Great Lakes Dredge & Dock implements ABS application

The Great Lakes Dredge & Dock (GLDD) Company is to roll out the NS Workboat application from classification society ABS across its fleet of approximately 40 vessels, to be used to manage Subchapter M regulatory compliance.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The system can be used by crew to perform work order completions, checklist-based inspections and audits, and to identify critical equipment history on the move during vessel operations.

“We developed NS Workboat app as the mobile solution to bridge the gap between onshore and onboard collaboration so data, captured from daily operational tasks, provides insights leading to smarter management decision making,” said ABS Nautical Systems COO, Stephen Schwarz.

“Our mobile software is simplifying how operational and compliance data is captured, managed and reported through a user interface that is easy to use for all levels of an organisation.”

NS Workboat is delivered with pre-configured SubM data sets to facilitate faster implementation and ensure compatibility with all compliance path options (USCG, TSMS, RCP, and ISM).

“We see this new technology not only helping GLDD transition smoothly into Subchapter M compliance, but also significantly improving the day-to-day management of our vessel operations,” said Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company manager Tim Kirby.{/mprestriction}
