C Transport Maritime (CTM) has agreed a deal to roll out a new software package from Berlin-based Kaiko Systems across its entire fleet under technical management, consisting of 30 dry bulk carriers.
CTM will use the applications to streamline crew manual technical operations on board and make routine operations such as inspection and maintenance more data-driven and proactive. The deal was reached after the conclusion of a trial period to examine the system’s impact on vessel safety processes and its value in providing decision-support data.
“Speed and accuracy are key to technical management,” said Francesco Canepa, Technical Director at CTM.
“Kaiko Systems is able to verify and structure data into dynamic analysis automatically. This gives us visibility on how thorough our safety regime is carried out and allows us to identify off-hire risks and take action for our clients earlier.”
“On top of which, the Kaiko Systems team is fast and eager to absorb new ideas to continuously improve their offering. We expect that working with Kaiko Systems will bring further improvements to our fleet performance and operational efficiency.”
The software will additionally deliver a greater level of transparency for CTM clients, offering up-to-the-minute assessment of their vessels at both a macro and a granular level, including overall condition ratings, pictures, trends, and vessel health management processes.
