K Marine Ship Management and Solverminds jointly develop dedicated SIRE 2.0-ready management module


K Marine Ship Management Pte. Ltd. (KMSM), a ship management company of the Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” LINE) Group, completed the development of a dedicated SIRE 2.0-ready management module with SVM Solutions and Technologies Pte. Ltd. (Solverminds). This module is based on KMSM’s KONeCT ship management business platform and this development is ahead of the initiatives of other companies.

KMSM manages reports on ship safety, inspections, maintenance and other matters on KONeCT. KMSM and Solverminds started jointly developing a dedicated SIRE 2.0 management module that works on KONeCT in 2022. The dedicated management module was built to comply with the SIRE 2.0 ship inspection process.

The Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE), formulated and managed by OCIMF (Oil Companies International Marine Forum) has been revised and it is expected that SIRE 2.0 will start being used in the second quarter of 2024.

The module incorporates items from the new CVIQ (Compiled Vessel Inspection Questionnaire) standard for SIRE 2.0, enabling the comprehensive management of processes from the preparation for inspections to the reporting after the completion of inspections. It is expected to increase the quality and efficiency of business.

The “K” LINE Group says it will further advance the digitalisation of information and administrative processes as well as vessels, maintain providing industry leading safe and optimal service and continue to ensure safety in navigation and cargo operations.
