Nihar Associates is an Australian owned and operated engineering and consulting company that provides operations, maintenance, reliability, and integrity support to a variety of industries.

We have a flexible and mobile team of experienced engineers and professionals who operate globally to provide cost effective and value-adding services to clients.

Reliability Optimisation

We have an excellent track record of providing high-quality reliability-related services to clients.

Reliability is the driving force behind cost efficient and stable production.

Unfortunately, equipment failure, non-optimised maintenance, and human error are constant threats to reliability and profitability.

These threats need to be managed proactively to ensure that equipment condition, maintenance practices, and personnel work together to improve the operations of an asset, rather than hinder them.

Spares & Materials Management

We have extensive experience in providing a broad range of spares and materials management services to clients.

Effectively managing sparing and materials is vital to optimising operational costs and minimising downtime caused by material shortages.

Poorly managing spares and materials can lead to wasting money on unneeded parts, filling warehouses with parts that will never be used, and deferring maintenance activities until parts are ordered and delivered.

Maintenance Optimisation

We specialise in providing a wide range of maintenance-related services to clients.

Maintenance is one of the biggest factors that influence the profitability of a given facility, accounting for a significant percent of total operational costs.

Both under maintaining and over maintaining equipment can be costly (the cost of equipment failure is often more than the cost of maintenance, but maintaining equipment unnecessarily still costs money and can even induce failure).

So, it is crucial to find the right balance and make sure that equipment is being maintained appropriately.

Asset Management

We are highly skilled in providing a broad range of data management services to clients.

Effectively managing data is fundamental to ensuring that a company’s maintenance management system operates effectively, and facilitates the efficient maintenance of an asset.

Engineering Support

We have a long history of providing engineering support to companies who need short to medium term positions filled in their organisation.

Our engineers are well trained in their respective fields, and in the services that we provide.

We can supply engineers to perform a variety of roles, from on-site reliability and maintenance support, to office-based project management. 

Our quality management system is independently registered by QCSE with JAS-ANZ as meeting the requirements of ISO 9001:2015.
