Steamships Shipping to install Marine Software

  • Friday, 06 January 2012 | News

Steamships Shipping in Papua New Guinea is to install the MPM - Marine Planned Maintenance and MSK - Marine Storekeeper software systems from UK company Marine Software for the control and management of 13 vessels.

Steamships Shipping currently operates a range of multi-purpose cargo vessels ranging from 400 to 6,000 dwt, including tugs, landing craft and an environmental research vessel.

The software will be primarily installed on three of its larger vessels, namely Hiri Chief, Obo Chief and Kiunga Chief, with the remaining vessels being operated ashore in 'Master' mode within the central fleet office software.

The company says that this type of configuration offered a greater degree of operational flexibility, as there was no requirement to install physical software onboard the smaller vessels.

All software was installed during a recent Marine Software training visit to Steamships' Port Moresby technical office.
