The cranes are to be installed on 10 new Grieg Star L-class vessels currently under construction and expected to be delivered between 2012 and 2014.
The contract will see the first AMOS ship database built from Shipdex data delivered before the end of September, covering the MacGregor crane equipment only.
The first step of the project involves the validation of the MacGregor Shipdex dataset, which will be followed by mapping of related SFI Codes. The data will then be imported into the AMOS database before a final check of the database completes the project.
“This is the Grieg Star’s first step into a new ‘documentation era’, where the technical manuals are supplied in a standardised electronic format by the most important manufacturers,” said Marco Vatteroni, SpecTec ILS manager and author of the Shipdex protocol.
“The same Shipdex data can be used to create the so-called Company Common Source Database (CSDB) that becomes the most important technical repository.”
