“There is a great difference between being a small Norwegian company on its own and being part of the global distribution platform that KONGSBERG represents,” says Stig Linna, CEO of VesselMan. “For us, it is very important to be part of a secure, scalable platform. As part of KONGSBERG’s digital platform, we can concentrate on our core business and let KONGSBERG handle scalability, security issues – and all the other important things that customers have to take into consideration with a global, cloud-based solutions.”
We have the pleasure to announce that we have created the first version of the VesselMan Insight. It is a quarterly update from our side to let our customers know what we have been working on. This version summarizes the new features developed for Q1.
VesselMan is proud to announce that we have entered into a 2-year contract with Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS). The contract includes a Cloud Based Dry Docking Software, Technical Project Masterplan Builder and Scrubber Project module.
We are proud to announce that VesselMan has entered into an agreement with Meratus Line to use VesselMan to manage the docking process for their whole fleet of vessels.
We are proud to announce that VesselMan has entered into an agreement with UMMS Norway. Union Marine Management Services (UMMS) was established in 2012 in Singapore to provide quality ship management services to Ship Owners globally. Currently expanding outside of ASIA and have recently open office in Oslo, Norway. Presently UMMS manages more than 35 vessels for Ship Owners from Japan, Singapore, Greece, Norway, Isle of Man and Croatia. Majority of their vessels are Bulk Carriers but they also manage some PCTC Vessels and Container Vessels.
For dry docking and ship repairs one of the most-used software programs in the shipping world is a worksheet. They are used for big jobs — jobs they’re not meant for. It has its limitations that can have costly implications.
Creating new ways of thinking, sharing information, and collaborating with different players in shipping is key to providing better services to owners and managers. This is why we are now participating in a cooperation agreement with TrustedDocks.com, which will bring value to owners and managers.
VesselMan chief executive Glenn Edvardsen and chief operating officer and founder Stig Linna estimate that shipowners globally are forced to carry out about 20,000 or more dry-dockings, costing in the region of $75bn. So they see the cloud-based software for dry-docking of their Oslo-based technology company, which has already signed up shipowners with around 300 vessels in total, as a digital “no-brainer”: It simplifies, organises and cuts costs either for single projects or for entire fleets simultaneously.
