BMT Group's fleet and vessel performance management company BMT
SMART said it has secured a contract with shipbuilder Samsung
Heavy Industries (SHI) to supply vessel performance monitoring
systems for four very large crude carriers (VLCC) being built for
a Greek ship owner.
This latest contract comes on the back of current orders already
received from SHI for seven vessels (Suezmax and Aframax tankers)
for Norwegian and Singapore owners, BMT said.
BMT will provide SHI with its modular vessel performance
monitoring solution, SMART VESSEL, which collects analogue and
serial feeds before transferring the data to BMT's cloud based
performance monitoring solution, SMARTFLEET. BMT's data experts
will then interpret the data to determine true underlying
performance of the vessels. This contract will also see BMT
providing the Shaft Power Torque Meter (SPTM) to these vessels.
Peter Mantel, Managing Director of BMT SMART, said, "This is a
great win for us and we appreciate the support our service
partners, Marbiss and Intra Mare Hellas provided to help us
secure these projects. In a world where we are inundated with
data, it's critical that we focus on providing a solution that
helps to transform this complex information into actionable
insights - only then can owners and operators truly begin to
enhance operational efficiency and profitability."
Chang Su Lee, Sales Director at Marbiss, BMT's local agent in
Korea, said, "BMT has secured several projects with SHI based on
a strong reputation of delivering high quality products. Working
in partnership with BMT, we're looking forward to working with
SHI to ensure the solutions are fit for purpose and fulfill the
needs of their customers."
