Autoload Stability Software on Olympic Zeus

Monday, June 08, 2009

Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) of Vancouver, Canada announced the sale of their onboard stability software, Autoload, to Olympic Shipping AS for their latest environmentally friendly new-build, Olympic Zeus.

Olympic Zeus is an anchor handling tug supply construction vessel designed by Ulstein Design AS and one of the biggest vessels of this type built by Ulstein Verft AS. Developed for advanced operations in deep sea conditions, Olympic Zeus operates with a new type of optimum fuel saving hybrid propulsion machinery which was developed by Ulstein Design AS.

ASC’s Autoload Stability and Load Planning software is installed on over 500 vessels world-wide. It is a robust, intuitive, easy to use program that offers a simple to understand display of key hydrostatic values that are critical for safe vessel loading. With minimal input from the user, the program provides a quick and accurate picture of vessel’s current stability status, loads and important margins. The user can then make critical decisions, while leaving the mathematical complexity to the computer.

ASC is a leader in the development of load planning software, loading instrument software and integrated CAD/CAM programs.
