Mimic achieves monitoring success

JF Mimic had adapted its specialist condition monitoring software for the full fleet of Stolt tankers.

Stolt, which operates the world’s largest fleet of chemical and parcel tankers, has announced that 75 vessels and its onshore head office will be supplied with JF Mimic’s condition monitoring software.

The standard Mimic suite which is used on major cruise liners (including Britannia and Harmony of the Seas) has been specially enhanced to meet Stolt’s demands for raw operating data to be collected onboard and sent automatically to head office, pushing alerts to users.

As a result, Stolt teams will have full oversight of vessel operations combined with data and communication flowing in both directions between the Mimic ship and the Mimic shore systems. This means the status of vessel and equipment condition can be communicated in real-time allowing for proactive and preventative maintenance to occur if necessary, reducing operational costs.

Martin Briddon, business development manager of JF Mimic says:

"Management and control of a 21st century maritime business demands unique solutions designed to supplement existing ship operating procedures. This Mimic software suite offers all the necessary tools for robust data manipulation and in-depth analysis of every maintenance task."

He adds:

"Connecting vessels to a central hub is now achievable, leading to full control of a fleet from one system."

Andres Casanova, Stolt’s maintenance and reliability manager says:

"This system will empower us to take the lead with proactive intervention and enhance our operational safety, so improving the technical reliability of our key assets."
