    SafeNet software for FPSO

    Vessel & ROV News // June 29, 2001
    ABS Nautical Systems has been selected by Monaco-based Single Buoy Moorings (SBM) to provide its ABS SafeNet hull maintenance management software for an FPSO (floating production/offloading storage) vessel, currently under conversion.

    The Amazon Falcon, a former tanker, is undergoing conversion at Keppel Fels shipyard in Singapore. It is the first SBM vessel to utilise this type of operational management software.

    The hull maintenance module is one of a suite of integrated fleet operational management programs available from ABS Nautical Systems. It provides a comprehensive system by which an operator can monitor the condition of a vessel's hull structure throughout its working life. It includes a complete technical model of the vessel, its structural data and survey history including details on all repairs and modifications.

    ABS NS has already modelled the main cargo block of the Amazon Falcon. This computer modelling has returned immediate dividends as it has enabled more efficient on-site management of the shipyard conversion project.
