UK tanker installs planned maintenance system

  • Friday, 25 February 2011 | News

Marine Software reports that it has supplied its MPM - Marine Planned Maintenance system to UK-based John H Whitaker Tankers, to be installed onboard the company's latest 2,779 dwt bunker barge 'Whithaven'.

Whitaker Tankers is a fuel transportation company operating a fleet of inland barges and sea going tankers in UK and European waters.

John H Whitaker's two technical offices in the UK, in Hull and Southampton, had already been equipped with the shore based version of the software, OPM - Office Planned Maintenance.

Installation of the vessel system will allow the Whithaven to be connected to both offices via an upgrade from the Marine Software website.

Once updated, regular data transfer updates from the new vessel will be e-mailed to the main technical office for overall management review.

This latest software delivery brings the number of Marine Planned Maintenance systems delivered to Whitaker to ten, with Marine Software supplying the tanker fleet for the last 10 years.

Whitaker Tankers said, in a statement: "The Marine Software Planned Maintenance System was an ideal choice for our tanker fleet, as it offers ease of use and simplicity for the crew."

"Good quality management reporting is easily accessible from our central fleet office system, ensuring we keep up-to-date with fleet PM status. The software is backed up by rapid technical support from Marine Software, so we had no hesitation equipping our latest tanker with this product."
