Euronav software implementation project begins

Euronav has begun the rollout of the SERTICA maritime software platform from Logimatic across its fleet of approximately 50 vessels, with the first ship in the programme now successfully installed.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Euronav has offices in both Antwerp and Athens, with the tanker vessels managed from the Athens office while the FSO and VPLUS vessels are managed from Antwerp. Logimatic says that implementation across all of the vessels is expected to be completed within four months.

“It is our ambition to be in greater control of our processes by creating an overview of the entire fleet in SERTICA,” said Rudi Vander Eyken, group IT manager at Euronav.

“We follow an ambitious project plan and on top of this, we have just added six additional vessels acquired recently. However, converting to SERTICA on the first vessel has been very efficient, so I am confident that SERTICA is live on all vessels in four months as planned.”

As well as applying the application to its maintenance, procurement and safety functions, Euronav will be using the newly developed Master Data Management module as part of its software package, which is used to manage data on jobs, spare parts, documentation and components.

“Today, the seafarers must comply with regulations, follow specific processes and deliver reports. To do this, they need a simple tool for reporting and for gathering all this data,” said Maria Roussou, technical superintendent at Euronav.

“Luckily, SERTICA is a user-friendly system, so the seafarers spend limited time on reporting and more time on performing their tasks.”

“One thing is the training of the system, another is deciding internal processes and workflows. Sometimes the system needs to adjust to our processes and other times it may be more efficient if we adjust our procedures to the system.”{/mprestriction}
