Strategic asset management for naval bases and shipyards

Asset management consulting to optimise and future proof your defence facility.
Strategic asset management for naval bases and shipyards

As defence assets and infrastructure age, it’s difficult to keep track of their condition and compliance. Without a strategic view, investments could be wasted, performance might degrade, and you may be unable to offer the support fleets need. But long-term thinking is difficult when defence – and the climate – are changing.

At Royal HaskoningDHV, we’re here to give you a clearer perspective. It’ll mean you can make better strategic decisions, prioritise investments that enhance asset value, and deliver support advantage.

Our global network of 650 dedicated maritime personnel can help you to pursue ISO 55000, optimise the value and safety of data and infrastructure, or reducing waste. And with First Maritime International’s benchmarking and productivity improvement, we’ll help you get the most from your assets and investments – today and tomorrow.

Specialist asset management support for naval bases and other defence facilities

Maximise the value from your asset investments

Every asset in your base should contribute to your operational goals – and that means optimising productivity, safety, suitability, and cost. We can help you to stay compliant with changing legislation, deliver efficiencies, improve sustainability, and keep pace with changing naval capabilities.

Build flexibility to meet an unpredictable workload

In an inherently changeable working environment, it’s easy to focus on the next project, rather than your own infrastructure – but your assets are critical to the flexible capacity you need. We’ll help you get ahead of changing defence requirements – and maximise asset value in a limited space.

Maintain operational readiness while balancing multiple objectives

Naval vessels rely on your infrastructure to sustain operational readiness – so it’s essential your assets can always deliver. But that’s easier said than done while you’re also meeting objectives for sustainability and cost. We’ll help you find the best ways to focus resources that support operations.

Optimising maritime asset management

The maritime industry is evolving fast – so maximising your long-term return from port and shipyard asset investments is tougher than ever.
