for users in the maritime business. Meeting participants from Europe and Asia, representing the forefront in modern Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) practices, enjoyed two days of presentations, active discussions and exchange of experiences.

The conference featured presentations by invited speakers from commercial shipping companies, marine contractors, marine equipment manufacturers, navy representatives and Norwegian classification society DNV. The presentations adressed the driving forces behind industry investments in condition monitoring and covered the technology and successful implementation of Condition Based Maintenance using SPM solutions on board vessels. DNV explained their views on CM notification and demonstrated the benefits of implementing such an arrangement.
