Cold and Warm Lay-Up


The decision to move forward with a Cold or Warm stack is expensive and inherently full of risk. Ocean Ridge Maritime can assist with:


  • Decision making process - Cold or Warm Stack

  • Communication with Class regarding "Freeze" of Survey Cycle

  • Preservation Planning including identifying Milestones and sequence of Preservation steps

  • Documentation of "Reactivation Considerations" necessary for an accurate Reactivation Plan



Ocean Ridge Maritime approaches every Preservation and Lay-Up Project with Reactivation in mind. All engagements use documentation that is designed to flow seamlessly from Planning, to Preservation, through Lay-Up and then during Reacitvation. Ocean Ridge Maritime will customize the documentation to your specific equipment and systems to ensure that it may be used as the starting point of a Reactivation Plan.

  • Asset Specific Equipment Preservation Records
