Technical Management

Combining a highly-experienced, professional onshore team and selected vessel crew, Suntech Ship Management provides high quality technical management services to shipowners globally.

Our approach to technical management is founded on the principle that prevention is better than cure. Focusing our efforts on maintaining the safety of our vessels and crew, we minimise operational and environmental risk and ensure the constant availability of experienced personnel to manage unforeseen events.

In order to optimise vessel operation and cost efficiency, we use advanced IT systems that provide seamless integration and communication between ship and shore. These activities include planned maintenance, dry docking, budgeting & accounting, inventory/personnel/ safety management and paperless purchasing.

As with any investment, we understand the desire of owners for regular updates on the physical, operational and financial condition of their assets. We provide tailored, transparent and user-friendly vessel reporting to shipowners that detail vessel maintenance status, purchasing and technical maintenance plans and history and comprehensive costs analysis.

Please contact us to discuss your technical management requirements and how we can fulfill them.

Suntech Ship Management conducts performance monitoring through an increased frequency of checks and detailed management techniques. SeaLink suits this approach as it allows transparency and is a readily-auditable system.

The software is geared to streamline the management of vessels by means of providing a seamless integration between ship and shore for planned maintenance, inventory management, paperless purchasing, fleet personnel management, safety management including document management for the company’s SMS and dry-dock management.

The system is based on a common set of menus for all modules which makes navigation intuitive. The application loads a screen with Alerts and Notifications during the initial login both onboard and ashore. Typical alerts are generated for a vast number of functions including: maintenance, class, statutory requirements, crew change dues, safety alerts, spares/ROB, ship staff certifications, RFQ’s/ requisitions, repairs, conditions of class, non conformances etc.

This information empowers shipboard management as well as shore management to make quick decisions.

The main components of the software are:

  • Standardized ship reports and Information management
  • Planned maintenance
  • Purchase and Inventory
  • Repair and breakdown management
  • Safety and document management
  • Voyage performance management
  • Budget and accounting
  • Communications management
