DESB Marine is a hook up and commissioning (HUC) and topside maintenance outfit. It has selected the BASSnet Maintenance module to be used to create a planned maintenance system.
All components including a list of spare parts, transfer of materials and maintenance jobs impacting ships are fed into the system. Users can also supplement the information by including photographs, measurements and reports.
“We are highly impressed with BASSnet Maintenance because it has proven to add value to maritime and offshore services by streamlining operations,” said DESB Marine’s technical manager Douglas Foo.
“We expect to reap highly attractive savings.”
BASS notes that DESB Marine’s associate company, Perdana Petroleum Berhad, has been operating on the software since 2008. To date, Perdana Petroleum has installed this system on 12 of its vessels.
Dayang is a publicly traded company with a market capitalisation in excess of $1 billion, placing it among the largest oil and gas companies in the region. Earlier this year, it was the largest beneficiary of the Pan Malaysia HUC awards from Malaysia’s national oil company, Petronas, securing some 40 per cent of the jobs on offer.
“Our HUC and topside maintenance contracts will demand the total engagement of our resources, so it is critical to ensure that we are supported by a top-ranking software solutions provider with a track record for creating great value,” Mr Foo said.
