PT. Odyssey Shipping’s vessels are chartered out to Indonesia’s national oil company Pertamina on long-term contracts, and the company will now operate its two tankers using the BASSnet Maintenance system.
BASSnet Maintenance creates a planned or structured maintenance system that handles vessels’ components, spares lists and job maintenance procedures.
BASS says that the system allows for timely and accurate reporting of vessel maintenance information along with key data that is constantly updated. All components, including a list of spare parts, transfer of materials and maintenance jobs impacting ships are fed into the system. Users can also attach additional information including photographs, measurements and reports.
“We anticipate substantial productivity improvement through the streamlining of work processes that is enabled by the BASSnet Maintenance software,” said PT. Odyssey Shipping’s president director, Albert Kindangen.
PT. Odyssey Shipping will use the software to have vessel information automatically transferred to the company’s office database, making it easier to manage the maintenance history of the vessel, both on board as well as in the office.
A Planner Filter feature included in the software will be used to separate jobs based on their priority ranking. The Planner screen gives users an overview of the maintenance tasks ahead, showing the scheduled jobs based on the filters that are specified.
Once a job is concluded, the reporting system offers an option to move the concluded job to its ‘history’ list. This ‘move to history’ option is solely controlled by the Master/Chief engineer on board a vessel, or the superintendent in the office who reviews the job reporting and makes any corrections or additions as required.
The system also offers a subcomponent function, for movable equipment that has its own life cycle and maintenance programmes. This submodule will plan the maintenance of these particular items by keeping track of running hours separately, to monitor items such as, for example, main engine pistons and exhaust valves.
For BASS, the tie-up with PT. Odyssey Shipping comes a few months after it first entered the Indonesian market, having agreed a deal with PT. Pelita Samudera Shipping in mid-December last year.
“We are very much encouraged that the promising Indonesian market is responding to the BASSnet advantage,” said Chris Long, BASS’ regional sales manager responsible for the Indonesian market.
