This initiative offers free software for up to 12 months on ABS-classed vessels built after 1 January 2009.
Tuofo Shipping Management Limited in China is to implement Hull Inspection, Maintenance & Repair and Energy & Environmental modules on two of its newly built tankers.
This will be a significant upgrade for the Fujian-based company, as it does not currently have a software system in place to manage these operations.
Sloman Neptun, a tanker company based in Bremen, Germany, will utilise the Hull Inspection and Maintenance & Repair modules on three of its newly built chemical tankers and will also install the Drawings Management module in its central office.
The system will be used to track and monitor the condition of the vessels.
In Greece, Stealth Maritime Corporation SA has also agreed to implement ABS Nautical Systems software, and will implement the Hull Inspection module on two of its liquefied petroleum gas vessels early next year.
