CWind has implemented CrewSmart’s management support system across its fleet of 21 crew transfer vessels (CTVs) and a team of offshore wind technicians.
The system has been integrated with CWind’s existing vessel monitoring platform BareFLEET and is said to provide the company with a single point of access to all performance data from across the fleet.
With the system, CWind said it has access to essential information for the CTV fleet, crew and technician requirements, including personnel records, operational data, and commercial and financial information.
According to the UK company, the cloud-based system gives comprehensive control over personnel and fleet administration, optimizing the overall efficiency of the operations team.
Joshua Brennan, CWind Director of Operations, said: “Investing in digital CrewSmart technology provides distinct advantages for CWind’s fleet and operations team. As a result, we are ensuring that we can continue to deliver excellent service to our offshore wind clients, globally.”
CrewSmart has also developed a bespoke inventory management module and near-field communication (NFC) system in collaboration with CWind, designed to support the company with maintaining an inventory of all critical components, tools, spares, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
With the new system, CWind said CrewSmart has supported the reduction of administrative challenges and increased the focus placed on the delivery of projects for offshore wind developers, owners and contractors.
