UniSea AS, a software developer and consultancy specializing in solutions for the shipping industry, has been selected by Tidewater Inc. as its partner in the digitalizing and standardizing of Tidewater’s business processes related to health, safety, environment and quality (HSEQ) and operations. The UniSea software suite will be implemented on all Tidewater vessels and in all offices in one of the largest contract’s in UniSea’s 21-year history.

Tidewater Inc., headquartered in Houston, is shortly to become the world’s biggest operator of offshore service vessels (OSV) following its merger  with Gulfmark Offshore, with 273 vessels and 25 offices worldwide. Under the terms of the contract,  Tidewater will implement UniSea modules for procedures and manuals, incident reporting, environmental and fuel consumption reporting, risk assessments, International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Codes, Permit to Work, audits and more.

“As the requirements for quality assurance and reporting have increased in recent years - due to the needs of authorities, customers and internal requirements - UniSea has continued to focus on delivering optimal software solutions based on a user-friendly design”, said Kurt Roar Vilhelmsen, UniSea CEO.  “We are therefore delighted to welcome the world’s biggest vessel owner in the offshore shipping industry into the UniSea family – confirmation that we are continuing to set the industry standard in the offshore shipping software market.”

The announcement comes on the back on a number of recent deals for UniSea with companies in China, England, France, Norway, Sweden and the USA. Only two weeks ago, Norwegian seismic company PGS Geophysical - listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange and with offices worldwide -  also signed a contract with UniSea.
