Marine Software for eco dredger
U.K. based Marine Software Ltd has recently supplied Cemex UK Marine with the MPM - Marine Planned Maintenance for Windows software for its newbuild vessel ‘CEMEX Go Innovation’.
The contract for this Damen Marine Aggregate Dredger (MAD) 3500 vessel, the first in the next generation of environmentally designed dredgers, was signed by Cemex in January 2018 with delivery being scheduled in late 2019 from Damen Shipyards Galati, Romania. Designed to extract sand and gravel from the sea bed up to depths of 55 metres, this 103.25 metre vessel has a cargo capacity of 6,600 tonnes.
Classed by Lloyds Register with UK Flag, vessel also boasts a state of the art dredging system with Tier III compliant main engines.
Cemex UK Marine is one of the leading companies supplying marine aggregates to the British and European construction industry.
A Cemex UK Marine representative said: “Cemex now a seasoned user of Marine Software’s products has found in nearly ten years of collaboration that the personal service provided to the Cemex fleet has been invaluable. Coupled with the ability of this company to adapt, update and modify their applications to suit our individual requirements has been second to none, a quality often lacking in much larger software providers.
Based on this long-standing partnership and the quality and personal service, Cemex had no hesitation in wanting to incorporate the Marine Planned Maintenance, Marine Storekeeper, Marine Purchasing and Marine Safety & Document Manager range of products into its vessel under construction to ensure continuity and integration of the vessel’s management, systems which our seafarers of all IT competencies find practical to use”.
