Industry Database

UK company Marine Software reports that ferry operator Tallink-Silja Line has installed its Marine Project Manager on the Galaxy, Silja Serenade, Silja Symphony and Silja Europa.

This software is intended to facilitate the production of dry-docking specifications and tenders; to assist with final contractor selection, to control repair works in dock, and to produce docking reports, for historical and financial purposes. The installation included an office-based system for the head office in Tallinn, together with four superintendent laptop systems.

The ship system enables a planning specification to be produced on board, which can be sent to the office-based superintendent systems to be incorporated into the final master specification. The existing marine planned maintenance system on board the vessel can send details of scheduled maintenance and defects to the planning specification as well as incorporating directly entered dry dock jobs requested by the crew. During the production process the superintendent is able to send copies of the master specification to both the vessel and to head office. The final master specification is used to produce tenders and receive returns from all shipyards invited to tender. A free contractor version download is available with the invitation to tender to enable shipyards to enter prices electronically directly into the specification which can then be imported into the master specification for tender evaluation.

Marine Project Manager has been installed as the final part of a complete Marine Software suite. The other modules are Marine Planned Maintenance, Marine Storekeeper, Marine Purchasing System and Marine Safety & ISM Document Manager

As part of the supply, a ‘master Tallink specification’ was created by Marine Software for the Silja Europa from an existing Microsoft Word specification. This will be used as a template to create future docking specifications. A two-day training course was provided in Tallinn for the ship’s senior officers and technical superintendents.
