CRUISE COMPANY OPTS FOR SRTP SOFTWARE SOLUTION

Tuesday, September 8, 2020 

Multi-disciplinary marine, scientific and technical consultancy Brookes Bell has been contracted through the Meyer Werft shipyard on behalf of Norwegian Cruise Line to deliver its software solution SRtP Onboard across the 'Breakaway Plus' class of vessels.

The software has been installed on the recently-launched Norwegian Encore, along with the delivery of training to all crew involved. The software will be rolled out across other vessels including Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Bliss and Norwegian Joy during 2020.

The SRtP Onboard software assists with the management of the response to casualties by providing crew with relevant guidance to support each situation and restore system functionality. The software monitors the response in real time and simplifies a complex logistics process by assigning tasks to groups, either through Wi-Fi connected devices or in paper format, with the required details needed to complete the actions.

Following the introduction of the Safe Return to Port regulations, the responsibility to show continuous compliance across a vessel’s lifetime, post build, lies with the operator. SRtP Onboard supports demonstration of compliance to Flag by recording all SRtP drills and complies with the specific requirements of the Bahamas Authority Marine Notice 03. The system is designed to provide an onboard knowledge base which can be improved after every drill, continuously increasing the efficiency of the SRtP casualty response process.

Vittorio Vagliani, Head of Software, Brookes Bell said: “SRtP Onboard is a tried and tested solution to assist vessel operators manage the regulatory requirements and prove compliance. Our solution also goes beyond compliance, providing the crew with a wealth of useful information on the systems onboard”

Giovanni Canu, VP Special Projects and Operational Support, Norwegian Cruise Line, said: “In order to ensure our fleet is ready for the operational requirements of Safe Return to Port regulations, we selected Brookes Bell’s SRtP Onboard software. This offers an efficient and informative solution that has already successfully been installed on Norwegian Encore and will be installed on the rest of our Breakaway Plus class vessels. We also expect to extend this solution to Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway.”
