Statistics from the European Harbour Masters’ Committee show that 95 percent of personal injury incidents are caused by ropes and wires, and 60 percent of these injuries happen during mooring operations.
In an effort to bring these numbers down, central mooring rules and regulations are being amended and updated. In 2018, the fourth edition of the Mooring Equipment Guidelines (MEG4) introduced the Mooring System Management Plan (MSMP) for tankers.
As in everything, technology has advanced in that field as well, with the development of various solutions, like for example “smart ropes”, that use sensors to advise the current condition of the mooring equipment.
This however still requires to be monitored and properly maintained as well.
OceanManager’s MSMP system, does just that! By using a very easy web platform and mobile app, the mariners can now monitor the current condition and “running hours” of the mooring equipment, paperless, keeping themselves and the office properly informed, ensuring less incidents, reduced costs and more importantly minimise life threatening accidents.
In addition to our MSMP solution, OceanManager Inc. provides consultancy services, for the implementation and maintenance of MSMP, through our valued partner Pace Marine Solutions, giving to our clients a holistic approach.
OceanManager’s mission, through MSMP and all our solutions, is to provide you actionable information for data driven decisions, and help you achieve:
