BMT Group has announced the launch of a new commercial operating company which it says will focus on the provision of "innovative vessel performance management and decision support solutions for the maritime industry."

BMT SMART Ltd will draw on knowledge from around the BMT group of companies to help accelerate the delivery of a BMT SMARTSERVICES business line, with the aim of building a strong presence in digital shipping markets.

As Phil Thompson, BMT sector director for transport explains: "The new generation BMT SMARTSERVICES product suite is founded on a unique system that integrates comprehensive vessel recorded data with fully validated MetOcean (Meteorological and Oceanographic) data, including wind, wave and current values."

"Developed in collaboration with industry partners, ship owners, operators and charterers the services are designed to help reduce fuel costs and improve energy efficiency in operations."

As part of the company's development plans, BMT has appointed a new managing director, Peter Mantel, who previously worked at Transas and has extensive experience in digital and e-navigation shipping markets.

Commenting on his new role, Mr Mantel said that he was "delighted to join BMT and be given the opportunity to further develop BMT SMART."

"By working closely with our customers and responding to legislation and market demands, we are confident that we can deliver a robust portfolio of high value, information management services for the maritime industry."
