M M S Delivers P l a n n ed M a i n t e n a n c e S y s t em For C a n a r c t i c Icebreaker

Marine Management Systems (MMS) recently implemented their Planned Maintenance (PMS) system aboard an icebreaker owned by Canarctic Shipping, Ltd, of Ottawa, Canada, according to an announcement made by MMS vice president, Don Logan.

Operating under a contract awarded through the Marine Management Centre (MMC) in London, England, the PMS system was installed aboard the M/V Arctic, a Grade 4 icebreaker/oil bulk ore carrier/ research ship. The Arctic operates in the northern Canadian regions where on-the-spot maintenance procedures are vital and operating costs are high, making planned maintenance a crucial concern.

Canarctic engineers were trained by MMS technical staff in Stamford, Conn., and the system was installed by MMC personnel. Full shipboard IBM PC/AT computer configuration and ongoing support for the project will be handled by MMS.

Founded in 1969, MMS is a leader in providing computerized management information systems for the shipping industry. The PMS System is part of MMS' Ship Management Information Series of systems for shoreside and shipboard use.
