Ship Management Challenges

  • Maintenance of LPG and LNG ships can be tricky and dangerous if not done following the proper maintenance guidelines
  • Documentation and communication onshore and on ship have to be in line and up to date
  • Crew members have different skills, preferences and tasks to fulfill. When composing a crew, the right skills have to be aligned.
  • On board supplies and repair tools have to be ready at dock in different countries. This should be manageable in one application
