Viking Line implements new fleet management software

Finland’s Viking Line reports that it is currently completing the installation of a new fleet management system aboard its newbuild Viking Glory, an eco-friendly passenger ship that will enter service in 2022.

The software roll-out is the result of a deal between Viking Line and Danish company Logimatic, which will see the SERTICA system, including maintenance, procurement and safety modules, implemented on six existing vessels as well as the Viking Glory.

“We are looking forward to start using SERTICA. I believe the app will have great impact on our daily work as it supports us both in maintenance and in relation to inspections. In the end, this means improved safety and comfort to our passengers,” said Jonas Rosenqvist, Technical Superintendent at Viking Line.

“We have successfully cleaned and migrated our existing data, and now we are analysing how to include the newbuild into our existing data structure.”

The LNG-powered Viking Glory will use ABB’s Azipod electric propulsion system and new multi-fuel engines from Wärtsilä to be as energy efficient as possible. The vessel will also be able to convert both waste heat from the vessel’s engines and waste cooling power from liquefied natural gas into electricity.
