Carl Büttner deploys SERTICA to help manage tankers

Bremen based Carl Büttner Shipmanagement (CBS) has signed a contract with Logimatic to implement the Fleet Management System SERTICA onboard four tanker newbuildings.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}CBS has signed contract for SERTICA Maintenance, Procurement and Safety (HSQE), which means that both their technical people onboard the vessels and the people in the main office will be working in the same system.

“We need a system that works both in the office and onboard the vessels. It needs to be easy for our crew to use and shouldn’t be too complicated or academic. I see SERTICA as a user-friendly system with the same screen layout on all screens, which makes it easy to change from maintenance to procurement and for new users to adapt,” explained Carsten Lehfeld, project and process manager.

Jens Elung, project manager at Logimatic, stated: “SERTICA is a logical system with the same structure on all screens, so if you know one screen, you know them all. We will assist Carl Büttner in implementing a better data structure and update the existing tree structure to fit today’s challenges.”

“We know from more than 30 years of experience that shipping companies understand the value of high-quality data, but often lack the time and culture to enter data correctly. I am convinced that we, in partnership with Carl Büttner, will succeed in increasing the focus on data, both practically and culturally, to improve the internal workflows significantly,” said Jens Elung.{/mprestriction}

  • 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.
