DNV’s hull integrity system now integrated with AMOS

DNV and AMOS system supplier SpecTec have launched an all-in-one planned inspection and maintenance system for ship structures. AMOS is a system that crew and management are already familiar with, and in combination with DNV’s Hull Integrity Management system, the software’s accessibility further simplifies inspection planning, reporting and monitoring.

The new combined application uses the DNV vessel-specific hull inspection forms and procedures that come as part of the Hull Integrity Management (HIM) system. The easy-to-use software has unique 3D inspection and reporting functionality that helps with the early detection of defects so they can be dealt with before they lead to costly off-hire time.

HIM adds a further dimension to the AMOS planned maintenance system which supports tasks such as maintenance, efficient spare parts logistics and the production of quality and safety documentation. A vessel structure model is established in the AMOS component hierarchy, and it is combined with HIM’s vessel-specific hull inspection information and any diagrams showing areas that require special attention.

According to Richard Tao, DNV’s HIM service development manager, HIM gives shipowners an easy to use platform to plan, manage and input data gathered during routine on-board hull inspections. It eases the implementation and enhances the control and monitoring.. “Hull inspection planning and monitoring is critical to vessel safety, and our partnership with SpecTec brings connectivity and functionality that meets the growing needs in the industry,” he says.

Hull inspection data is automatically synchronised by AMOS data communication so that it is available to crew, managers, charterers, inspectors and specialists. The system meets ISM, TSMA, OVMSA, OCIMF and vetting requirements.
