Following the Shipdex Conference in Augsburg 16th February, a number of ship owners have contacted MAN Diesel & Turbo for delivery of Shipdex maintenance data.

The majority of the ship owners seek data for their new buildings, but there is also interest from owners planning to retrofit vessels with new maintenance systems (CMMS). However, with some ship owners the dialog has stopped short because their CMMS is not Shipdex compliant.

Says Henrik Striboldt, Business Development Manager at MAN Diesel & Turbo, "We would be more than happy to deliver high quality maintenance data in Shipdex format to our customers, allowing them to maximize their benefit from operating our products – so we recognize a need for more CMMS companies to upgrade their software to become Shipdex compliant."
