KOREA – UK – WORLDWIDE – BMT SMART (BMT), the Hampshire based specialist fleet and vessel performance management company of the BMT Group, has announced new contracts with Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI). BMT will supply vessel performance monitoring systems for four VLCC's for a Greek owner which comes on the back of current orders already received from SHI for seven vessels (Suezmax and Aframax tankers) for Norwegian and Singapore owners. Mr Chang Su Lee, Sales Director at Marbiss, BMT's local agent in Korea commented that:

“BMT has secured several projects with SHI based on a strong reputation of delivering high quality products. Working in partnership with BMT, we’re looking forward to working with SHI to ensure the solutions are fit for purpose and fulfil the needs of their customers.”

BMT will provide SHI with its modular vessel performance monitoring solution, SMART VESSEL which has been designed to be flexible to user’s requirements. The system collects analogue and serial feeds before transferring the data to BMT’s cloud based performance monitoring system. The aim of the data collection is to enable the operator to ensure maximum efficiency, particularly as regards energy consumption. Peter Mantel, Managing Director of BMT SMART said:

“This is a great win for us and we appreciate the support our service partners Marbiss and Intra Mare Hellas provided to help us secure these projects. In a world where we are inundated with data, it’s critical that we focus on providing a solution that helps to transform this complex information into actionable insights, only then can owners and operators truly begin to enhance operational efficiency and profitability.”
