SeaZip Offshore Service expands contract with MirTac for two new vessels

25 May, 2016. Recently, MirTac has implemented the Star Fleet Management software onboard the two new innovative SeaZip vessels, SeaZip 5 and 6. SeaZip Offshore Services only took delivery of these swift and reliable vessels last month, expanding their fleet to six Damen Fast Crew Suppliers (2610). The vessels will be primarily deployed in the building, operation and maintenance of windfarms at sea.


The Star software already runs in the office and onboard the other SeaZip vessels and supports its staff with maintenance, quality, health, environmental and safety management. The seamless integration of the vessels with the office also allows for efficient spare parts management, purchase processes, crew management and compliance with governmental and customer regulations.


Barend Tooten, Managing Director MirTac says: ‘It is a great pleasure to support SeaZip in their innovative operations. We congratulate Jan Reier Arends and his staff with yet another exciting addition to his growing fleet.’


Jan Reier Arends, Owner/Managing Director SeaZip adds: ‘We have always been able to count on MirTac’s knowledge and support. MirTac has been a business partner for years, already since the Star implementation onboard the JR Shipping fleet. We are looking forward to continuing this strong relationship.’


Built to meet highest continuity requirements
The FCS vessels are designated for the transport of passengers and small quantities of freight. They are built according to the Damen-patented so-called Twin Axe Bow design, which ensures very stable seagoing conditions. The vessels are over 25 metres long and can transport 12 passengers. In light of their stability and high level of safety, they are eminently suited to providing 24/7 services on the open sea. This is a significant competitive advantage, given the fact that wind farms tend to be built at ever greater distances from the coast and continuity of scheduled operations must be guaranteed in all circumstances. The two new SeaZip vessels exhibit a number of adaptations such as an increased draught -allowing an increased loading capacity of 25%- and improved bow fenders.
