Cool Company adopts BASSnet to digitally manage LNG fleet dry docking activities

LNG vessel operator Cool Company Ltd (CoolCo) has agreed a deal with Norwegian maritime software firm BASS to implement the BASSnet Projects software module for planning, preparation and execution of dry dockings across its fleet of gas carriers.

“Our vessel managers can fully control the entire project optimising planning and execution with better fleet-wide overview to minimise costs. They can easily plan jobs and monitor progress across the fleet with daily reports. BASSnet’s business intelligence is also invaluable for cost analysis and savings,” said Øistein Dahl, COO of CoolCo”

“The ability to compare quotes within a single system helps us to stay cost efficient. We can also easily evaluate and identify the best yards for future projects.”

The software provides support for planning and monitoring of dry docking activities, with links to relevant PMS jobs for the whole fleet, and allows RFQs to be digitally sent to yards, with received quotes auto-populated back into the application for comparison.

The application will also automatically update the onboard maintenance system with a full history of the work performed for later reference during maintenance planning, class inspections and vetting inspections, and can analyse past dry dockings to support future planning and improvements.

“BASSnet is designed for end-to-end efficiency while fully controlling costs,” said Per Steinar Upsaker, CEO and Managing Director at BASS Software.

“It enables technical asset managers to comply with industry standards and regulations. They can tightly manage projects through systematic planning that optimises costs. They can also keep track of dry docking history onboard, a highly valuable benefit especially for oil tankers, chemical tankers and gas carriers that are subjected to extreme scrutiny by oil companies and authorities.”
