U.K. based Marine Software Ltd have recently supplied Gosport Ferry with the OPMWin - Office Planned Maintenance system to streamline maintenance planning for their Class IV, V & VI passenger Ferries.
Built between 1966 and 2015, these 30m/32m vessels have Twin Schottel/Veth Z-Drive propulsion systems and operate daily between Gosport & Portsmouth Harbour.
The OPMWin software will be installed ashore and used to centrally manage on-going fleet maintenance for "Harbour Spirit", "Spirit of Portsmouth", "Spirit of Gosport" and "Gosport Queen".
Gosport Ferry comments;
We selected the Marine Software OPM Software in order to better organise extremely able and competent staff in the ongoing scheduled maintenance of our vessels. Ultimately, when the system databases have been correctly populated we should be generating daily work cards for engineering staff to better utilise their time and to provide timely reminders of essential and non-essential maintenance tasks.
