  • An opportunity maintenance model is proposed for semi-active heave compensation system.
  • The importance theory is applied into the opportunistic maintenance model.
  • The joint integrated importance measure between different components is analyzed.
  • The JIIM is used as the basis for preventive maintenance of components.
  • The effectiveness of JIIM-based OM in terms of expected system performance is verified.
In the marine industry, heave compensation systems are applied to marine equipment to compensate for the adverse effects of waves and the hydraulic system is usually used as the power system of heave compensation systems. This article introduces importance theory to the opportunistic maintenance (OM) strategy to provide guidance for the maintenance of heave compensation systems. The working principle of a semi-active heave compensation system and the specific working states of its hydraulic components are also first explained. Opportunistic maintenance is applied to the semi-active heave compensation system. Moreover, the joint integrated importance measure (JIIM) between different components at different moments is analyzed and used as the basis for the selection of components on which to perform PM, with the ultimate goal of delaying the degradation of the expected performance of the system. Finally, compared with conditional marginal reliability importance (CMRI)-based OM, the effectiveness of JIIM-based OM is verified by the Monte Carlo method.
