Considering the need of customer to retain their maritime assets as long as possible, Tasneef has the capacity to conduct detailed surveys on vessels and provide ratifications recommendation to ensure their structure, equipment and machinery are meeting classification requirements and IMO rules, even when these assets have passed their design operating life. Life extension can be applied on commercial vessels, military vessels and offshore platforms. This approach is essential to support our customers financially, especially during economic crisis, in addition, to preserve out environment from the unfavorable option of scrapping vessels while their life could be extended with reasonable cost.

Companies are eager to be competitive in the maritime market to win business, that require flexibility in altering type of services provided in the maritime business.
Flexibility means sometime modifying the maritime assets to meet new business requirements or new regulations. Tasneef with their understanding of maritime business needs and regulations, will advise owners on the best way to modify their maritime assets, also considering improvements to the existing capability of the vessels, so owners can remain modest in the maritime business.

The Arabian Gulf has an aggressive marine environment due to the high salinity of the seawater, high temperature and high humidity. Corrosion can be a major factor in reducing the maritime assets life and degrading its performance plus triggering high repair costs.

Tasneef can advise owners on proper corrosion protection methodology before the construction of the maritime assets or during service to ensure maximum life cycle with minimum repair cost. Our expertise can investigate the cause of the corrosion and advise on proper coating protection scheme and/or required Cathodic Protection to ensure the maritime assets have comprehensive corrosion protection methodology.

Since Maritime Assets are getting more expensive, and instrumentation and information systems tend to become cheaper and more reliable, CBM becomes an important tool for operating vessels in an optimal manner. Better operations will lead to lower production cost and lower use of resources. CBM objective is to maintain the correct equipment at the right time. CBM is based on using realtime data to prioritize and optimize maintenance resources. Tasneef will use the right systems and tools to determine the equipment's health, and recommend when maintenance is actually necessary.
