Blue Marine signs eight-ship software deal

Mexico-based offshore services supplier Blue Marine has signed a new contract with Logimatic to implement the SERTICA fleet management software system on eight of the company’s vessels.

Blue Marine was already a SERTICA client and will use the application to improve maintenance procedures by providing wider access to its database with information about previous maintenance jobs, use of spare parts, and planned maintenance projects.

The SERTICA database also contains a range of physical information about the ship and its maintenance from previous owners, for historical analysis.

“We know the software, we like it and are very confident on this new contract; our crew is familiar with the system and expect to have an easy transition,” said Joiser Ramirez Conde, Fleet Superintendent at Blue Marine. 

Blue Marine has the largest fleet by tonnage in Mexico, split across a range of vessels, such as tankers, offshore supply vessels, FPSO, maintenance and construction. It is part of the Durandco Industrial Group, with more than 1200 employees in the country.

“Taking over the SERTICA database means that Blue Marine does not need to start from scratch structuring all data, components, items and much more,” said Pablo Grez, SERTICA Regional Manager in Latin America.

“They can easily adjust and continue the maintenance plans scheduled in SERTICA. The Analytics and Task List modules will without a doubt support Blue Marine in optimising process flows and subsequent analysis.”
