Customers of dry-docking project management tool VesselMan will now be able to access DNV GL’s Best Practices for dry-docking as part of their services.

Dry-docking is an important part of a vessels mandatory maintenance regime and takes place regularly throughout the vessel’s life-cycle. However, without proper management and planning, ship-owners and operators can often experience cost overruns, lengthy dock stays, and lost opportunities.

Responding to these challenges, VesselMan recently teamed up with classification society DNV GL to integrate DNV GL’s Best Practices for dry-docking into their cloud-based system.

“By combining DNV GL’s broad knowledge and experience with dry-docking processes and VesselMan’s cloud-based management system, we are offering a more professionalized and modern approach to dry-dock management making ship-owners and operators better equipped to plan and execute their dry-dockings in future,” said Bjørn Berger, Head of Department, Maritime Advisory, DNV GL.

Building on many years of delivering advisory services to docking projects across every ship segment, DNV GL has built up a dry-docking standard suitable for any ship type and ship operator. The Best Practices are incorporated in VesselMan’s system as templates with easy to follow checklists for every step of the dry-docking process.

With a digitalized solution, such as the one offered by VesselMan, DNV GL’s standard is now accessible at any time to customers throughout the world.
