A tie up between Norwegian software specialist VesselMan and DNV GL aims to deliver an optimised solution for dry-docking management

Customers of VesselMan, which produces a multi-platform project management tool for dry-docking, will now be able to access DNV GL’s Best Practices for dry-docking as part of their services. After the two organisations agreed to integrate DNV GL’s Best Practices for dry-docking into the VesselMan cloud-based system.

The VesselMan software enables effective collaboration between management, customers, yards, suppliers and the site-team in a digital value chain that its developers claim demonstrates huge potential for cost savings, improved transparency and more robust operations.

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