Sinochem to roll out new software systems

Sinochem has agreed two separate software deals to add new systems across its entire fleet of chemical tankers, having agreed a contract to implement DNV GL’s fleet management software ShipManager while also signing a long-term agreement with Seagull Maritime to deliver onboard training.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Sinochem operates its vessels from subsidiary Aoxing Shipmanagement’s offices in Shanghai, Singapore and Japan, which will now be integrated with the ShipManager system, replacing the internally-developed systems previously used.

“As an international player in shipping, we require a global fleet management system to manage vessels in a differentiated, best-in-class manner, ensuring that all functional areas are integrated,” said Sinochem International Logistics vice general manager, Zhang Xin.

“Our business relies highly on a flexible, intelligent and standardised fleet management system. Therefore, we have decided to launch the project to work closely with DNV GL. Together we will implement ShipManager to meet all our current and future requirements.”

In addition to ShipManager, Sinochem will also use DNV GL’s Navigator Insight, an MRV-ready reporting package.

On the e-Learning side meanwhile, Sinochem will initially roll out a selected library of Seagull training modules and reflective learning films across the fleet, several of which will be delivered with Chinese translation and subtitles.

“There has been a shortage of skilled officers and crew to the chemical tanker industry for some years now and we see that this investment in a quality training system from Seagull Maritime is just as much an investment in our most valued assets – our people,” said Mr Xin.{/mprestriction}
