A global leader in marine services
At the beginning of this century, if you needed your marine elevator serviced in some remote port, you had two options: fly a marine elevator technician in from your home port, or use a local elevator contractor with no experience in your ship’s elevators. A costly and potentially risky exercise in either scenario. Starting MR Elevator’s worldwide network in 2002 was the solution. It filled the gap at a time when no marine elevator maintenance company was offering 24/7 service worldwide, operating in any docking port, wherever the expertise was needed. Today’s shipping needs are centred around swift delivery, absolute reliability, getting products to market and providing passengers with a safe and pleasant experience. We understand the challenges you face. We’ve got your back.
Marine Elevator Servicing
MR Elevator is now the worldwide market leader in servicing marine elevators on board of all types of ocean going vessels. Our certified technicians are available 24/7, operating out of 131 ports. Our customers rely on us for marine elevator safety inspections, repairs, modernisations, new builds and marine parts.
We also offer onsite service and repair work to lifts on offshore platforms. This specialised work is performed by a select group of technicians with thorough understanding of working life offshore. A select group of our technicians carry OPITO-approved offshore certificates. After many years of maintaining and refitting all types of marine elevators, it was a logical step to offer new, custom made marine elevators.
Today, 150 elevator technicians work for MR Elevator in 131 ports of the world, so you are assured of instant response and efficient, reliable service when you need it.
Marine Spare Parts
With years of experience and a global network of technicians in place, we soon realised something that would change our history. We recognised that customers would find value in having access to a single source of both servicing and spares. Our customers responded with much valued support. The success of our spares offering encouraged us to also supply other ship’s spares, and not only marine elevator spares. Today, MR Spares is a growing company in its own right. We supply spare parts to all types of seagoing vessels, from ferries, to container ships to offshore rigs. You can even order marine spare parts through our Webshop, from wherever you are.
Ballast Water Treatment Systems
Having a service and supply infrastructure in place across 131 ports has enabled MR Marine Group to service ships worldwide, even beyond the field of elevators on ships. We saw a worldwide need for a reliable and accessible ballast water service provider. We stepped up to the challenge. Our customers recognised the benefits of making use of our global experience, no matter their flag state or which waters they’re sailing. MR Ballast, a part of MR Marine Group, now services any water ballast system expertly. Our technicians are trained by the OEMs. Plus: you can contact us 24/7 and we’ll respond instantly, with service to keep your vessels 100% BWM Convention compliant.
Marine Service Technician Training
Skills training has always been very important to MR Marine Group. Our customers rely on us to keep essential on-board equipment running problem-free. That is why we take upskilling so seriously. To ensure that our technicians and our customers’ crews have what it takes, we started MR Academy. At first, we focused on training marine elevator technicians. As our group expanded, we added training in ballast systems and training in general on-board servicing too. Today, we offer training online, on the job and in land-based classrooms.
