Schottel expands service network in Australia

The Spayer drive manufacturer is expanding its service network in Western Australia. The company has entered into a cooperation agreement with Fremantle Foundry and Engineering (FFE).

Schottel Australia and the Australian specialist for the repair of drive systems have signed a corresponding service agreement. The cooperation is intended to expand the service network and strengthen the repair of the German manufacturer’s OEM-quality products in Western Australia.

FFE reportedly offers expert maintenance, both onshore in its workshops and offshore. Founded in 1902, the company is an accredited NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) facility as well as a DNV-certified fabrication workshop. Fifteen mechanical engineers with up to 30 years of experience ensure FFE’s professional services, it says.

Schottel expands service worldwide

Victor Zhang, Managing Director of Schottel Australia, summarizes the new partnership as follows: “Two companies with a long history and extensive experience in propulsion systems have joined forces with the common goal of supporting Schottel customers in Australia and keeping their fleets running with minimal downtime.”

With already more than 100 sales and service stations around the globe, the Spay-based company continues to expand its service network and aims to bring its service and repair locations even closer to its customers. Experienced experts provide individual services throughout the entire life cycle of ships, ensuring maximum availability and efficiency of the systems, according to the company.
