Hapag-Lloyd will implement GL HullManager as their central monitoring and reporting tool for hull maintenance activities. GL HullManager is a part of DNV GL’s fleet management software portfolio and provides ship owners, managers and operators hull inspection and thickness measurement support. Ship owners can use the system to plan, track and implement the inspection strategies for their fleet. It provides significant benefits by reducing repair costs, demonstrating regulatory compliance and streamlining internal processes.

GL HullManager helps owners to keep track of the condition of their vessels' hull, on a ship specific 3D model complete with all of a ship’s structural details. It supports the complete hull integrity process, from inspections to reporting and condition assessments of tanks, cargo holds and coatings, throughout its entire lifecycle by means of crew inspections and thickness measurements. The use of the vessel-specific 3D model enables visualization and assessment of the hull’s structural condition. The crew can mark any coating or structural failures on the 3D model, such as marking an individual finding or adding a photo and descriptions, which can then be assessed by superintendents onshore.
The system can make information on the condition of hull structures available to any employee across the company, once the inspection results have been approved and synchronized. Stored in a lifecycle database, hull condition data for each individual vessel can be traced over time. Sister vessels from the same fleet can be compared easily. A dashboard overview of the entire ship makes it easy to pinpoint any critical findings by crew or third-party inspectors.

Since its introduction onto the market in 2011, GL HullManager has built an impressive user community of more than 350 vessels of all kinds worldwide. The system was recently upgraded with a mobile client version for use in compartments and upcoming extra features in development include an automatic proposal for the amount of steel to be replaced for a dry dock tender specification, integration of hatch cover tightness measurement results and hot spot marking functionality.

“We are convinced we can get an easier and faster overview of hull conditions across the fleet and much better preparation for dry dockings with GL HullManager.” Lutz-Michael Dyck, Director of Technical Fleet Management, said. Sebastian Eggert, the GL software account manager responsible for Hapag-Lloyd added, “We are very proud to welcome Hapag-Lloyd to our user community. Hapag-Lloyd set us a very stringent set of requirements they needed the system to meet and we are very glad we were able to match their expectations.” The project has already started and the teams look to deliver the first vessel groups this year.
