Ahrenkiel Steamship has chosen to implement DNV GL’s ShipManager software on its entire fleet of 60 vessels including container ships and bulk carriers, with the installation of the software scheduled to start this year.
The shipping group Ahrenkiel Steamship was formed this year after the merger of the Christian F. Ahrenkiel Group with a joint venture established by the MPC Group, thus bringing together the fleet of Ahrenkiel Shipmanagement, MPC Steamship and Thien & Heyenga.
“It was very important for us to find a reliable partner with a long experience in set up management systems in the shipping industry. After evaluating the market, and based on MPC Steamship’s previous experience with the Shipmanager software, DNV GL was the obvious partner of choice,” said Nick Topham, Managing Director at Ahrenkiel Steamship.
“We also looked at future development and improvement plans for the ShipManager solution, and we were further convinced by DNV GL’s road map.”
The ShipManager modules in use by Ahrenkiel Steamship are ShipManager Technical, ShipManager Procurement, ShipManager QHSE, ShipManager Crew and ShipManager Analyzer.
