UK-based Marine Software Ltd has recently delivered its MPMWin - Marine Planned Maintenance system to the Marine Society & Sea Cadets (MSSC) for their new flagship sail training vessel ‘TS Royalist’.
Built by Spanish shipyard Astilleros Gondan, this 32m Sail Training Brig will replace their old Royalistafter a successful 43 year service, being originally launched by Princess Anne back in 1971. Twelve Sea cadets and Royal Marine cadets from across the UK attended the shipyard launch in Spain on 19th Dec 14, and the vessel will be ready for the start of the 2015 sailing season ready to take thousands more cadets on an offshore voyage experience over the next 40 years.
Sea Cadets is a national youth charity committed to supporting 14,000 young people through nautical adventure and challenge to give them the best head start in life. Key to its core is providing incredible offshore adventure and the charity operates an offshore fleet of five vessels to ensure it can provide that.
MSSC has been working with Marine Software planned maintenance systems for eight years now. The system has proved popular and is installed in three of its 24m vessels with great results. The charity’s new flagship is in the process of having the maintenance database populated, ready for vessel acceptance in the next two months.
