P&O ferry installs Marine Software

  • Tuesday, 08 February 2011 | News

Marine Software has secured a contract with P&O Ferries for the supply of integrated ship management software for its latest 49,000 grt newbuild vessel 'Spirit of Britain', which has entered service on the Dover-Calais route.

This contract covers planned maintenance, stock control, procurement and safety management requirements, between both the vessel and central office systems.

P&O Ferries also ordered an integrated barcode solution for the MSK Spare Parts system, to enable quick stock checks and stock issuing.

During the vessel build at STX Europe's Rauma Shipyard, Marine Software was contracted to deliver a fully configured database covering all main machinery, safety equipment and Lloyds Register Class items.

A final database commissioning visit took place in Dover during berthing trials, where a successful handover of all systems took place. This preparatory work helped the crew to immediately be able to use the system upon final delivery.

As P&O Ferries CODA finance system already accepts Accruals from Marine Software’s OPS fleet procurement system, all ‘Spirit of Britain’ accruals will be integrated through the existing finance interface.

A sister vessel, the 'Spirit of France', is due to enter service in September 2011, and will be fully equipped with the same software solution.

Marine Software says it is now entering its fifth year of supplying fleet software systems for P&O Ferries, after successfully being awarded an 18 ship contract for centralising ship management operations back in 2005.
