GL Maritime Software GmbH has unveiled HullManager, a ship management software and service package designed to enhance maintenance support by monitoring the complete hull integrity process.

The program can help verify maintenance and performance standards for charterers and facilitate compliance with critical maintenance benchmarks and regulations for owners and operators, the manufacturer says.

3D, Interactive Hull Assessment

HullManager focuses on monitoring and assessing the condition of a ship’s hull (tanks, cargo holds and coatings) throughout its lifecycle, based on information obtained by crew inspections and thickness measurements, GL reports.

HullManager software

A vessel-specific 3D model enables interactive use, such as marking an individual finding or adding a photo and descriptions. The software can be used intuitively by crew members and onshore technical inspectors and reduces the range of possible interpretations of any defects, the manufacturer says. HullManager also can provide thickness measurements.

The software is designed to facilitate the complete hull integrity process, from inspections to assessment and reporting, ensuring “that your ship is well maintained and that your charterers know it,” GL says in a release.

Features and Capabilities

GL reports that HullManager provides:

· Identical hull status information onboard and onshore, including a methodology to perform cost-effective inspections;

· Early warning when hull condition deteriorates;

· Up-to-date and consistent information, including a complete history of hull condition ready for any kind of survey, such as vetting inspections for a charterer or documentation for investors, bankers and potential buyers;

· Detailed knowledge of where and when inspections and repairs have to be performed;

· Reduction in maintenance efforts, repair costs and dry docking time;

· Fast overview of fleet status / comparison of ships of same series to avoid repeating problems with sister vessels;

· Standardized reporting and assessment for internal and external use;

· Support in adopting best practices for Tanker Management and Self Assessment (TMSA) and in fulfilling requirements of ISM 10.1 – 10.4; and

· Integration of resulting maintenance job with GL's ShipManager planned maintenance software

User Support

A Hull Survey Guideline features illustrations that highlight hotspots (areas that need special attention) and help to standardize assessments fleet wide.

A comprehensive Hull Monitoring seminar is designed to help participants optimize their inspections and documentation. Software user training and installation support crews and office staff ensure smooth handling of the software and compliance with that company’s inspection processes and policies.
