RK Offshore agrees TM Master deal

Norwegian IT company Tero Marine has said that it has won a contract with RK Offshore Management Ltd to install its TM Master software on 26 offshore vessels.

The TM Master application includes crewing, maintenance, purchasing and stock control within the same system, with the aim of facilitating fleet management.

Under a five-year agreement, Singapore-headquartered RK Offshore will lease the software from Tero Marine for a contractually fixed annual sum, which has not been disclosed.

The Bergen-based developer says that the leasing contract covers 26 RK Offshore supply ships, with the possibility of extending this to an additional 15 vessels.

The company adds that implementation of its software on RK Offshore ships is in progress, and is expected to be completed by the end of this month.

“We aim to ensure the process is as error free as possible,” said Satish Kanakasabai, technical manager at the Tero Marine office in Singapore.

“For the system to deliver optimum performance from the word go, we make sure everyone using the software is properly trained first.”

Rupesh Tiwari, of RK Offshore, noted that the leasing element of the contract has been an attractive option because it helps to keep operating costs predictable.

“This gives us greater flexibility, as it means we do not have to make a heavy investment in advance,” he also said.

I am confident that our TM Master software will help optimise the management and compliance of their fleet.

We welcome both Consort Express Lines and Pacific Towing to our expanding customer community,” said Rune Lyngaas, Tero Marine’s CEO.

Secondly, TM Master was the most user friendly system so our crews will not have to undergo intensive training sessions,” said Chris De Villiers, COO of Consort Express Lines.

They were able to provide the right solutions to our needs and were pro-active in everything from pre-project documentation to implementation plan.” he added.

    Mr. De Villiers concluded that “In challenging times like these, we need to focus on keeping the ships sailing. Having a professional partner like we have found in Tero Marine is crucial.”

    “I am delighted to see that our focus on UX (User Experience) in every aspect of how we serve our customers is being acknowledged and rewarded.” Mr Lyngaas added.
