d’Amico Società di Navigazione has chosen ABS Nautical Systems (ABS NS) for the implementation of NS Enterprise across its entire fleet of ships.

NS Enterprise is a fleet management software system for digital marine operations.

ABS NS and d’Amico Group will work jointly to substitute the client’s current legacy software, bringing digital transformation across the organisation and marine assets.

The data-driven and reliability-based software will support faster, more accurate decision making for better compliance and safety across all shipping operations.

ABS Nautical Systems president Evan Gooch said: “We look forward to partnering with d’Amico Group to support their digital journey. Our NS Enterprise software is designed around the needs of the mariner, and we are focused on helping clients with improved access and visibility to their data to meet critical operational and compliance challenges. We will work together to administer new technology and innovation that increases efficiency and reliability — an objective very important to d’Amico Group and their clients.”

d’Amico Società di Navigazione deputy technical director Cesare d’Api said: “As a world leader in maritime transportation, we are constantly focused on the quality of ship management. Excellence and reliability are crucial in our business and for our top clients. In line with our mission, we are constantly looking at the opportunities offered by the application of digital technologies and sharp analytics tools in maritime transportation. Such growing trends in digitalisation and mobile applications have clearly highlighted the need to move toward a change of tools for fleet management in order to exploit the value of data and information as assets.

“A data dashboards driven business model is a smart and practical way to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our maintenance processes. We are partnering with ABS NS because they have a unique combination of innovative software and maritime heritage. We look forward to deploying their software modules and mobile applications across our fleet of 70 vessels.”

In November, ABS and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) signed a joint development project (JDP) to deploy solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology as a replacement to at least one of three diesel generators typically on board a very large crude carrier (VLCC).

It is the second JDP between ABS and DSME in connection with SOFC technology.
