Consolidated Marine Management Inc., based in Piraeus, Greece, will implement the Energy & Environmental Manager and Hull Inspection modules on four of its ABS-classed newbuilds, as well as an additional vessel that transferred its class to ABS. Consolidated Marine Management operates a fleet of product tankers and LPG carriers.
C Transport Maritime S.A.M., based in Monte Carlo, Monaco, will implement the Energy & Environmental Manager and Hull Inspection modules on seven of its ABS-classed newbuilds. C Transport Maritime manages ships for a number of ship operators.
All three companies have taken advantage of the ABS Newbuild Program, which offers complimentary software to ABS-classed vessels built after January 1, 2009. The NS5 Enterprise software gives owners and operators the ability to streamline processes and efficiencies while providing a more cost-efficient and effective method to monitoring long-term maintenance and integrity.
