Shanghai: Pacific Basin is to implement DNV GL’s ShipManager fleet management system on its owned fleet within the next two years.
The company, which owns and operates 81 bulk carriers, will use six integrated ShipManager modules: Technical, Procurement, Project, Crewing, QHSE and Analyzer.
The modules will be used in generating operational expenditure (OPEX) reports and in monitoring KPIs. The Analyzer module extracts data from all ShipManager modules for data mining and analysis, and will be used in decision-making processes.
“This is expected to reduce a lot of manual work and give our fleet managers all information in one place for management of data and trends. The system also allows the integration of data from previous solutions,” says Raghvendra Lavania, project manager of Pacific Basin.
“The system is easy to learn, user-friendly and technically innovative,” Lavania continues. “ShipManager will integrate to our new accounting system and provide customised reports to manage our fleet efficiently.”
Pacific Basin owns and operates the world's largest fleet of Handysize bulk carriers, which comprises 66 vessels, plus one Handymax, 13 Supramax ships and another post-Panamax bulker. [07/01/15]
