Stena RoRo has replaced two systems onboard its Stena Foreteller and Mont Ventoux with a new fleet management system from Logimatic.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Stena RoRo initially signed up to the Logimatic SERTICA Maintenance and Procurement but decided to add the Safety Management System in SERTICA to get full value of the solution. This enables Stena RoRo to work with one supplier and one system covering maintenance, procurement and safety.

From the day Stena RoRo signed the SERTICA contract with Logimatic, they had 5 weeks to convert the existing data from two different systems to SERTICA before a scheduled inspection.

“SERTICA was chosen to enable us to start operating the vessels from early March. Logimatic was the only supplier we felt that could deliver on the task. They were good at pushing us for data/information in order to meet the timeline, and we were able to influence the setup all the way,” said Niklas Andersson, manager technical operations at Stena RoRo.

“We are quite experienced in this game of converting data and we know that is a matter of time and skilled people – both from our side and the supplier. It turns out that Logimatic is highly skilled, which results in the most efficient data conversion I have experienced during my time at Stena RoRo.”

“The SERTICA team was eager to help us during the entire implementation process and they gave quick feedback. They know what they are doing and understand our business. It is always a challenge when going from two systems to one, but we quickly realised that Logimatic can convert practically anything,” added Mr Andersson.

Jens Elung, project manager at Logimatic, stated; “I must admit that converting data from two different systems in parallel was quite challenging. Due to the tight schedule, we had to man up, and our developers have been working both day and night to meet the deadline.”

Hans Chr. Jensen, head of sales at Logimatic, commented: “We are constantly consolidating our strong position as fleet management solution partner – and getting Stena RoRo as a customer strengthens this position even further. Stena has been on my wish list for many years and we are looking forward to a long and constructive relationship with this interesting company.”{/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.
