China’s chemical tanker owner Sinochem International Logistics is implementing DNV GL’s data smart fleet management system ShipManager on its entire fleet of 80 vessels, in an effort to optimize operations and improve performance and efficiency.
The move is part of an agreement signed between the parties in April at the opening of DNV GL’s near-zero-emission Green Office Centre in Shanghai.
Sinochem Shipping operates its vessels from subsidiary Aoxing Shipmanagement offices in Shanghai, Singapore and Japan. The company “will now benefit from a standardized and integrated system for operating a growing global fleet,” according to DNV GL.
“We require a global fleet management system to manage vessels in a differentiated, best-in-class manner, ensuring that all functional areas are integrated,” Zhang Xin, Vice General Manager, Sinochem International Logistics, said.
“Our business relies highly on a flexible, intelligent and standardized fleet management system. Therefore, we have decided to launch the project to work closely with DNV GL. Together we will implement ShipManager to meet all our current and future requirements,” Xin added.
The ShipManager fleet management solution including the Technical, Procurement, Crewing, QHSE and Analyzer modules, supports vessels and fleets in all technical, operational and compliance aspects, DNV GL informed.
Additionally, Sinochem will use DNV GL’s Navigator Insight, an MRV-ready reporting solution covering operational needs. Navigator Insight feeds data to different stakeholders in addition to the ECO Insight fleet performance portal.
