Condition monitoring for DOF

DOF is a shipping company for whom it is important to use the most cost-efficient maintenance solutions. The company, headquartered in Austevoll, uses condition-based maintenance on critical machinery on board their ships. This maintenance philosophy requires reliable and cost-effective condition monitoring.

Karsten Moholt AS is an approved service provider of condition monitoring in the form of vibration measurements and analysis. Both DNV GL and ABS have issued approvals. We deliver, install and implement systems for vibration measurement and monitoring. This allows us to perform remote diagnoses of measurement data and reports.

Condition-based maintenance greatly reduces unnecessary maintenance and prevents breakdowns, which in turn cuts costs for DOF as a customer.


DOF uses online and offline measurements of critical equipment to detect damages early and avoid breakdowns. Vibration measurements are also part of our strategy for condition-based maintenance on thrusters and other critical equipment.
– Ole K. Nordbø. Technical Manager, DOF Management AS
