Greek shipping company Seastar has agreed a deal to implement the Maindeck software system following the successful completion of a Proof-of-Concept project earlier this year.
Maindeck, a Norwegian-headquartered maritime technology company, offers a range of project management tools built specifically to help technical ship managers prepare and manage dry-docking projects. Jobs can be imported from vessel Planned Maintenance Systems and managed by crew or office staff on desktop or mobile.
Established in 1974, Seastar is a ship management company based in Athens with a fleet of 14 bulk carriers of various sizes.
“When Maindeck was initially presented to me I was intrigued by the many functions offered but sceptical as to whether it could be practical on a day-to-day basis within a hectic repair period. Its use within a challenging repair project quickly cleared my second thoughts,” said Kyriakos Pelekos, Fleet Manager at Seastar.
“The fact that the software is browser based and can be used from anywhere is a great asset to have. The mobile phone application is your main tool while on the field, providing a quick and simple way to update tasks and review past updates.”
“Multiple users can be added and provide updates that will contribute to the auto generated daily report that is especially useful when dealing with a multidisciplinary project.”
