DNV improves hull integrity system

12 Sep 2012

Det Norske Veritas (DNV), has launched a planned inspection and maintenance system for ship structures, in partnership with AMOS system supplier, SpecTec.

The new combined function uses the DNV hull inspection forms which are part of the Hull Integrity Management (HIM) system. The system allows unique 3D inspection to be made and reports functionality to help detect defects in a ship’s structure.  Combined with the AMOS system, it also provides vessel-specific hull information and creates diagrams so failing areas can be given the attention needed, saving costly off-hire time.  

Richard Tao, HIM service development manager. DNV, said: “Hull inspection planning and monitoring is critical to vessel safety, and our partnership with SpecTec brings connectivity and functionality that meets the growing needs in the industry.”

Giampiero Soncini, CEO, SpecTec, said: “Our cooperation with DNV adds the ability to provide structure related maintenance and monitoring so that the ship management can track structural and coating condition including repairs with statistics that can be benchmarked from vessel to fleet.”

The system also carries out maintenance tasks, efficient spare logistics and produces quality and safety documentation, making inspection planning, reporting and monitoring of the vessel easier for crew members, mangers, charterers and specialists, which in turn, improves the efficiency of the ship.
