MirTac bags contract with Symphony Shipping

24 October, 2016. Symphony Shipping, promising newcomer in the project market, has signed a contract with MirTac for the provision of Star fleet management software and related services. With this contract Symphony Shipping aims for higher data quality allowing to optimally improve its fleet operations such as maintenance, purchasing and QHSSE. Symphony Shipping chose to start the implementation on her two new build DP2 vessels, Symphony Performer and Symphony Provider, to be delivered in December 2016 and April 2017. Symphony joins the MirTac customer community with shipping leaders such as Jumbo Shipping, RollDock, JR Shipping, Jack-Up Barge and the Clearwater Group.


‘In constructive meetings our goals and expectations versus the capabilities of the Star software and MirTac’s services were extensively examined’, says Daan Boterman, QHSSE Manager at Symphony Shipping. ‘With our combined knowledge of on board technical operations and safety translated into the Star software, we will optimize operational efficiency and enhance quality and safety management.’ In addition, vessel administration including bunkering data, voyage planning, crew planning and cash books are part of the implementation. A clear fleet dashboard and actual management reports enhance insight into the fleet performance and render tools to take appropriate actions. Barend Tooten, Managing Director MirTac, says: ‘We are proud to welcome such an innovative and successful heavy lift specialist among our customers. We are looking forward to this partnership’.


Symphony's two Long Range DP2 (dynamic positioning) vessels, are currently under construction at the Ferus Smit shipyard in Leer, Germany. The new ships will be equipped with a Kongsberg K-Pos 21 DP2 system serving three 1,200 kW tunnel thrusters and two 2,200 kW Schottel propulsion units. The ships will be used in cargo supply runs for offshore platforms, assisting pipe laying and cable laying operations, decommissioning and offshore wind component feedering. As well as the DP2 vessels under construction, Symphony also had six 1A FS-Ecobox 10,500 dwt multipurpose ships on order. Four new builds have already been delivered, while two more - Symphony Spirit and Symphony Space - are also under construction at the Ferus Smit shipyard.
