Condition Based Maintenance and Data Collection


HMH is a full-line certified supplier of maintenance optimization services. The upgrade from condition monitoring (CM) to CBM service supplier let us develop maintenance programs that utilize new data-driven and knowledge-based monitoring methods along with conventional CM techniques such as vibration and oil monitoring, allowing flexibility and continuous development of the service offerings.

As a CBM service supplier, we can offer DrillCon, a bundle of maintenance optimization services, as an enabler to utilize DNV GL classification for smarter operations. The goal of DrillCon is to support any customers seeking to improve equipment reliability, maintenance execution and utilize the flexibility enabled by new regulations for equipment re-classification. With our DrillCon service, customers can move to a continuous class strategy and leave the 5 year recertification regime.

Essential for DrillCon is the execution of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) analyses, a maintenance analysis process currently ongoing for critical drilling equipment as a joint effort between DLS and the product groups in Operations. As an OEM, HMH has access to unique product knowledge and operational experience compared to 3rd party suppliers, giving us a competitive advantage.

Continuous maintenance optimization is enabled through condition monitoring, advisory and input from maintenance plan and strategy. In that way the rig owner will know the remaining useful life of the equipment. We advise on optimal maintenance and replacement schedule.


  • Condition based maintenance enablers
  • Optimized maintenance program
  • Up front scope of work definition for repairs/overhaul


Targeted, efficient and well executed maintenance is crucial for offshore operations. HMH’s unique Lifecycle Services are based on our extensive experience in offshore drilling. By gathering data from the rig’s monitoring system through our RiCon tool, we get the full overview. The system helps us to identify where to focus maintenance and when it’s time for an overhaul. Our methodology reduces inspection costs, while still qualifying for DNV GL Drill and ABS CDS notations, same as with the traditional maintenance model.


HMH’s data collection and storage products are designed to record, store and replicate drilling information, enabling in-depth operation analysis. Our Riglogger™ collects data to identify potential performance optimization, further improving drilling efficiency. The drilling data interface system allows third party applications to integrate with it to efficiently analyze and share data.
