As the offshore wind industry matures, vessel operators must keep on top of the evolving expectations of project owners around vessel and crew compliance, as well as the key metrics of vessel availability and ‘time on turbine’. An advanced approach to fleet and crew management is critical to supporting this, and investing in innovative digital platforms is becoming essential for operators expanding their own businesses, whilst meeting the evolving requirements of the industry. 

CrewSmart’s cloud-based system provides immediate access to essential information across Tidal Transit’s CTV fleet and crew, including personnel records, certifications for vessels and crew, and invoicing. The single, centralised platform gives the management team complete visibility and control to support critical decision making.

It will play an important role in ensuring the availability of their specialist CTVs and crew, both now and as the business looks to double its fleet size to meet the demands of a swelling international offshore wind market.

“CrewSmart alleviates the administrative burden on the operations team, presenting critical information clearly and instantly, making it easy for the business to act on issues and plan for contracts” said Christian Adams, Director of CrewSmart. “In order to further support vessel operators in meeting the evolving requirements of the industry whilst maintaining their high operational standards, we have also developed a function for senior management to see a Compliance Score for the business. CrewSmart calculates this percentage score through the aggregation of vessel and crew certifications and gives the senior team immediate and full visibility of compliance issues before they affect CTV and crew availability.”

Leo Hambro, Commercial Director of Tidal Transit Ltd, added that as the company takes the first steps towards meeting its target of doubling the fleet within the next 4-5 years, investment in a system that will manage that transition smoothly has been – and will continue to be - an essential part of the expansion process.

“Going forwards, the CrewSmart platform will be a core part of our commercial strategy” Mr Hambro said. “We now have complete visibility and control over our mission-critical information, and this has generated one of the global efficiency gains that allow us to grow as a company.”
