It helps to improve machine efficiency and ensures timely repair of machines by keeping a constant watch on their condition, and identifying errors before they can cause problems. With this in mind, Nor-Shipping is the ideal event for SKF and SKF Blohm + Voss Industries to present their market leading marine solutions together.”
