V.Group has launched a new risk analysis tool to improve performance in Port State Control (PSC) inspections, leveraging data collected from the more than 1,000 PSC inspections carried out across the company’s fleet each year.
The PSC Performance Analyser highlights all the risks facing a vessel when preparing for a survey, to allow staff to take proactive action. Using the new tool, V.Group says that it has been able to achieve 83% flawless Port State Control inspections up to the end of quarter two.
The system can monitor trends by country and individual ports, and breaks the data down by office / fleet / customer, with performance analysed by Class Society and by Flag State. Data is displayed within an interactive dashboard.
“With a constantly evolving environment, the need to drive vessel safety and environmentally compliant operations has never been greater. Our new platform uses technology as well as our own in-depth knowledge to provide data to help make the decisions that matter, maximising operational efficiency on behalf of our customers,” said Mike Bradshaw, Global Head of HSEQ at V.Group.
“Our PSC Performance Analyser tool not only looks back over past performance but also looks ahead, highlighting any potential risks ahead of arrival to ensure all management processes are prepared and ready in the selected country. This tool will prove key in continually striving for PSC excellence.”
The launch of the PSC platform follows the recent announcement of V.Group’s new risk-based SIRE Performance analysis platform.
