Wallem opts for BASSnet fleet management suite

Wallem Group has selected a complete suite of integrated software from BASSnet Fleet Management Systems to manage its entire fleet of more than 180 ships.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Wallem will use the BASSnet suite of products as a total solution for maintenance, safety, operational and financial management and more on a fleet-wide basis. BASSnet products incorporate modular features with progressive and responsive web applications and mobile apps. The fleet management systems provide an overall bird’s eye view of fleet performance and highlight areas for improvement. “This makes BASSnet the ideal one-stop solution to streamline and increase fleet efficiency, asset management, and safety,” said Per Steinar Upsaker, CEO and managing director of BASSnet.

The integrated nature, functionality and technological strategy of BASSnet are reported as key elements in Wallem’s decision to sign with BASS. For BASS, this partnership marks a key milestone and signals a wider move to complete enterprise solutions in the maritime industry as a means to effectively standardise ship processes.

“Having run several maritime software companies and considering the complexities of operations, compliance and the regulatory environment, I was keen to not reinvent the wheel,” said Frank Coles, CEO of Wallem Group. “We have chosen to install a cloud-based COTS solution, without customisation.  Exactly how digitalisation is supposed to be done.  We are going to defy the myth that ship operations and management needs to be different, or somehow special.  It does not need all the disparate or heavily customised homegrown systems.  This is the stuff of myths created by a lack of understanding or appreciation and old fashioned operational techniques.”

“In my view, offering transparency, analytics and business intelligence is the way forward for high-performance fleet management, and implementing a complete enterprise solution from BASSnet will allow us to integrate the power of big data with our business processes,” added Coles.

“BASSnet Fleet Management Systems is a complete solution that removes the reliance on multiple vendors for piecemeal software,” noted Per Steinar Upsaker. “We have prioritised a well-thought-out strategy that is forward-looking, comprehensive and puts BASSnet in a unique position. This includes the incredible convenience and security of managing an entire fleet using a single database on a state of the art platform.”

  • i4sea signs up as Inmarsat Fleet Data provider

    Brazil-based startup i4sea and Inmarsat have signed an agreement for i4sea to join a group of certified application providers to provide a dedicated application for Inmarsat’s Fleet Data service.

    Fleet Data collects data from onboard sensors, pre-processes that data, and uploads it to a central cloud-based database, equipped with a dashboard and an Application Programming Interface (API).

    The partnership came as a result of the Bluetech Accelerator, a program created by the Portuguese Ministry of the Sea in 2019 to create an ecosystem of maritime innovation and business acceleration. i4sea was one of 20 startups around the world – and the only one from Latin America - selected to develop pilot projects with maritime market leaders including Inmarsat.

    Headquartered in Salvador, Brazil and with offices in São Paulo, Shanghai and London, i4sea will provide a high-precision sea and weather forecasting application with up to seven days forecasting in advance through i4cast’s Atm Ocean tool.

    “As a Certified Application Provider, we will be constantly developing new features to generate increasingly powerful tools for the maritime market,” said i4sea CEO Bruno Balbi. “Working with a company like Inmarsat is really a great deal for i4sea and this is the first smart system that integrates in a single platform, all the essential tools to support decision making regarding vessel’s maneuvers and port terminal’s operations,” he said.

    Six integrated tools are offered and includes services such as ocean and weather hyperlocal forecasts, dynamic draft prediction, terminal efficiency analytics and analysis and prediction of siltation or erosion dynamics of the seabed.

    “We are delighted to be working with such an innovative start-up such as i4Sea, a company we worked with as part of the Portuguese Bluetech accelerator programme earlier this year,” said Marco Cristoforo Camporeale, head of digital Solutions, Inmarsat Maritime. “

    “This tie-up will allow ship operators and managers to both route plan and improve terminal efficiency and this is all achieved through the i4sea application on Fleet Data and via a secure platform that is fully scalable, fleet-wide and now commercially available on both Fleet Xpress and FleetBroadband,” said Mr Camporeale.

    Currently, i4sea's clients include Brazilian companies such as TECON Salvador (Wilson, Sons), Açu Petróleo, CSN Coal and Ore Terminal, Cotegipe Port, Bahia’s Maritime Authority, Itajaí Port, Enseada, among others. There are also international contracts with the ports of Leixões and Sines, in Portugal.
