U.K.-based Marine Software Ltd has delivered an MPM Marine Planned Maintenance upgrade to Tallink-Silja for installation onboard their Swedish flagged vessels "Silja Symphony" and "Galaxy."

Project "Systemtillsyn" is a way for the Swedish transport agency to devolve a large portion of their survey responsibility to the crews on Swedish flagged vessels. The Swedish Transport Agency has a survey guide book (THB) which contains all 480 survey items applicable to most types of Swedish flagged vessels giving surveyors guidance for each survey.

As most survey items are already covered by their MPM - Marine Planned Maintenance PMS system, Tallink asked Marine Software to integrate this additional STA survey requirement with the existing planned maintenance database.

Marine Software was able to produce an additional module, which incorporated the Surveyors Guide book, enabling existing planned maintenance jobs to be attached to individual survey items.
Planned maintenance activities proceed as normal throughout the year including all the STA linked items and then the system enables the operator to produce a status report for the STA surveyors review two weeks before the annual flag survey. In addition, when the STA is onboard for the annual survey the vessel is able to produce a report including the history of all jobs flagged as failures or unscheduled maintenance.
