The UK-based software company says that the application will facilitate the production of drydock specifications and tenders, assist with final contractor selection, control repair works whilst in dock and produce docking reports (both historical and financial).
An office based system was also installed for the head office in Tallinn, as well as four Superintendent laptop systems. A two day training course was also provided in Tallinn by Marine Software for the ship’s senior officers and technical superintendents.
The ship system enables planning specifications to be produced on board, which are then sent to the Superintendent systems to be incorporated into the final Master Specification.
The existing Marine Planned Maintenance system on board the vessel can send details of scheduled maintenance and defects to the planning specification as well as incorporating directly entered dry dock jobs requested by the crew.
During the production process the Superintendent is able to send copies of the Master Specification to both the vessel and to head office, to enable oversight as it is compiled.
The final Master Specification is used to produce tenders and receive returns from all shipyards invited to tender.
As part of the implementation, a Master Tallink Specification was created by Marine Software for the Silja Europa from an existing Microsoft Word Specification. This will be used as a template to create future docking specifications.
A free contractor software version download is available with the invitation to tender to enable shipyards to enter prices electronically directly into the specification which can then be imported directly back into the Master Specification for tender evaluation.
The installation of the Marine Project Manager means that the Tallink-Silja vessels have now installed the entire range of software modules currently offered by Marine Software.
