BMT Smart (BMT), the specialist fleet and vessel performance management arm of BMT Group, has secured a new contract with Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI).

The company will supply vessel performance monitoring systems for four VLCC’s for a Greek owner which comes on the back of current orders already received from SHI for seven Suezmax and Aframax tankers for Norwegian and Singapore owners.

“BMT has secured several projects with SHI based on a strong reputation of delivering high quality products,” said Mr Chang Su Lee, sales director at Marbiss, BMT’s local agent in Korea.

BMT will provide SHI with its modular vessel performance monitoring solution, SMART VESSEL, which collects analogue and serial feeds before transferring the data to BMT’s cloud based performance monitoring solution, SMARTFLEET.

Data experts at BMT then interpret the data to determine true underlying performance of the vessels.

Peter Mantel, managing director of BMT Smart, added: “This is a great win for us and we appreciate the support our service partners, Marbiss and Intra Mare Hellas provided to help us secure these projects.”

“In a world where we are inundated with data, it’s critical that we focus on providing a solution that helps to transform this complex information into actionable insights – only then can owners and operators truly begin to enhance operational efficiency and profitability.”

This contract will also see BMT providing the Shaft Power Torque Meter (SPTM) to these vessels.
